Hi everyone,
I have another couple of questions.  I am still feeling dizzy but today I had to keep looking down at my foot cause it felt like a bug was crawling on it.  Is this weird or what?
Also, I have stiff muscles in my legs more on the left.  Not to the point where it interferes with walking but for some reason massage helps but it hurts so bad to have anyone touch these tight, tight muscles.  They never seem to loosen up.  It is from around my hip to my knees and mostly on the outside.  does this sound like and ms symptom or something else to you?

Also  am I feeling so lousy because it has been so hot and humid?  I have tried to stay inside with the air on but still feel lousy but I did go outside today to try to weed the flowers. My muscles ached so so so bad when I was leaning over and even walking around and the fatigue just got to me and I had to come in after maybe 20 minutes.

ooooooh i so had this all last week and we were having a lot of ants in our house and I kept thinking it was an ant. But it was not. It is definitely a weird nerve missfiring but it is soooooo creeping me out. I am so afraid of all tihngs creepy crawly so it gives me the icks!! But yeah I think it is my MS and I think it could be related to the heat.

well, i finally got registered here and i probably wont know how to get back to see your answers. so will somebody email me to tell me how? Im not diagnosed but truly believe i have ms and have believed it for over 25 years.  when I was 23 i had a little numbe place on my left eye. just had a baby and they gave me an MRI. found something and told me it was a tumor and that i needed to get my affairs in order.  I freaked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when i got to the neuro , he told my husband that it had to come out. I refused. I went for a second opinion. He said that it was not a tumor , but a cyst and that it had b een there for ever. from conception.
So after my husband divorced me because he had an affair, because he could not deal with me dying.   I took my 2 babies and went on with life.  I went to age 33 before i started getting really tired and could not lift anything without bringing on numbness in my upper extremeties and a headache and blurred vision.  If i would set out it goes immed away. They did a LP at 23 y/o and found nothing along with every other test for ms. So just someone saying it i believe i have it.
no Dr. has ever dx with it  because i walk, talk, and work. I have an MRI every year to follow the cyst. Wouldnt they see something on that?  Im a nurse and have went over my symptoms until im sick.  Now if i lay down, when i wake up my left arm is dead, if i sit up it comes back immediatly.  i have twitches in muscles, weakness, dry eye, and when i lay down i have shocks in my neck that feels like current. If i fall to sleep with my head down in a chair  everything becomes numb , until i get up.  If i tilt my head to the left it goes dead.
Anyone else ahve positional numbess? 
Im sorry to post here when I have not been dx. but i am scared. I have 6 kids. from 25 to 3 and im really scared here.
Go to neuro next friday.

Hey Motherof6,

I am glad you found us.  You are welcome here.  You don't have to have a dx to ask for support and to support others.  That is what this place is all about.  You have gone a long time without answers.  I hope your neurology appointment sends you in the right direction.  Before you get to that appointment, try to write up all your symptoms along with a time line.  Tell the doctor what you have experienced and when.  I would not walk in and say, " I am just sure I have MS."  Doctors tend to think hypochondriasis if you do that.  There are many other diseases that can mimic MS.  Good luck and keep us posted as to how you are doing.

Ok, I'm seriously confused here (and that's so easy to do these days! turn )
Is WillyWee and Momof6 the same person? Just wondering ...
Nonetheless, follow Gretchen's advice... don't tell the neuro what you think, ask him what's wrong, tell him every little weird thing down to the weirdest embarasssing becos it matters and he'll know what's what. Get the tests, let him figure it out. Don't get PO'd when he's not sure, it's a monitoring game and MS will show itself eventually.
You know something's going on but stressing over it and worrying on it is only gonna increase it's worst effects and present you to the Docs as a nutcase instead of a sane patient seeking their medical expertise. They've got the degrees, we've got the internet. Let them earn their money. :-) That way the Insurances pay up, you get a DX and if they're a waste of time fire them and move on to the next one til you get the right answer.
That's been my philosophy for the last 15yrs of my journey... Now no doctor makes me feel like I'm a hypochondriac about my body or my symptoms or the disease... had the one who had in the past NOT done that, I'd be so much further ahead than I am now!
