Exclamation Any Advice?

I've been seeing an ENT for dizziness that began back in february. Since then, it's gotten a lot better. But after my ENG, which showed weakness in both ears, my doctor asked me if i experienced any numbness or tingling. I did back in january when I had a series of bad headaches that the neuro diagnosed as migraine. I get VERY quick tingling in random places in my body (rarely happens) along with muscle spasms and twitching (constantly lately, but may be because I dwell on it). I was wondering if this sounds like MS, but the dizziness has gotten better and the last time I experienced it, it was nowhere as bad as the first time. Could this be my nerves or should I consider MS?? I also had pulsatile tinnitus that has gotten better as well.

Re: Any Advice?

Hi Sparkle....the problem with MS is that it mimics so many other things. For peace of mind, I would allow the doctor to pursue the MS. If it is ruled out - YAY! If it is found to present, then you should start treatment asap. The symptoms you mentioned are all part of MS.....but only your doc can make the determination through a series of tests.
