I am a 22 year old female. A few weeks ago I went to Spain and had air conditioning on high and in the night I got a very tight pain in my arms. It went over 24 hours however I came back and in my new job I had the same pain from air con but in light arm, it is a tight pain like blood pressure is being taken. I then started getting tingling in feet and legs and all in my body. I am worried it is MS as that's what I've seen online. Also to add my mum and sister both got diagnosed with arthritis very young and as well as that I have an iron deficiency. Please help!
None of that indicates the onset of MS (you watch way too much television; especially Greys Anatomy or House re runs)
It is more likely you are badly anaemic. Go to the doctor, get your bloods done and the Doctor will probably give you an Iron infusion in the surgery although you may have to pick up the script and take it back to the doctor to get the infusion done. Iron tablets are horrible in my experience. A unit of whole blood is quite nice, but usually as the doctors last and only choice.
Holly; Stephen gave some great advice, Please don't stress over it until you have seen the doctor and let them run the test you need, Let the doctor know what is going on and what else runs in the family. The sooner you get started on this the faster you well know and they can start working to help you in whatever way you need.
