About a month ago, I had severe pain in my chest which was diagnosed as costochondritis that was likely due to a really bad cold I had had a week before. A couple days later, I started to get tingling in my hands and feet and the muscles in my left cheek started to get numb/tight. All of these symptoms would come and go. A few days later, I started getting burning in my hands and feet and some joint pain. I went to my primary physician, who said I likely had a lingering virus and was overly stressed. He ran my bloodwork and everything came back normal. A couple days later, I started to get better, and then all the symptoms returned, and I began experiencing burning in my legs and occasionally my arms. Then I woke up with a lot of soreness in my legs with numbness in my hands and feet, as well as some muscle spasms. I went back to my physician who thought it could still be a lingering virus coupled with a sinus infection that I had been battling, so he prescribed me a 10 day course of a Z pack, and told me to see a neurologist if my symptoms didn't improve. Today I woke up with my back as stiff as a board and pain in my neck. All this has happened within a months time. Prior to this, I was a perfectly healthy 24 year old and now I wake up everyday worse and worse. Could this be MS or a more serious condition? Is it possible that it could just be a nasty virus causing this?
Thanks so much,
