Diagnosis Confusion

I was given a diagnosis of MS 10 years ago. There are 2 leisions on the brain and one on the spinal cord. These lesions over time, have not changed, moved, morphed etc. They have remained constant in size and placement.

I was taking Avonex for 8 years, and for the past 10 months, I have been on Copaxon.

My symptoms have consistently been changing and ranging from numbness which moves throughout the extremities, exhaustion, shakiness in the extremities, headaches, power loss in hands, and most recently a heat sensation in my left leg.

I took it upon myself to stop all MS medications at the beginning of this month. I'm not sure how wise that was but I just don't know if I have MS.

Any guidance you can provide would be gratefully received.

Thank you
