My daughter is 15 years old.  She has been diagnosed with hemiplegic migraines, kidney stones, ovarian cyst, and now fibromyalgia.  When I read the list of symptoms of MS, she seems to have a majority of them.  Bladder issues (was not able to go to the restroom and had to go to the hospital - 1200 ccs drained), weakness in her body, trouble swallowing, spasms in her arms, hands, feet, legs, and to me it has happened in her back, numbness half of her body, tingling, ringing in her ears, eyes going every which direction, and extreme dizzines.  She gets extremely bad shooting pains in her back.  The other day she was in the middle of talking and dropped to the floor with chest pain that went down her arm.  The list goes on.  I know so many of these symptoms can be just what she was been diagnosed with from the doctors, but this is about the only listing I have looked at that all of her symptoms are listed on it.
She has had an MRI and no lesions were mentioned.  They did mention innercranial pressure.  Then the shift changed, and the next set of doctors were not told that by the doctors that were in the ER room previously.
Also, what type of doctor do you go to to get the diagnosis?
Thank you for your help.
God bless you.

It can take some a few months.  It can take others a few years.  She probably wont get a diagnosis with a clean MRI however.  You will want to see a neurologist.  Good luck.
