Here is My Question:
Recently been smelling strong cigarette smoke, pain and weakness in left arm and leg, neck and shoulder pain and shooting pain in head. Rectal spasms when the weird smell occurs. I have Crohn's Disease and convinced I have MS. Being referred to neurologist. Alongside depression and memory lapses. I’ve had this in episodes for past few years on and off. Hip pain etc. can’t find anything on MRI. Docs says not stroke but I know this is nervous system. Could this be start of MS flare?
I suppose your symptoms could be related to any number of things including MS. Your upcoming neurological evaluation should provide you with the necessary answers to your question.
