I have had MS for 30 years. One day I just started walking like I was drunk. Before that I had episodes of numbness in my hands,stomach and arm. Other symptoms are blurred vision,loss of eyesight and weakness. For fifteen years I had to use a cane or electric cart. I could not even walk 1/4 of a block. Then in '95 I started wearing magnets in my shoes. After 6 months of wearing them, I started walking on my own. I've been in remission ever since. Hope things work out for the best!

MS is one of the hardest diseases to diagnose - it's often diagnosed only after other possibilities have been ruled out. One problem is that the symptoms vary a lot. However, loss of movement, fatigue and dizziness are all common. You can find out more about the symptoms < a href="http://www.mult-sclerosis.org/mssymptoms.html" target="blank">here. All the best.

I also have MS and, at first, looked like I was drunk when I walked. Now I use a walker, which I hate. Please tell me more about the magnets you used, and where I can purchase them. Thank you Terry

That does help. Unfortunately you're correct it is hard to diagnose and right now my doctors are not ready to diagnose this as MS. So far I haven't gotten a lot of feedback on what could be wrong. I am still doing a lot of tests. I have gotten from several doctors that it could be fibromyalgia. I am just not sure and can't do much right now but wait.Thanks.
