Hi guys I am back, and have a few questions. My MRI (NO contrast) of head, mid and lower spine came back clear as did my nerve study. I asked my dr if we should have done an MRI wout contrast he said no, that they only do they when they see lesions and that lesions do show up without contrast if there are any---I have been told this several times. Well, then I asked him to do my C spine, so I get that done Monday. If that comes back clear he said if I want we can do a LP but that if the LP shows swelling he cannot dx me with MS based off that without lesios--I guess whats the point other than to upset me more...
So I have a question re MS. Do MS pains move around quickly? My pain started in my ankle one day, it was a pulsating pain that I thought I twisted my ankle, the next day it was fine. The day after it was my other foot, toes included it felt like it was being crushed-1 hr later it was fine. Then the next day it was back to my left ankle, just a couple jabs of pain to it. Then it was my fingers (or one), spine, etc.. It like I woke up one day and had this pain that started to jump around all over my body at different parts of the day. I noticed at the onset EXTREME joint cracking, still have that too. Also of course my feet buzz or vibrate from time to time. Now the most scary is that I get non stop muscle twitches everyday for a month. I have also felt I have been bumping into things more.... I have had all my vitamins aside from B6 checked, loads of other testst too...
My question is does MS pain sound like mine? I have been so depressed with the what ifs lately, I go from thinking a tumor to ALS to MS, and its just hard not knowing. My drs say may be stress as it all started after my dad got sick but I dont think stress can cause nerve type issues or joint crakcing everywhere.
Any feedback (or reassurance!) would be great.
