Hi Everyone, I am new to this forum, so I would like to send all a gretbig HOWDY smurf ! Also please excuse typos, kinda tough today. Ok, so 2 years ago i started havig nubness in myfingers on the left hand. Within a moth i started havin severe pain up my arm. I ended up having my c5-6 disc removed and fused.  But prior to surgery i told my ortho that i was having weaknes in both armsand legs. sometimes its dificult to walk. My legs give out and I tired all the time. He was pretty dismissive. I had te surgery and itdid no good. I feel worse. After battling insurance ad beng refered to several dr.s I finally got an appt with a nuero for next week. Currently my symptoms consist of pain in my limbs (left side s the worst), weakness in limbs, numbness and tingling i hands and feet. My feet hurt,sometimes it feels like im steppig on nails. My hands (again lef beingthe worst) feel like fat sausages, so cumbesome and my left hnd curls up. I so tired. Somedays Ijust hv to lay down. I constanlyneed to strech my legs. Does this sound like MS? Wha questions shouls I ask the nuero.Sometimes the docs dont seem to be listening, like Im some hipocondriac. Imso frusrated. In need of advise please.
 
Thank You
A cry

Tell your neuro what you have told us.  Tell him/her what your symptoms are.  Try hard to NOT mention MS.  That tends to get you the "hypochondriac" diagnosis.  Your symptoms could certainly be MS, but they could be any number of things.  I hope you get some answers and relief soon.
 
Let us know how it goes.

Thank you very much. Yeah, I dont sugest anything to the Docs. Im just tired of going and re-explaining everything. And I hate watching them write stuff down. You just wonder what there thinking and writeing. It gets sooooo old. Thank you for replying, Im sure you answer this question all the time.

Yeah I do answer that question a lot but most have us have been there before.  I hope I was supportive and not sounding tired.  I do hope you get some answers.  That limbo land deal sucks.
