I have been dealing with anxiety and depression since a young child. I'm 32 now and about a month ago my normal symtops I usually get changed. I use to feel stressed alot and depressed with alot of fatuge  mental and phyiscal,  with achey lower half when doing things like going up stairs. But in the last month or so things have changed. I can't seem me to sleep anymore without a sleeping pill. I started feeling nausea and vomitting . Motion sicknees it gets so bad that  at timesI can't not even watch tv. My vision (blurred) even with glasses on, a burning and sore feeling in eyes at times.  along with extreme fatgue and feeling like it was hard to talk almost drunk feeling.Just feeling realy dazed. Hard coming up with words. At times my body feels so drained and heavy like it is being weighed down. Hard to function altogether. Feel  like i bump into things alot or drop things ect.I started  getting numb feeling in my right jaw about a month ago and than it moved to my arm and back area started getting a numb tingling burning feeling in lower back and butt area. Now I have a tinging in my mouth that started about 3 weeks ago and does not seem to wanna go away along with the numbeness in my butt and numbeness that comes and goes on the right side of face..Also dirraha and always going pee.The dr. I thought that it might had been a tumour so they did an mri  of brain but nothing showed up. So I'm not sure what to think anymore. He run a bunch of blood work and the only thing that showed up was high prolactin. Now in about a week I'm going to  place called Lockwood in toronto which they will run a bunch of tests. I'm just don't know what to think anymore. Is this just all anxiety and depression or could what I have been going through over the last month may be a sign of something more seroius like m.s. or something else? I'm really scared.

Wow you have a lot on your plate.  I am very sorry!  Depression and anxiety are plenty to be dealing with.  It is totally unfair to load you up with more!  The good news is, you have a clean MRI.  That means you probably don't have MS.  Keep pestering those doctors though to figure this out.  You are always welcome to post here for support, questions or a chance to vent.  We also have a depression and an axiety board here at HealingWell.  Please post there as well.  You will meet very nice people that can give great support.

If you really think you might have MS, please try to get a spinal MRI.  I went undiagnosed for four years because my brain MRI was clean. I was finally diagnosed after a spinal MRI revealed lesions.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12).
