Hi Grace, and welcome to the board. It sounds like you have a lot going on, and while many of the issues you describe can be present with MS, there are a lot of other diseases that mimic MS as well, including Fibro. Unfortunately we can’t tell you whether you have MS or not, and can only encourage you to pursue this further with your doctor, as you have a lot of new symptoms which seem to warrant checking in with your gp at a minimum. I’m so sorry the insurance issue is standing in your way, but is it possible to ask your gp if he/she now believes a referral is in order? Your doctor is in a better position to judge whether you should spend that money on a neuro. You’re welcome to stick around and ask any questions…this is a great place to come for advice and support.
