  • Take a deep breath. Most of us imagine things that don't exist.My first question to you is, "why do you suspect MS"? Think about the following:Do you have tingling in any extremity?Have you experienced any transient double vision?How well do you process hot weather? Do you hate the summer?Does either foot drag when you are tired from walking/exercise?Do your "toes catch" (not clear the ground) when you walk?Does any extremity get weak when you are tired?Do you fall "without reason"?Do you walk out of your non-laced shoes?Don't be afraid to talk with your doctor if you suspect you might have MS. Wishing you well and thinking good thoughts for you.

  • Lisa,I'm interested too as I am having some mild MS like symptoms, but am being told that everything is normal neurologically. I'm not buying it, but don't know where to go from here!! ~~Angie~~ Angie, I have had numberous test done over the past ten years and I still, cant get a straight answer. Have you went to any of the Universities that specialize in MS. My problem is I have lessions but they are not enough to diagnos me. I have some type of eigth carinal nerve condution problem in my left ear. I have restless leg, insomnia, migraines, numbness, tingling through out my body, fatigue, trouble consentrating, forgetfullness and daily dizzy spells. I still cant get a straight answer. You have to pursue, for your own sanity. Otherwise they will make you feel like your nuts.Best of luck,Lisa

Bronxgirl,I used to think this was in my head, and thats what the doctors make you fell like. I have changed my entire life around to avoid any problems. Unfortunatley, they keep returning. This has been a ten year battle for me. Yes I do have numbness and tingling throught my body, but my face and legs are by biggest complaints there. I dont have double vision, but I have flashes of light from time to time. I love hot water and the summer, but I cant take it as musch as I did when I was younger. My right foot drags when I am tired. I never noticed on the toe thing. I become very weak when tired, or after a dizzy spell. I have fallen numerous times for no reason. Yes I have walked of non laced shoes. I have asked my doctor every question I can think of, still nothing pacific to retreive any major diagnosis. Did you read my story? I have listed some of my problems there. Thanks for the reply,Lisa
