Customer Question

I have fallen twice for no reason, have pins and needles in both arms and hand especially when lying on my back, occasionally have no feeling in my feet when I put them to the floor when getting up in the mornings, have no sensation / feeling at all when having sex and occasionally cannot wait to go to the toilet (not able to 'hang on')

Hello form JA
Have you had any testing
Sepcifically an MRI of the brain
And/or spine?

MS needs to be considered
As does spinal disease at this point.

The need to urinate could be more of a pelvic floor problem or other problems, but might also be influenced by a neurological problem.

Your next step needs to be neurological exam, and testing based on exam.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.

Otherwise please choose a positive rating [smiley face or accept]. But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
