    Do I have MS?? Any suggestions

    I am a 21 year old male. I have been to a neurologist and diagnosed with migraines. I get constant twitching in my leg and arms and back lately. I also have felt a tightness in my neck for over two weeks. When I touch the back of my right butt the top of my shin where it meets my ankle area tingles and kind of hurts. I am worried all of this are ms symptoms.

    Burkeblues8,

    There are over 400 diseases and maladies which can mimic MS. Rather than jumping right towards MS, early tests for something like Vitamin D deficiency can bring answers. Migraines can cause lesions and would have to be investigated too.

    It is impossible to say with any certainty that you do or do not have MS because of the number of variables and known mimicries. If MS is suspected, please seek an appointment with an MS Specialist. They are neurologists whose specialty is MS. If you have a known mimicry, you could be referred to yet another specialist, but you would have the right answers nonetheless.
