My mom was diagnosed with MS about a year ago, and i know it is genetic and i have had some symptoms...i think. These syptoms that i have have been around for a long time and i just never really thought anything of them until my mom was diagnosed, well anyways i just had a few questions that maybe some of you would know. I have been having a heck of a time with words-remembering words for it's use and finding myself lost in sentences and stuff like that... is that a symptom? Also i know that people with MS get sore or nubness in their legs and i get tingling feelings, kind of like when your foot is comming out of being asleep and also feeling like kind of poor circulation in my arms and legs and weak...is that what it feels like? and what actually made me start researching tonight and comming upon this site is virtago, i have been soooooo dizzy for like the past six hours or so and this has never happened to me. is this a syptom? i don't know maybe i am just paranoid! Also will a doctor only try to diagnose it if you have a lapse? I just have this feeling that i do have it and i know it is best found early!!! thank you all for listening to me and any feed back would be very nice!
