  • Go see a neuro and get all the proper test to rule this out. There are no 2 people with the same symptoms but what you are saying sounds like it to me. I wish you the best!

  • Hello,Your symtoms sound very much like mine, and I was recently diagnosed with MS. My blood tests were normal too but the problem is that if it is mutiple sclerosis, basic blood work will not likely reveal MS. The best diagnostic tests to confirm MS are MRI's of your cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine and brain. Also a test called a visual evoked potential and a spinal tap. You should go to a neurologist who specializes in MS and get these tests done. I was told for 10 years that I had fibromyalgia and believe me, there are numerous incompetent physicians. Many blow you off and you begin to think it is all in your head. Many physicians have no idea what to call the symptoms, so they tell you that it is fibromyalgia. Don't believe it! Go to a university hospital and ask for the chief neurologist and make sure he specializes in MS. Do your homework too - read about this disease as much as you can so that you can ask the right questions. My prayers are with anyone out there who has been suffering because of misdiagnosis. Don't give up until you get the answers you want.

  • Are you consuming any Diet Sodas/sugar free gum/nutrasweet?All your symptoms could be related to Aspartame poisoning from these products.
