I have been myiopic since I was roughly 10 years old. Ever since my first visit they have said my left eye is slightly worse(more blurry) than my right. I am now 18 and this worries me. It's not a huge difference but it's there. Could it be caused by MS? I also have had a muscle fatigue in my quadriceps when I exercise for about 15 months. It hasn't gotten any worse and it doesn't bother me when I am not exercising strenuously. I also tend to overheat easily while inside(oddly enough, outside heat doesn't really bother me) and my whole body starts to itch and my face starts to feel like it's buzzing. I saw my doctor recently and he gave me a complete physical, said I was fine but I didn't mention my MS fear. Some bloodwork and a thyroid exam revealed a very mild form of thyroiditis, he told me it probably wasn't even causing any symptoms.

I don't know but I can't quit worrying about MS. I also have bad balance and poor coordination but my whole family is this way and I have always had problems with running into things and catching small objects since I was a very small boy so I am not worried about those. I also live near New Orleans, Louisiana, a reportedly low-risk area for MS but I can't stop worrying!
