: Hi,

: I am wondering if the symptoms i have are MS, i first went to the dr. 5 years ago, ( he said it was all in my head) this past year, i feel much worse than ever, i get a weird shuddering sensation that only lasts a few seconds in my upper body usually when i'm a little tired, my left side ( fingers and arm) are weak and somewhat numb ( pins and needles) , my eyes don't seem to focus like they used to, i feel "drunk" yet i don't even drink,i feel like i'm having a hard time controlling my speech and saliva, also my reflexes seem to be slower when driving, i had never seen a dr. before that time 5 years ago, after he did heart tests ( i knew it wasn't my heart) he said it was all in my head, i must have emotional problems ( the only emotional problem i ever had was him) Do these sound like MS? i've never been checked although i did have an MRi a few years ago and they said everything was normal, what kind of test can i ask my Dr, for? any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks, Kristine

You donot say wether these syptoms are constant?.Yes they are similar to problems you have with MS but......they are also similar to a whole range of other illnesses.So tests are the only way to elimanate these things.You need to find a good consultant.At this point I would like to say are these syptoms worse at or just before your period?Strange as you may think ,but many women experience these disturbed neurological functions at that time and it is very dibilatating.Particularly all the sensory things that just donot seem to be working properly.(ie swallowing,vision,balance,headaches,tremors etc).Infact this is sometimes the reason that some women are given a MS diagnosis....when infact it is a hormonal inbalance that effects the nervous system in a similar way.....big difference is that hormonal inbalances are curable and treatable.So donot be scared.....go find out what the source of the problem is....and then work with the facts.Best of luck.Elsie
