Hi i have been sufering from many neurological probolems for a long time. I go through spells or attacks then they go away, but when they come back they are worse than ever. IT started out with just numbness and tingling a lot. The first major thing that happened was when my leg went paralyzed for a while. By the time i got to the hospital it was better, so the doctors did not take me seriously. I would suffer from this type of attacks then a few years ago i began to get new symptoms. I became so tired and exhausted. I lost strength to do normal things. I also began to get shooting and electrical pains down my neck, arms, legs, fingers and toes. Sometimes this would lock my finger and toes in place. Here is also where i started to get dizzy all the time. it still alternated in attacks. Then about a year ago is when my leg started twitching enough to make it kick. i went to the hospital they medicated me and sent me home. the next day it was still doing it so they admitted me and ran tests said that i must be depressed. i went to a therapist and was put on Zoloft. it was convient for them that my attack settled down then. but after a few months another attack came on. so tired again, dizzy, numb, tingly, electrical pains and new symptoms. My vision became blurry and i began loosing strength in my hands. i have no depth perception and my legs are so weak that i cant walk a straight line. i am uncoordinated with my hands, trying to grab something i see and it not being where i think it is, like over reaching. i was having trouble concentrating, and even had memory loss. the most recent visit to the hospital was for my left side of body going numb. i asked for a refferal for a new neurologist because the last one blew me off. i have had MRI done but nothing yet. can it be MS, maybe in early stage? help
