My symptoms are all I can tell you at this time as I have not been given a diagnosis of ms.but I have read all the symptoms and I have each of them.getting a diagnosis is hard.I have been diagnosed with myofascail pn syndrome.and I believe that has to do with the sheath that covers the nerves.I spend most days in bed.but at times like when it is summer here in fl..I can work out in the yard all day long.anyone who would see me would question me as to am I really as sick as I say.I have blurred vision.I have fatigue.I have lower r.q. Pain and kidney pain or in that area.every test I have shows nothing.so now I am swallowing a pill with a camera in it so that my intestines may be photographed.I am still waiting for my ins.to ok this.and an mri/brain is also in the works.I have never had one.my psychiatrist who is very astute recently told me that he fears I may have  ms because of cognitive difficulties.my pain mang doc put me on tizanadene.which is a rx given to people with ms.and it seems to help me quite a bit.the reason I am writing this is because I was awakened with very sharp pains about where you appendix is located.but it feels to go through and through to my back..I am so time consumed with doctor appointments.test,blood work over and over.strange answers for certain tests.my eyes are very dry.my skin peels on my cuticles and heel of my feet.a couple of years ago I could drive anywhere.but I find when I get on an expressway my eyes blurry vividly.and I have hit the median on the interstate many times.I was just lucky that I never hurt someone else.so I can drive around the neighborhood ok.because when I stop at a red light.my vision clears up.my hands and feet are often numb.I can no longer do the heel toe walk.I seem to struggle through that.I have done every thing any doctor asked me.any test.and I worked at mayo ing nic for 7 years.so although I am not a doctor or nurse.I did obtain medical knowledge by osmosis.and this ms is the only thing that makes sense to me.I spill my glass of beverage every day.if I smoke the cigarette falls out of my hand without knowing it.I never drink alcohol.I just never liked it.smoking is my only vice.I show symptom's of sternoclidomastoiditis.ibs, and cognitive deficits.often going into a fuge state..starting a conversation and just stopping until you can resume what you were talking about.I do have bladder problems and severe sleep apnea.but I rather think that the issues of the brain is of more help as to diagnose ms.I have raynauds syndrome.and feet issues.some days it could be my thumb muscle that hurts so much I cannot sleep.restless leg syndrome.I am not sure how much I can write here so I am going to stop here.with all I have told you.is there a possibility I may have ms.

The signs and symptoms of MS vary considerably depending on the person and the severity of the condition. It is largely determined by the size of the plaques and where they are located in the brain or spine. The first signs and symptoms are abnormal sensations in the legs or hands, or on one side of the face.
Other early signs of MS include weakness, dizziness, loss of vision, double vision and nystagmus.

I have all of the symptoms for MS but the MRI was ok they said. I've had these problems going on 4 years I suppose. Can you have it and the mri be clear? The doctor said she was 80% sure but she still wants me to see the neurologist if the meds she have me doesn't help. And they haven't. They are also treating me for shingles that they say may be localized in my spine but for as long as this has been going on, shes doubtful that it is shingles. Ha 162.00 dollar medicine and That's generic! Name brand was 300 so, is it possible. I mean, you read the symptoms, That's me, except the brain lesions. ?

Have you been tested for lyme disease? Even though you may never had a tick bite, it could
have gone unchecked. Check out the lab called Igentix for lyme testing.

Ahh, the misery I live with has found you too! I went from being fitness model to disability, bedridden, and begging God to take me. Funds are exhausted, vision has too much blind spot to do much, muscles collapse & pass out from pain if I don't go lie down. I researched and tested everything, only they are too dumb to know what they see. It is nerve entrapment, SUV agrivaited fybromyalgia pressure points, severe spinal deterioration, & the genetic chromosome weakness from parkinses disease

I cannot stand for long periods of time. My back gets weak and it is just difficult to stand erect without pain.

One day while sitting in my SUV, I went to scratch my nose and realized it was numb. Then my whole body got numb as I stepped out of my vehicle. I then felt as it I was going to pass out. They could not find out what was wrong and it has been 3 weeks now with continuing numbness and vertigo. I have also experienced pain and limited mobility of my left arm since. I am awaiting MRI of the spine and brain to check for MS. Are these some of the signs? I am 27 yrs old.
