Symptoms:
 
Weak left side, but I can lift 20lb weights and flex the arm/calf muscles
I don't know, I'm right dominant and was told the left side is naturally weak idk why I'm noticing this now
 
Balance is off- I'm getting over a sinus infection, but I feel like falling forward, however, I have done balance tests (standing on one leg/tiptoes) and did not fall over.
 
Jaw feels weak-I can smile and frown/spit tounge out
 
 
I'm just scared because I've had 2 ER visits and all this blood taken with everything coming back normal, but I'm just scared that this could be MS, please help.

Its way too early to tell. You will probably have to wait until you have numb patches or cant move a limb or worse vision problems. Then you will have to request a referral to see a neurologist and schedule an MRI.

I hope you dont have MS, but our generation might see better treatments than what previous generations had to work with. There are good support groups for it as well.

Dear Mroux:
 
Have you been dx'ed with MS by a neurologist?  Or are you self diagnosing?
 
The symptoms you descibe could be many things....
 
Call your state MS Society for a refferal to a MS specialist neuro....
 
But.....I really think you are getting way ahead of yourself....

From what he typed, it doesnt sound like he has been diagnosed with anything.

Sry, guys I owe it all to very tense muscles (I had to sit for quite awhile due to something else), inner ear fluid built up more on the one side (causes the off balance-ENT), and bad sleeping positions on the side where my jaw feels off.

I don't think anyone here is ever sad to hear that someone doesn't have MS :)
