I am sorry you are going thru all this. Welcome to the board. My symptoms that made me seek medical attention were left leg pain, numbness, squeezing feeling in my feet, and back pain. I could not stand for more that 5 minutes. It was terrible. Since diagnoses, the more i read, the more i believe that i have had it for many many years (as does my neurologist). 7 years ago, my eyes went crazy. Had double vision really bad. As i think back, i had symptoms in my early 20's. Sporadic numbness throughout my lowerbody that i was totally convinced was a piched nerve. I was afraid to go to the doctor, so i just let it go. Now in my early 40's, i have some residual disabilities, but nothing i can't handle. You'll be fine. It's better to find out is my point so you can start to feel better. I know its scarey, but honestly, it's a relief to just know and get on with treating whatever is goin on. As far as the deciding test, after what seemed like i had everyone, it was the MRI of the brain and the spinal tap. i hope this helps.
