Hi steph. My neurologist is sending me for a MRI scan which I'm still waiting for an appointment but she thinks my numbness is down to fibromyalgia because my numbness is not consistent with nerve damage.
Sorry I can't be of any more help to you.

My numbness started with pins and needles in my arms waking Me during the night. I now have constant numbness in my left arm and left foot. I have just been given a crutch to walk with. I hate the fact that I seem to be getting worse.

Hi Bebbe,

That's so frustrating :( I am sorry to hear that. I know how you are feeling. Have you called them to find out where you are on the list - as there will be a backlog now. I'm wondering whether your doctor can help to push you up the list so that you are seen sooner rather than later? It might be worth a try. It's horrible to feel in limbo isnt it?

Take care and let us know how you get on.

Oh no! :hugs:

I can imagine how you feel as you get prepared for the day like myself and for it to be canceled must be so frustrating. I hope they can book you in soon!

Iv not heard anything yet so :fingerscrossed: mines still going ahead later although they do stress that if emergancy cases come thro i'll be left to wait or come back another time so i will wait and see.
