Do I have MS??? Please help :(

Postby Imscared » Thu Mar 01, 2012 7:57 pm

So I've been experiencing some symptoms for a while now. For a few years now I would get an itch some where on my body but not know where it is, my friends thought this sounded like the stupidest thing ever when i tol them, anyway I will find the itch and scratch it and when I do that part of my skin goes numb then i'll scratch some where else and after it will go numb, and i will do this over and over until my whole leg skin goes numb. The last year or so I've been getting alot itchier at night especially my legs. I hate the heat and I use to love it and never be itchy. I had my first panic attack when I was about 22 (I'm 25 now) and my Dr told me it was anxiety. Ever since then I have been dizzy all day and always thought it was the anxiety since my dr told me it was. I feel off balance sometimes like I'm walking and its only a little bit but I'll almost fall over sometimes when I bend to pick something up and the dizziness and off balance is getting worse and more constant. However! I don;t feel numbness through out the day, this doesn't effect my mobility at all! keep that in mind, the only time i feel numb is at night SOMETIMES! when i scratch, after i go numb i feel a euphoric type of feeling and it scares me. Over the last few years I find it really hard to concentrate on things and it feels like im on drugs when talking to somebody...as my eyes look all around the room and i am dizzy and lightheaded. My girlfriend says my pupils always dilate really BIG then really SMALL and it looks like im on drugs but im not on anything! I thought this may be all anxiety problems but i read a little on ms and it scared me. My vision has been getting a little blurry although i thought it was all in my head at first as well as the dizziness until the dizziness got worse. I find like my eyes are out of focus or something, its hard to explain. Also I forgot to mention but I had a few muscle spasm's here and there and didn't know what they were at first, it felt like something inside me kicking my skin or pushing or like a pulse which is originally what i thought it was (a pulse) and i never had this until the last couple of years but sometimes when im sleeping or just falling asleep I have little mini seizures very quickly and wake up and feel my self jolt as i come to a stop and my gf wonders whats going on. I have been very tired but also have depression and thought it might be because of that, but i have Absolutely no energy or will to do anything and something as simple as going to school for a 1/2 day tires me to the point i need a 4 hour nap.

I'm asking mainly did anyone on here who has MS feel the exact same way before they were diagnosed? Thank you

PS: you don't have to tell me to "go see my DR, i obviously will lol just wondering the above question ^^^^^ thanks again :(

Tensions and anxieties can result in so many unexplained phenomenon. I think u need to relax first. If u see a problem, obviously you need to see a doc lol 8) . Please see that apart from MS, there could so many other things which could result into what u have said. I think simple blood investigations for Vitamin B12 deficiency, D3, magnesium levels are necessary.
Wish u best of luck and health

I already knew that...thanks for your answer but no offense my question was "Did anyone else with MS on here feel these exact symtoms before being diagnosed?"


Don't think I'm not grateful for the help because I am but its like answering a question about what channel greys anatomy is on and you answer with "Bannana's are yellow"

not me..
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed

No. However, MS can affect just about any part of the CNS so symptoms can vary widely from one person to the next.

I hope you post what the conclusion of your doctor's visit is. How come you haven't had an MRI already? What if you have a brain tumor? Not to worry you, but I don't know why you are trying to get an exact match on here, seems like a waste of time. I've never heard of 2 MS people with the same symptoms.

You have some of the symptoms I have, but for the most part like "whyrwehere" said: its difficult to find 2 people with the same symptoms. It could be many different illnesses, its difficult but you have to go through the whole diagnosis to really find out. It doesn't hurt to start in one of the diets to see if your symptoms go away. A strict diet regemin helps me manage my symptoms, so it doesn't hurt for you to try. 8)

agree, heyray. from where i sit, a few of those symptoms are pinging on alarm bells for specific nutrients known to be off in ms patients.
