Hello everybody...
I m new here in the ms forum, I m 28 and I had my first baby in nov 2008, since his birth I have been experiencing anxiety, I had some trouble with anxiety in the past but I was doing good until I got pregnant, well the problem is that I also started having some crazy physical symptoms that are always changing and then some come back than go away than come back it is crazy!
Currently I m having trouble with dark spots in my eyes when I move them, I also have electric shocks in my left heel every time I bend forward and sometimes when I put my foot on the ground.
Since may I have experienced muscles spasms and twitches in my legs, arms, hands, feet, face, my fingers move up and down and to the sides and sometimes my toes too. I also have finger tremors that last for a few seconds.
i had an emg that was normal and I m waiting for a mri , I have seeing 3 neurologists the first thought it was anxiety but wanted rule out ms, the second said that it is probably anxiety but need to keep an eye and the one yesterday said that the symptoms match ms but because I m from Brazil and of portuguese and italian heritage the chances of being ms are low.
I m very scared, I dont want to read a lot about ms symptoms before I get a diagnoses because I probably will get all of them, but I would like to know if anyone had these symptoms and how to deal with them, right now I m in panic because I have a baby to take care with almost no suport and I havent being able to.

Sorry to hear what you are going through.  Hopefully your doctors are working hard and will be able to give you some answers soon.  If you believe that there is something going on physically and is not caused by anxiety you will have to be firm with the doctors.  It is possible that the anxiety is being caused by you having physical issues while trying to care for your baby.
An MRI should be helpful in indicating or ruling out MS.  You should try to get a brain and spine MRI, because sometimes lesions will not show up on the brain, but do show up on the spinal cord.
Your symptoms are kind of vague and could probably have any number of causes, so you may have to hang in there for a while until the doctors can sort things out.  Try to find someone to help out with your baby in the meantime-a family member, a friend, maybe someone from church?
I pray you find some answers soon.  God Bless.  

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