Hello everyone

This is the place to ask questions if you have symptoms that suggest MS, but aren't yet diagnosed.

Hello everyone

I am 31 year old male and over the last couple years I have been experiencing multiple symptoms. I guess I will discribe them as follow, but let me mention my doctor sent me to two neurologist with no important findings.

As of yesterday my memory loss, forgetfulness, and brain fog have proven increasingly worse. The blurry vision is a nightmere and my opthomologist continually tell me my eyes are fine. I also deal with my migrains, sometimes the brightness of the lights I can’t handle at all and this crawling feel/pressure I feel on my head.

I also am dealing with gait problems and especially freezing gait happens a lot when I’m walking outside of my home. I have panic attacks, depression, and serve anxiety. I feel heat radiating inside my body with no fever
And I assume must be low grade fever. I have dealt with numbness and tingling on my hands also my feet.

I find myself feeling like I have inside shakes or tremors in my body. I also have outside shakes in my hands, feet and my upper body but rarely. Also I feel fatigue constantly, and flu like symptoms without a cold. I have dizziness/vertigo everyday and my symptoms sometimes subside before coming back. Does this sound like MS to you ? I just need to know that I am not going crazy here because the doctors are not helping.

Welcome to ThisIsMS Lawrence,
Your symptoms sound like they could be due to a lot of things. What tests have your doctors done? What were the results?

Hi Lawrence86,
I have panic attacks, depression, and serve anxiety.


Do you take medication to treat your anxiety/panic and depression? Are you seeing a Psychotherapist? If not I would suggest seeing a Psychiatrist for medication and a Psychotherapist for Therapy (counseling). If you are taking medications it would be a good idea to discuss your symptoms with the prescribing Dr. to rule in/out possible side effects from the medication(s) causing any of your symptoms.

Mental health disorders can cause body wide physical symptoms, some of those symptoms can appear to be Neurological but is due to the mental health disorder and not a disease process. Taking care of your mental health would be a step in the right direction for decreasing or completely resolving many, if not all, of your symptoms.

let me mention my doctor sent me to two neurologist with no important findings.

This would be a good indication that you do not have Multiple Sclerosis.

hi and welcome L, lots goin on - sounds frustrating.
any bloodwork done? any referrals to specialists outside the neuros and opthalmologist?
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
