I went to the doctor because I was having lower pack pain. He discovered "clonus" and sent me for a multitude of MRI's. Nothing showed up to explain the back pain, but 4 white spots were seen on the brain scan. A spinal tap was completed and it came back clear. This was 6 months ago. For the last year or so, I have been tripping over my feet and having trouble walking. My legs feel so weak. I can not run and my gait has changed tremendously. The muscles in my right thigh constantly hurt and my hips have begun to ache. My legs shake when I bend over to pick something up. It is difficult to rise from a sitting position and to begin walking. My neurologist says that it might be MS. Do these sound like the symptoms of MS? If so, is it moving quickly or is this how it intially strikes? I am a 42, white female from Virginia.
