Hi everyone this is my first post on this site and it looked pretty informative. I started having some strange sypmtoms in March. My arms and part of my chest would tingle & get a burning sensation that would come and go. My legs get pains in them like RLS and I have had some pretty bad dizziness. All of these symptoms cme and go with no rhyme or reason. Recently my left eye has started to bother me, it is especially noticible when I am on the computer or I try to read. I get these gray fuzzy shadows in it and from time to time a black spot with flash in the left hand corner. My Dr. sent me for an MRI and they found 4-5 unspecified subcortical white matter lesions. My Dr. said I shouldnt worry about MS since whoever read my MRI did not say anything about MS in them but he is sending me to a neuroligist on the 29th. I am concerned about MS because my Aunt has it and she said that this is how hers started. I forgot to mention that I am 42 yrs old female, I dont know if that makes any difference or not. I just feel as if I am going crazy & my body is doing things for no good reason. Has anyone else had these symptoms and did you find out what they were? Thanks so much for letting me ramble. I look forward to hearing from someone:)
