18 years old - Is it MS ? Helppp


It started sometime in May? I woke up one morning and I thought I was having a stroke or something, the left side of my face was completly numb from my left ear down including my tongue - I had some pain from my ear down into the back of my throat, and some problems swallowing. This lasted a couple of days and I didn't really think much of it

In June some time I noticed numbness/muted sensation in my thumb that lasted about a week. Once that subsided it started in my left hand at the same time I started getting numb again in my right hand but this time my middle index and thumb were affected.

For maybe a month after I was fine until I noticed some numbness in my forearms - my doctor referred me to someone else where I guess they did some tests on my nerves but that came out fine.

In september, the inside of my mouth was numb but just on the left side of the soft pallate. A couple of days ago I woke up and my arm felt a little weird, like I had to move it ( y'know when sometimes you get that feeling in your legs like you have to move it , like restless leg syndrome sort of thing lol ) but I thought I had just slept on it wrong, but now for a couple of days my left arm feels really heavy and my left cheek doesn't feel right - not quite numb, a little tingly I guess; whatever it is, it doesn't feel normal.

What do you guys think?
ps, my mom was diagnosed with MS when she was in her early 20s but it may have been a misdiagnoses because she hasn't had any symptoms since then. And the only thing that happened was some blindness I believe for a week and some damage to the optic nerve

You should be meeting with a neurologist who deals with MSers. Your mom might have had an MS incident and then experienced remission. Remission can last for many years. I met an older gentleman who enjoyed over 30 years of symptom free living.

You need to get looked at to learn what is happening to you.
MS diagnosed since October 3, 1982
MS onset circa 1977
