earlier this year out of the blue i started getting sudden quick tremors/shivers (yknow the type when someone comments that someones walked over my grave?!) and at first for over a month i was getting 5-10 even more occurances of it

i didnt do anything about it as i thought nothing of it, but then in july my right thigh began with this awful dull deep ache and i assumed it was something to the coil i recently had fitted. this ache went on again for over a month then stopped and once a month comes back for a day or so.

THEN. in october i began waking up all hours of the night with a dead arm and throughout the day i would have a tingling pins and needles sensation and this hasnt gone away, ive had it almost two months now and i went to the doctor and he told me i had carpal tunnel syndrome. so he's put me on 75mg diclofenac i take one an hour before i go to sleep. im finding these arent working too well and as well as my hand getting progressivly worse each day, the pain in my thigh has come back and has spread right down to my ankle.

my friends dad suffers with MS and from what ive been telling my friend she said it sounded like what her dad has...this has really worried me. i was looking MS up but i didnt really understand all the medical jargon so ive no idea if im jumping too quickly to conclusion or not.

i did see that bad balance is a symptom of MS and mine has been horrific since i can remember!

arghhhh any ideas?
