: For the past several months I have been really fatigued and have had neck pain, bad headaches, muscle twitching under the skin in numerous places, off and on. If I carry some kind of half way heavy bag for a half hour or so, when I put it down my left hand trembles. After a little while it stops. This morning I went out and pulled up weeds for about an hour. I did not sit down, just bent over and pulled them. It is very hot outside and humid and when I came back in my LEGS actually felt really weak and felt like my knees were trembling. The fingers on my left hand were jerking just a little. I actually had to sit down for awhile till my legs felt stable again.
: This has never happened. I recently had cervical xrays done, back xrays and a MRI of the head and neck.
: Am waiting on results. The possiblity of MS has been mentioned. Does this sound like anything related to MS?
: I tire easily too.
: Thanks in advance for any input. I really need some.
: Email is welcome also.

Lisa - You are going through a very difficult time of experiencing alot of unexplainable physical symptoms. It's very frustrating and, if it is MS, could take a long time to find a definitive answer. I thought you might find some useful info at this website:

Click onto the topics of "environment", "fatigue", and "diagnosis" for answers to your particular questions. This site is a Q and A forum with a dr. who specialized in MS. Hope this helps. Sandy
