hello, i'm in the `probable MS' limbo land with atypical features. Slow ascending progression from toes now to thighs over two years, no remittance. Quite off balance, over active feet reflexes and spinal `inflammation' on MRI with ` spots' on brain.
I am seeing a neurologist who has not tested for Hughes. I don't see him for 6 months now. Can I ask my GP to test this or shall I ask for an ealier appointment. I get the ` liver rash' all over my arms and legs when cold in winter, my hands and feet are permamantly freezing, and my dad has had earkly heart attacks (41) and now various vascular ailments. I am scared of self medicating, (or indeed getting false hope re. MS) but I feel almost instantly (30mins later) better after taking a junior aspirin- i can feel my feet and knees where usually I have little sensation on the skin. Am I being overoptimistic?
