New...feedback would be great :O)

Hi Everyone I just found this great board. I have made a promise to myself to go to a dr. soon.. I guess a news years resolution. I have been thinking I have MS for 1.5 years now ( I am 29). It was a month after I had my son (I thought I might)... I had extreme foot pain, and numbness in my hands and feet. When I would be sitting for a while, and then get up I would sometimes almost buckle with the pain. Also if I went walking for too long I would have pain. Well those two symptoms alone were not that "scary" it was when I was forced to look at many things I have been facing and not dealing with, here are some of them:
*White fog over my eyes (did go see a dr, they told me I had blocked tear ducts) sometime just white spots.
* I have been having issues speaking (looking back this started 3-4 years ago) mixing up words (i.e. fool, instead of food), slurring speech, not being able to pronunciation, and forgetting words fully.
*Memory issues.. very bad at times, from where did I park my car, to what was I to do. ( I used to have the best memory)
*Tired. I have been so tired that my eyes start to burn and I yawn all afternoon.
*Depression (not sure if this has anything to do with it, I have never admitted to anyone I was, but have fought it for a while on and off).
*overheat sometimes for no reason.
*When walking actually have to think about lifting my feet sometimes.
*heavy legs at times.
*very emotional.. can cry so easy I think I am pregnant!
*hearing is bad, worse at times (progressive for the last 3-4 years)
*I get numb fingers and toes and pins and needles
*light headed at times
*My legs down to my feet hurt from too much walking or standing.
*hard to concentrate/pay attention.
*problems swallowing like something is stuck at times.

My speaking problems are really bad right now along with tiredness and memory. I have not told anyone but my husband (just the other day). It is very embarrassing that I cannot communicate effectively anymore at work. I just can't imagine his getting worse, holding down a professional job ect..
Not sure what I expect by typing all of this... I guess feedback, maybe some similar... One thing I have learned from this site already is to start a journal... it will help for the dr apt.
Thanks Everyone,
paula
