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

hi everyone im new to the board...ive been to my Dr. on 3 different occasions about things that are going on with me. My symptoms are tingling in the left arm,loss of balance,trouble swallowing food(not all the time)memory loss,weight loss,fatigue and tremors(only when im really tired) so on my 3rd visit to the Dr. she now wants me to see a Nuerologist and have a " Nerve Conduction Study done". All the research ive done points to MS. Im really nervous and could use some help understanding whats going on? Does is sound like MS to any of you?

Hi Reid I guess both of us are on the same boat.

Today I went o my neuropsychologist and took three hours worth of tests and he told me that it looks like I have ADD but then i told him what about my MRI. He had no idea that I had an MRI done ans so asked me to get a follow up on that right away. If Im not mistaken my follow up is on November 12.
I decided on such a lovely day to walk the eleven city blocks home and found my self criss crossing and going to the left when I wanted to go straight ahead aor to the right. i especially lost balance when someone passed by me quickly or if I looked a t ashop window and walked at the same time. seemed like I had to really focus on my sreps and even focusing I would lose balance or go a different direction. It was pretty scary

And yes this is a very saavy group:)

Got my results.
Doc phoned me at home
MRI is good.
Doctor still wants to see me in his office in November
wants to know why I am experiencing the overactive reflexes.
I was also diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency so he wants to know why.
Disappointed that I don't have a solid DX but appreciative that I wasn't ignored by the doc and he still wants to find out why I have the symptoms I have. I
n November, at his office, I will ask about MS
