Severe Pins and Needles
« on: April 06, 2014, 06:59:34 PM »
I took a hot bath because my feet were sore after work and while I was in there I folded my left leg under my right leg (sat on it) and when I got out a had really bad pins and needles in that left foot. I wasn't sitting on it that hard! And I read hot water can do that to people with MS. Because it has to do with demyelination in the nerves. Anybody have some helpful info! I really didn't think I was sitting on my foot that hard.

BARELY! It was barely underneath me not much pressure and it was severe pins and needles. Plus I was in water wouldn't that mean even less pressure was on my foot?

Just curious if you've had tests to rule out ms or seen a neuro? Or is it a new fear?

I want to see a neuro but can't bc I have no health insurance.

My fear has lasted a couple of weeks. Had super bad anxiety for the last 2 months straight though. Every. Single. Day. Saw my Dr., he immediately said anxiety and then checked my eyes and knee reflexes because I bet he thought that would ease my mind. But I've read too much, I know that's not sufficient testing haha. I don't think he realized I knew so much about MS.

He did say though, after he checked my eyes and after having my optic nerve looked at through dilation exam that this was very telling because the optic nerve is the most commonly effected in MS patients because it's so vulnerable. He said there's usually be an abnormality in the "follow my finger" test or pupil reaction to light.

Again, didn't ease my mind but whatever. Until I have testing I know this is gonna be a tough fear to shake. Regardless of how illogical it is to think I have MS. 0.13 percent chance of having MS if between age 20-50. I'm 16 so it's even lower I suppose. AND it was previously thought that MS. Affected 2 females for every 1 male. Now they're saying it could even be as high as 4 females per 1 male. So my odds are even lower. And yet, odds don't make me feel any better!!! I keep saying "the odds of getting it didn't help those who have it now. Someone's gonna get it why not me?"
