In recent months I have incurred frequent numbness in my hands as well as terrible pain in both wrists......I've noticed a fairly rapid vision deterioration, fatigue, and bumping into things.....Does this sound like typical symptoms of M.S.
Numbness in the hands and pain in the wrists can be caused by many things including common conditions like Carpal tunnel syndrome and less common entities like MS. Fatigue is also associated with many illness. Visual deterioration, if bilateral and progressive can be caused by MS but more often MS causes rapid visual deterioration in just one eye. Bumping into objects can be caused by visual loss or a problem with your balance. You certainly require an evaluation by a good neurologist asap.
