I am a 26 year old female with a family history of MS. For the last 8 months I have experienced some possible signs and symptoms of MS. The doctor thought it was a possibility so he persued it, but I had a lot of blood work done, some audiology testing and a brain MRI, all which are normal according to the doctor.
My s/s include:
Dizziness/ vertigo
Loss of balance (I stagger like a drunk, but I don't drink!) and decreased coordination especially when it's something that requires small/fine motor skills and strength in my hands
I drop things
Twitches of the arms and legs when seated
Mood swings
Sharp stabbing, and achy pains, intermittently throughout the body with no other explanation- including my head.

I am just at a crossroads and I would really appreciate any ideas. I have been looking into possible B12 deficiency as well.
