Thanks for your question.
do you any have any rash?
did you have any EMG study of the nerves?
No not yet
Peripheral neuropathy is a possibility.
Hashimoto's can cause this.
The nerves can be affected.
Hence, you need the nerve conduction and EMg study.
Also vitamin B12 level should be checked.
Another possibility can be autoimmune disorder
Hashimoto's increases risk of other autoimmune disorders.
Do you think its ms?
That is a good question.
MS can present with these symptoms.
But given the normal brain MRI, the risk is less.
However, MS lesions may be missed.
And if the suspicion is high, then MRI should be repeated after 6 months with MS protocol.
I haven't had any other symtoms ie dizziness, optic neuritis, The pain is not severe, no issues with balance,
That is why MS is low risk.
What are you thinking when you say auto immune
Is that progressive? How does it affect you?
this is also known as chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy.
This is usually progressive over time.
you currently have sensory symptoms.
Motor symptoms can develop over time
will it affect my mobility, indepependence etc?
it may but may take years.
okay thanks for your help
