  • Having multiple symptoms like this is not usually how MS presents. If that diagnosis is your concern, mention it to your primary doctor.

  • i agree with the second response. some of your symptoms may be just some pinched nerves. I don't know why you think you should see a gyn dr. as none of this seems to indicate a gyn problem. Personally a general dr. would seem more likely. He/she could think determine which dr. to send you to.

  • I don't think it's gyne related at all. Are you on any antidepressants or other drugs??? Sounds like withdrawl from a prescription. But, yeh if it continues see your GP. Let us know what it is.

  • See a neuro.....MRI and Spinal Test could determine Yes or No. You are not a hypochondriac....trust me. Listen to your body. I probably had some of these symptoms early on and never diagnosed until it hit me like a ton of bricks. I am now on permanent disability. So find out! Good luck and God Bless.

  • Any or all of these are symptoms I have had. However, one person may have only one symptom and be DX'd MS and like me there were several on the onset. My MS has been very progressive and have never gone into remission. The neuro thinks my daughter may have it also at 22. SHe has done all testing with exception to Spinal. She works and goes to school so is timid about the spinal. I was down more than a week with severe pain from the spinal. Again, everybody is different. Just do the test and clear your mind of what is bothering you. If you think you have something you will convince yourself you do without the proper DX. I never had the chance to wonder what was happening...it hit really hard. And, I didn't even know what Multiple Sclerosis was. I have several friends from High school who have it and continue to find about more as time passes. Pretty scary. I wish you all the best. K

  • for the original post: I have had many of your symptoms and am now going through tests. I recommend you seeing a neurologist. It could be many different things, but many people with MS have mild symptoms at first. The tingling sensations started with me, and then I had pain in my right eye. I have had weakness and fatigue. I hope I do not have ms, but I think it is worth your while to see someone. It does not hurt to hear you have nothing wrong, but if something is really happening, it would hurt to do nothing...

  • The only way to know for sure is to get tests done, MRI etc. I was diagnosed 2 years ago and only symptoms are numbness / tingles in hands.Each case of MS is different. My advice see a professional and don't listen to all the horror stories you hear or read. MS can be managable and in most cases is.DM Australia
