Loss of feeling in right leg last night.

Feb 25, 2008 - 2 comments

Last night my youngest child woke up crying and I was unable to balance myself when I got out of bed.  There was no tingling in my leg, like when your leg goes to sleep, it was just dead, heavy.  I just leaned back towards the bed and layed there.  I thought what the heck is wrong with me.  I have had three doctors over the past 7 years because of insurance or doctors leaving practice.  I've always been healthy till just the past 10 years I have been noticing out of the normal things.  For instance I started having tremors in my left hand in 2000, it never goes away, and if I'm tired or stressed it gets worse. I have been diagnosed with SVT Tacharydia and Mitral Valve Prolapse back in 1994.  I take medicine for that and all is well except a a little arythmia and flutter know and than.  A year ago I got really sick and thought I had the flu, but it wasn't.  I ended up in the hospital for three days, some form of colonitis.  Than I was having episodes of crying, sadness for know reason and the doctor said I had depression.  I take Celexa for that.  Shortly thereafter I had a week of continuous itching on my legs, there was no rash, just so much itching I used a buff puff at night scrathing till I fell asleep and praying it would go away.  That lasted a whole week and just disappeared. Now I fight extreme fatigue at times and stiffness.  About a month ago I went through a period of all my joints in my entire body would just hurt so bad, especially when it was time to go to bed.  I hated of even thinking to go to bed.  Thank-God it has went away.  I still have continuous pain in my neck, I bought a special pillow.  I do notice one thing, if I excercise faithfully,@ least walk 1/2 hour three times a week with using my eliptical alot of this seems to subside.  I'm getting really desparate for an answer.  Maybe it's just my age, I'm only 44 and have always taken good care of myself and I'm very conscious of what I eat.  My weight is 148 lbs @ 5' 71/2".  I was reading about MS and I see alot of symptons  that I'm having, I don't know of anyone in my family with it.  I'm really concerned. I've been chalking it up as stress, but everyone has stress, these symptoms  just check in for now apparent reason.  Caffine has been my body lately for the fatigue.

I had the same thing happen to my leg four nights ago.  There is a history of stroke and aneurysms in my family so my internist ordered a MRI and a MRA for this coming Wednesday.  He is looking for an aneurysm or possible MS lesions.  

I would strongly urge you to go to your doctor and ask for a MRI and/or MRA.  Your symptoms do sound like they could indicate MS but I pray they do not.  

God bless.

Your GP must refer you to a Neurologist as soon as possible. You don't need to speculate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
