@hopeful33250 Honestly had my suspicions of MS during my 3 flare up in January but the doctors at did not think it was MS. I had been experiencing flares since 2015. Some of my symptoms are needle and pins feelings, burning sensation, numbness, bowel issues, tightness in my chest like I had a tight girdle on (which I later found out is the “MS hug”), headaches, sensitivity to hot and cold and a host of other issues. My first flare lasted for 8 weeks before I started to get better.
During my last flare I realized I was not bouncing back to normal I took matters in my own hands and sort outside medical care. I have had so many test that it will make your head spin. What lead to the diagnosis was the brain and Cervical Spine MRI and spinal tap. I have started therapy and just completed my second dose.
There is not a day I am not in pain. I don’t even know how a painless day feels anymore. But I try to stay active and move foward with life because I have too.
