Help, Do I have MS

Postby leshill » Mon Jun 11, 2012 6:06 am

Over the past couple of years I have been having problems with my legs and arms in that if I try and do anything which involves using strength I find that my arms or legs really hurt and I have to stop and rest for a couple of days. I have also been having vision problems in that my vision goes blurred and last for a few hours. I also have burning feeling on the side of my face and I also get the feeling that things are crawling up the side of my face when there is nothing there.

My doctor does not have a clue what's going on and things just seem to be going from bad to worse. I'm now finding I an forgetting things even if they were told me just a few minutes before and I am constantly tired and fell like I have no energy. I suffer from back pains but to be honest I don't think a day goes by when I don't have either back pain or neck pain of some sort.

I often get tingling in my fingers and also in my legs and of late I've started to come over a bit clumsy having knocked things over when trying to use my hands. My doctor first thought the loss of strength in my arms was due to tennis elbow and sent me for Topaz treatment which has not made one bit of difference. I've also notice that I find it difficult to walk in a straight line and at time my legs seem to buckle under before I regain their use which tends to last for only a couple of seconds.

I've noticed I find it difficult to concentrate and of late I've started to get a bid moody and I just don't know why this is.

hi les welcome to the forum. i can't say if you have ms, but i can say that it's possible your eye trouble and forgetfulness have links to zinc nutrition, and your muscle and bone pain issues could have links to magnesium and vit d3 levels. these are all nutrients that are commonly found to be low in ms patients. if you think nutrition could be part of your picture, i invite you to read through some of my signature links. nutrition isn't ms specific so you can work on it without having a dx yet.
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
