Been suffering for 15 years, is this MS?

I really need some advice, as I can't continue suffering the way I have been (sorry if I double post, but something seemed to go wrong with my first post). My symptoms started back in high school with muscle stiffness, headaches and blurry vision. The neurologist I was seeing said that I had TMJ pushing on nerves and my stiffness was unrelated and probably arthritis. The stiffness was dx'd as Ankylosing Spondylitis, but after several ...

Walking and Spasticity

Hey guys. I am undiagnosed but my doctor is almost positive I have MS. I have been unable to walk since Monday. It's getting better and I've been able to walk a few steps with some supervision, but if I do my legs get extremely tight and I have BAD spasms. I was prescribed Baclofen for the spasticity. 10 mg isn't enough and 20 mgs knocks me out (fatigue is awful this week). Even my ...

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome/CCSVI?

Hi everyone,

I was diagnosed last week with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome; however, my doctor tells me that all my other symptoms cannot be caused by TOS. These include leg numbness, tingling, twitching legs, abdomen, and feet (very small...only I notice). Also, in a vascular test, it was noticed that my feet were completely "flat" as far as getting blood to them...there is NO blood getting to my toes! I even get these lesions on my ...


Why am I itching and dizzy again?
