Hi joojoo51,

Welcome to thisisms, well a little from my story, i woke up one morning with tingling on one side of my body then it spreaded to both extremities, stomach area, my back, my private area, almost all part of my body under my shoulder. Then the symptoms added, i began to develop fatigue, weakness on one leg (heaviness). And now, i have bladder n bowel issue also problem with walking especially stiffness n unbalance. Two years later after my first symptoms, i got an MRI scan and they found many white spots in my brain. Never had any lumbar puncture though.

Anyway, i have friends who were diagnosed with MS and they had clear MRI scan though they have all the symptoms.

Hope u'll find the truth about your symptoms, never hope u have MS though.
All the best luck for u.

Regards,
Linda

Thank you for that wish these 3or 4 weeks until I get the results will hurry up so that I can hopefully find out wot this is.

Hi there!
I can't help you much with symptoms as I am new as well. My journey started with optic neuritis. A round of iv steroids has brought my sight back but I am waiting on MRI as well.

I go may 22 and get the results the following week. I was not anxious at all but as time goes on my positive nature is dwindling.

I have had periods of tingling hands/feet and numbness but I have always cracked it up to carpal tunnel. I have no experience to your extent. I hope it gets better for you.

Try taking a probiotic supplement. I've found them helpful. Take them on an empty stomach and don't eat for 20-30 minutes afterwards.
