However, with all the stuff that keeps happening, I am starting to doubt it. But I am wondering what the heck it could be!

Every morning, I have nausea. Both of my feet feel tingly/numb. My right hand is starting to do it as well. But now I am having these weird sensations in my chest and at the bottom of my ribs. My blood pressure fluctuates. It hasnt gotten above 159 systolic though. But its always at least in the 120's. Now, according to my MRIs, they look like ones that a person with MS typically has. However, the rest of the tests were all negative. I am also having L'Hermitte's sign but I am starting to be able to feel it everywhere. I also have curvature of the spine happening as well. Back in November, the first sign of this stuff was both of my feet feeling numb and I also had constipation for 3 straight weeks. My feet feel pretty much the same, however, I am having frequent bowel movements now. I was also having trouble walking during that time. I have had days were my cognitive stuff was also being affected where I couldnt remember anything. Not even how to spell words. My appetite has also went. I've lost over 20 pounds in the last 3 months too. My smell and my taste is also gone funny.

I got my primary care physican telling me its Acute MS and the Neurologist saying its not bad at all. I dont know what is going on but I have done so much research on these medical problems that I am having that I dont think its MS but I cant figure out what it is.

Is there anyone on here that could give me any ideas here? What the heck is going on?!

  • I have MS. You seem to have additional symptions that I'm not familiar with. However, I do know that MS can affect the bowels as well as the bladder.I've recently learned that a Rheumatoid Arthristis doc is a good source when dealing with autoimmune illnesses.
