I am 23 years old and pretty active- I teach dance. I had mono when I was 12 and since then I have had bouts of numbness- usually starts in my head and then travels down the body. I talked to a doctor about it and was told it was a side effect of mono- sometimes messes with the nerves. In the past couple years though I have become increasingly tired- I sleep 9-10 hours a night and still crave naps. Sometimes I am shaky or dizzy. What has alarmed me lately is that my muscles start shaking when I dance- at first I thought it was because I may not be exercising enough- but it keeps happening and now it is making me wonder. Should I see a doctor? Could something be wrong or do I just need to stop worrying?

  • Gotta see a Neurologist as soon as posible,especially if you`re a female.Explain him clearly every symptom.No need to worry until some tests are made

  • I am a female. What kind of tests should be run? What should they look for?

  • Is there a specific thing I am seeing them for? A type of neurologist to look for? What kind of tests would they run and what would they check for?

  • Instead of keeping asking questions over the internet,you`d better see a specialist(Neurologist).But if you insist on knowing my opinion,it`s the MS-like symptoms that worry me
