I am a 49-year-old woman. My symptoms started around four or five months ago. I started losing sensation from the feet now up to my armpits. I cannot feel pain or hot or cold. I do not have any pain. This also has come with a lot of muscle weakness In my legs. I am at the point now I cannot walk around for more than 15 minutes at a time. I also get muscle spasms in my legs and feet.
My process of treatment so far has been a T spine MRI Which showed a problem between C7 and T1 It appears to be spinal stenosis with degenerative disc disease I was sent to a neurosurgeon who ordered a cervical MRI to see if there was more spinal stenosis in the neck. This MRI also found a problem between C6 C7 and T1 but it was not read to be spinal stenosis but rather possibly MS. The surgeon sent me back to the neurologist to follow up on the MS theory. The neurosurgeon did not think the disc problem and a possible small bone spur were enough to cause the symptoms I'm having and said I didn't need surgery. The neurologist ordered a brain MRI. That came back mostly inconclusive for MS. I apparently have some lesions but not thought to be MS lesions So now the neurologist says it has to be structural and is sending me back to the surgeon I can't get back in with him for another month. In the meantime the weakness gets worse I am very frustrated and need answers not to be bounced back-and-forth and not know what's wrong with me
