I was in my 20s the first time I experienced tingling on my left side. I have never been good about going to the doctor and attributed it to anemia. Over the years doctors affirmed my assumption and I never thought more of it, although I have had general left side weakness. I just though I had nerve damage due to untreated anemia. I should never have self diagnosed myself.
In mid June of this year I started experiencing involuntary finger and toe movements. My anxiety level has skyrocketed. I have been to the neurologist and have am currently undergoing the various tests. I did have an abnormal MRI. I have a feeling I will be diagnosed.
My father was diagnosed with MS in his early 50s. He is still walking and living independently. I have so much anxiety and fear over my probable diagnosis.
I don't even know where to begin.
