Hey Cyborg Ninja
Well i haven't had any paralysis, but have heard from many here that they have. Maybe partial or full paralysis to a limb. In ms anything can happen. It could come and last a long time and then go away...or last a short time and go away...or not go away. I don't know about the few mins, but i suppose that's as possible as the other way as well. The weakness afterwards is something i can somewhat relate to. I had lots of numbness in the beginning and would end up really weak after it all came back. I'm sure others will be here to give u their insight on this and i'm looking forward to seeing what they all have to say. I do hope u'r feeling better and things will begin to be better for u.
It sounds to me like you need to get a complete workup, and get tested for vascular problems (maybe you're having small strokes?), systemic problems (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, can cause some of the problems you describe), infection somewhere in the central nervous system (again, a rheumatologist might discover that), even allergies (having lived in south Georgia, there are a TON of things, environmental things both manufactured and "natural" that one can be allergic to, in that part of the country!). As for Lyme Disease, I don't know the incidence rate in Florida, but you can't simply dismiss it by saying "no rashes" as there isn't always a rash, and sometimes a rash is easily dismissed. Given that you're still experiencing various strange symptoms or sensations, and it doesn't appear that you've had anything really ruled out...or in...a return to the doctor and a committment to a thorough check-up seems to be in order.
CyborgNinja: Have you had an MRI? An MRI will show anything unusual. I have 5 lesions (9 confirms MS ... according to neuro MD), but I also have several patches of periventricular leukomalacia (usually only in premature infants ... I was a preemie, but had no health problems). I have MS symptoms caused by the PVL, but they will not go into remission and I'm now considered progressive. I am again on steroids. There are numerous things that can cause your symptoms, so the best thing to do is get a calendar, write down the day and exactly how the symptoms presented themselves, and use it has a record for your MD. This is a slow road with many bumps, so patience is mandatory. The merck manual is a good reference and the info is available online. Look up MS, get a list of all possible conditions that mimic MS, and start checking off the list. Keep a record of your findings to take to your MD. Good luck!
Not MD, only in med field, and the above info is from only my experience.
