: I had temporary paralysis in my legs in March.I Had had numbness in my arms since the previous Sept. but it wasn't a big deal to me. I had the evoked potentials run and they came back with slowed timed indicating a possible lesion on my brain stem. The MRI was clear though. Since then have had numbness,tingling,heaviness,and weakness in all of my limbs,fatigue,blurred vision and temporary paralysis in my right arm.Am doing the testing all over again in Oct.What if the MRI is still clear?Should I keep testing or just give up and feel like I am crazy??!!I want to know what is wrong with me!!They have run blood tests to rule out other things. Does this sound like MS???Please answer!
:Have you had a spinal tap? Have you been to see an eye doctor. An eye doctor can see MS in your eyes. You're not crazy, dr.s are just afraid to diagnose MS. They try to rule everything else out first. I'd get a second opinion. You are seeing a neurologist right? Good luck.
