Hello all,
I have had MS symptoms for 10 years, ruled out Lupus and just about everything else. Based on symptom tracking, etc., it looks like the next time I see my Neurologist we will be pursuing a Dx of MS.

In the past year the noise in my ears, pain, stiff muscles and joints, numbness, vertigo and weakness have been getting pretty bad. I'm going back to see my Neurologist in 1 month, sooner if they can fit me. I'm worried about how much worse things could get in the next month before I see her.

I know rest would be advisable but I don't get much between a noisy neighbor and terrible financial issues.

My questions...
1. How much difference can one month make under stress, without treatment?
2. Can anyone recommend anything that may help slow the progress of the symptoms until I see my Neurologist?

If you are having an "attack" of MS, one month can be major and life-changing.

You need to get some MRI's to seriously pursue the dx of MS. Forget any suggestion of a spinal tap.

Good luck.
