I hope maybe someone has heard of this happening before. For the last 3 days, my legs have been tingly/numb/burning. I can move, but it's like I have to cross country ski with my feet to get anywhere. I have fallen and gotten a concussion twice when this happens, and of course I can't drive. I have also noticed memory and concentration problems, like repeating myself and forgetting why I went somewhere. This has been happening for over a year, and along with my legs, my face, arm, and shoulder can go numb at any time, and last from 20 minutes to 5 days straight. I have had MRI's, EEGs, bloodwork, physical therapy, psychological testing, spinal taps, you name it. Basically, my doctors have told me it's like I have MS without having a positive test saying so. But because of no official diagnosis, I cannot be treated for something that "isn't there". This is severely frustrating because I can't drive, move around at work, go up stairs and take care of my 2 year old. Has anyone heard of anything like this?

Ps-MRI has revealed 2 brain lesions, not changed for 1.5 years
