If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Does this sound like MS?

Postby froggygirl23 » Fri Aug 11, 2006 9:19 am

any ideas to throw out there would be helpful.
Doctors seen: family doctor (once) neurologist (twice) and internal medicine (once)

Symtoms: All the time dizziness, (for the past 2 1/2 months)
weakness all over.
Weakness in hands and feet that comes and goes. Tingling in fingers.
Sweating for no reason.
Swallowing trouble (clearing throat alot after eating meals & feels like there is something in the throat all the time),
restless legs syndrome symptoms,
numbness has had two bouts in right side of face/head, and some more numbness in face to a lesser degree.
Also is tired often, doesn't sleep or eat well, has a physically demanding full time job, has been off work for a month with no improvement.
Has has memory problems also for about 3 months or so.
Feels like he's in a fog
He stumbles frequently

THE dizziness and weakness is the major problems.

Tests done: MRI normal
ECG normal except bpm was 104,
2 blood tests, (first one had high monocytes and low white blood count, second test a month later the wbc was in normal range, but had slightly elevated liver ensyme alt was 74 and high protein.
Had a nerve conduction test also, which was normal...

Does this sound like it could be MS? His first doctor told him it did, but after one clear MRI everyone quit talking about it. The internal medicine doctor said she felt like he caught something viral and that he should be getting over it any day, and to come back in two weeks if he's still having trouble. :( He's still not better and it's been almost two weeks.

Thank you for any help and for reading this.
