Could a consistent metallic/salty taste be MS?

Hi, I really appreciate this forum and would be grateful for any feedback from those of you who have been diagnosed with MS. I'm going in for an MRI this week for symptoms I have been having over the past 5 weeks or so.

I'm a nurse practitioner, and I think I have MS

I am writing this because I know how it feels to be on the outside of a diagnosis. First and foremost, I'd like to mention that I've worked in healthcare for 8 years.

Hi there,

Symptoms:
-Painful tingling all over my body for ~10 years
-Terrible balance (notorious among my friends)
-Urinary, gastro, and sexual difficulties (note re: gastro-- I have been ...

Looking for questions to ask my Neuro...

Hello,
