    Worried I have mnd strange symptoms

    hi my symptons started about 2 weeks ago I had a ache in my jaw on 27th November it felt tight and tough , after a day I then got hypersalivation the next day followed by a consistent dry mouth for 3 days , this chilled out then all of a sudden about a week I had a numb feeling in left leg which almost feels weak I notice it more walking each day there is no pain it just feels heavy, also then noticed my hand and arm it also feels numb/weak I am having trouble typing and doing some simple things, and also a cough and fly symptoms developed I had a positive result for covid-19 2 days ago, just today my face has gone completely numb and weak to the point it was hard to talk and swallow the left hand is the weakest its been and also the left leg its all on one side, I've had bloods done which has ruled out diabetes and other medical conditions so I'm at a limbo I hope its the covid that is causing these issues but they seem very extreme and the symptoms are not coming and going they are just staying put.

    Dear Sam94,

    I am sorry to hear you are feeling quite poorly.

    Motor Neurone Disease symptoms do not usually appear in the ways you have described.

    However, if you are concerned please do speak to your GP, who should be able to examine you for any signs of weakness and refer you to Neurology if this is the appropriate course of action.

    You can also call the MND Connect helpline on 0808 802 6262 if you would like to speak to an adviser about your concerns.

    With kind regards

      Sam94 you need to see yourself through this covid time before worrying about other possibilities. Covid symptoms vary from person to person. Hope you feel better soon xx
