With all that said, my wife is very insistent that I pursue this beyond the Meniere's Disease diagnosis. I'm convinced to see a neuro as soon as I can locate one and be seen...
But, I'd like comments from folks who know what MS is and what it is like... does this seem like possible MS?
Thanks for your input.
I'll bump up to the top of the page a thread where I copied from a book the basic symptoms of MS, and what a doctor looks for, to diagnose it.
I tried -- without success -- to cut and paste the thread here.. but it didn't work.. :(
I know you said you are going to try to see a neurologist. Please be aware that many neurologists do not know much about Lyme and Lyme can be misdiagnosed as many conditions including MS and Meniere's. My mother has Lyme and she had Meniere's. Your other symptoms sound like Lyme too.
Here's a link to a good list of symptoms:
No tick bite memory is required; the wrong test for Lyme can definitely give you a false negative, and Lyme is frequently curable, but you have to find the right doctor to diagnose it. I had to go to 9 different doctors before I was diagnosed. My response to the antibiotics is the ultimate proof. If you want more info, you can always post on the Lyme forum.
