So, first time user, doctors still trying to figure out what is up, have you heard of MS with no pain or jitters ?

yes. what are you dealing with?
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

Not sure, was attacked and beat up, head and back, stress from the attack and other extrteme stress at that time, then acouple of weeks later got the worst Flu of my life, tingling in fingers started after the attack, now months later it has been a slow build to numbness of hands and dragging left foot. Because of my limited insurance, jumping thru the hoops for the clinic, still have not got MRI, schedualed for it next month. Just researching as much as I can.
It has been months dealing with doctors, they thought pinched nerve of C7 ? area, x-rays, showed an aged neck, small problems but nothing major, so waiting to get the MRI. Latest Doctor thinks the sucker punch from behind, black out, might of done something to the Brain stem of spine ?
I seem to match all the symptoms xcept for the jitters or shake. Reading as much as I can, positive attitude, healthy diet, exersize, doing it all...........

Sorry to say, it sounds like it's a possibility.

No pain for me (still none) but blurriness in my left eye (optic neuritis) dragging left foot and having to go for a pee twice as often as I was used to.

Glad to hear that you're feeling positive. Research high dose vitamin D3 (10,000 iU +) and add that to your regimen.

Good luck!
