Today I had an odd episode and am not sure whether it is unusual or not for someone with MS.
To make a long story short I was outside gardening and over did it. I had trouble walking to the house as my legs did not seem to want to work. Once inside I felt jittery as though my entire body was trembling but I couldn't see myself shaking at all.
I called my mother just to let someone know that I was feeling off (I was home alone) and had difficulty dialing the phone and also had trouble speaking. My sentences were broken and I couldn't focus or stop stuttering.
Has anyone experienced this?  Does it warrant a phone call to my Doctor or is it "normal" given the circumstances?

None of what you described would be considered normal.  If you had trouble dialing the phone or talking without stuttering, you should be definitely calling the doctor.  I am sure that was very frightening.  Good luck in your quest for answers.

Hi Capa,

I have episodes similar to what you had but not as severe.  I feel like I have low blood sugar and kind of shake inside.  You wouldn't know it to look at me.  I can function but it usually happens when I have done too much.  I just had this happen Sunday to Monday.  I even called my doctors assistant and her response was "I don't know if it is the MS"  She told me if the doctor gets the message and thinks it's important they will call back, otherwise they will see me in January at my next appointment.  That made me think I need a new doctor.  I love the doctor but hate the office staff.  I haven't even started the rebif and they are already blowing me off until January.  Definetly call your doctor because I have no clue if it is MS related either.  Is there anyone out there that gets that way too?
