I have had numerous test for the last 7 yrs because of painful muscle spasms mostly in my neck and behind my right ear, arms, hands and fingers are weak. Several years ago it started extending to my lower extremeties (ie: weak upper leg muscles, pain in calves, numbness).
I had ACDF (C-5, C-6) sugery over 3 yrs ago and it only made the problem worse.
I recently went to a new neuro. After a brain and neck MRI they found spots on my brain stem stating it could be mini strokes or MS.
Reports indicate they are leaning towards MS and want to do a lumbar puncture next.
Anyone out there that has MS...do these symptoms sound familiar to you?
Would you please reply as to what symptoms you have?
Thanks.
