MS or anxiety?

Hello Im 26 and have three kids..recently just had my third a month ago. After the birth of my second I was told I had anxiety disorder GAD. The thing is there were no test to rule out MS then other then blood work. Anxiety runs in my family but after the birth of my third baby a month ago I dont feel right. My symptoms are numbness and tingling in my arms legs and mouth, muscle weakness all over...not servere. Lightheadedness, vision problems, and feeling of something in my throat 24/7...I also have GERD which might cause that. Im sooo scared cause a friend of mine had a baby two years ago and was diagnosed with MS right away. She uased to fall alot and I have never did that but scared all the other problems Im having. HELP! My symptoms are 24/7 and dont go away. Can you relate?

Re: MS or anxiety?

I had the exact same symptoms (including GERD), but I also had a high fever. I haven't had any kids. My symptoms just started out of the blue one day. Have you had an MRI? People with MS often times have brain lesions that show up on an MRI. I actually had a weird, unknown virus. The symptoms were horrible and I felt completely alone. The only thing that proved it wasn't stress related was that I had a high fever and my white blood cell count went up and down a lot. I was tested for many, many different viruses. In the end, the doc just gave up. She called it a virus of the nervous system. It took me over a year to get back to normal.
