For the past 6 months (yes six months I know you dont have to tell me) or so, I've been having issues. I'm not trying to get a diagnosis but maybe someone can help me.

First off, my eyes are ALWAYS dry. Which is usually associated with a lot of tiredness. Sometimes I'm so tired I feel like I'm going to pass out, but its a weird euphoric floating nausea feeling. Vision seems to be okay but at night, early morning or really any low light settings. My vision can be a lil blurry or I feel like I'm straining my eyes. With the euphoric feeling I feel like sometimes I'm leaning backward or to the sides. I don't walk into things. I do get 2 seconds worth of vertigo when I get up from a chair or the bed. This symptom is rare and random. Sleep does seem to fix the issue. But may come back. Working seems to work it worse. I feel the worst when I'm at work. It seems worse with staring at a computer (I'm a computer tech).

As of recent, I've had pin prick sensations down my back and sometimes shoulders and arms. Only on my skin. Doesn't feel internal and its very random and rare. Sometimes, I'm fumbling getting words out or I'm say/type a word I didn't mean to. Like for example, I mean to say/type Lunch and I say Length. I'm going to the doctor sometime next week but I'm just nervous. Any words of wisdom? Sorry, if my thread is choppy and random.

Hi Mike,

As you said, we cannot diagnose you.  I would just present your symptoms to your doctor.  Tell him/her how long you have experienced these things.  I am not overwhelmed with your symptoms.  They don't seem very MS-ish.  Having things come and go and be random and rare is not typical for MS.

I would not mention that you have searched your symptoms on the internet and you think it might be MS.  That will get you the brush off pretty quick with most doctors.  Good luck and I hope you are feeling better soon.

I would make a list of the symptoms you have been having and take it to the office visit with you. Make sure you get through the whole list too. I even gave my dr the list to keep in my file
