Am seeing the optometrist tomorrow within a 24 hour timeframe from report of symptoms (so serious) for flashes in the corners of my eyes when I move them, and a huge crop of really thick floaters.
This is ok, there's loads of info online. I know what it is.
This is different: Laid in bed (insomnia due to full moon interference, a story in itself) staring at the bookcase, I had a dark spot in the outer of my eye, which spread like powder in a cloud shape across my eye to the other side - I could see through the outer reaches of this, it was thinner there, so the powder analogy works. Then it retraced very smoothly, and then came again three times in that eye, and twice in t'other. A week or so later happened from above. I can SEE this, as in close my eyes and it's in reverse colour.
There is nothing online about this, which is extraordinary in itself I think.
Also how else likes Christmas cake (or Genoa - my fave) with Cheshire or Wensleydale cheese? I like them thickly sliced both. The creaminess and acidity of the cheese, plus the same texture as the rich, sweet and fruity cake, makes them perfect flavour partners.
Friday I had to sit down. The backs of my legs, top and bottom, felt like I'd been up a huge flight of stairs with a heavy rucksack on board, stood at the top. Wobbly. weak. Some pain into my calf as well.
Happened a week ago as well, that time in my quads, a bit of pain and felt weirdly weak with a few shooting pains.
Covid, oh, boy, how can I get to see my GP. They sent me a message back in Sept about calling them but life was entrenched with covid then as now. I need HRT as well.
I've seen the future and it doesn't look good.
This is fun.
Pain on scalp, spreads like the electric shocks on my foot, but I feel the tugging there and elsewhere, and pain. Very like the neuralgia I had years ago. Tugging there too. I get tugging on my hands sometimes.
Painkillers no help but I've read up on Valerian - I sleep absolutely rubbish, probably the perimenopause but also during the New Moon lunar phase, I average 8 hours across three nights. Valerian apparently helps with nerve pain, ( A source of GABA) as well as being good at reducing anxiety and also getting you off at night. I'm not on any other meds, rarely take brufen or paracetamol because they never help with my painful symptoms, and the migraine I get goes with aspirin, and that's rare too.
Took some after an hour of scalp hell and it seemed to work. Perhaps I expected it to ...
Hi all ,
New to this forum , have not been diagnosed with ms and basically have been wondering if this is an ms symptom.
Was driving home from work about 6 weeks ago and my middle , third and little finger tips on my right hand started to hurt as if they were bruised.
About half an hour later the exact same finger tips on my left hand started to feel exactly the same. It has lasted for about 5 weeks and then started to rectify but is still there a bit . Its just my fingertips and not my whole fingers and just the last three on each hand.
My question does ms present symmetrically like this?
I've noticed recently that if I knead dough or use a paint brush, I get a really painful sensation in my hands. Apart from headaches and back pain I'm not used to pain with MS.
It usually stops after a while. I can only liken it to shin splints.
Is this 'spasticity'?
Just in time for Easter...*joy*
