I'm new in here & thought I might hear some of your symptoms. I'm currently being checked for partial seizures. In the past week I has a CT Scan, labs, MRI, EEG, & seen my neurologist who did a bunch of motors skills testing that I didn;t do so hot in, (kept leaning to the right & failed the heal to toe walk badly). He asked me to breath the way that they ask you to & sure enough I had what they are calling a "spell" untill I have a proper dx. I think my DR is wrong, I think it's much more then seizures or spells. I have many symptoms that point me towards MS. I read that DX can takes months or even years. I know I have some of the best Dr.s availiable to me. They are at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. But I think they might be hung up on their own egos & want to dismiss me (my case) ASAP.
