confused Hi, Im new here and have been reading all of the post's. I am looking for some feedbad as I think I have been experiencing symptom's of MS.
Two years ago was my first experiance, I felt terrible burning from my hip's going down both leg's which tingled and my muscles began to feel very weak almost like a jello feeling. I sat down because I knew my leg's would give out. That kept happening so I went to my Dr. She sent to to a back specialist. Nothing came of it other then narrowing of the faucet joints and a fracture on my spine, he said that would not cause the problem's that I am having and so he refered me to a neurologist. The neuro did an MRI and it came back clear he said I don't have MS. He prescribed me Neurotin to help for the burning etc. And that was it it help so I stopped taking it a few month's later.
Moving on...
Lately I've been experiencing brain zaps, some sort of electrical shocks and it disturbes my vision.
Last week I had a really bad one. I was just walking and got a bad zap in my head and started to see black with flashing colored circles. Them my leg's started to burn and tingle and they bacame weak. I then fell and hurt my knee, shoulder and finger's. I did not black out, but I could not see very well as all I say was blackness but I can feel my eye's moving funny like back and forth fast.
I went to the emery to get x rays as my knee hurt bad. Came back fine, just tore some ligiment's. The ER doc made a referal for me to go and see a Neuro on Feb 4.
That night I had the wort headache ever which I suffered for 3 day's. On the third day my head hurt so much I couldn't even stand up so I had to go back to the ER to get a shot of Demoral to help with the pain. It helped, I still have a dull headache though.
Now a week and a half later My legs feel very off like pin's and needles, and a very heavy feeling like someone has put cement on my feet. My muscles are very sore and painful. My vision is very blurry, and I feel very dizzy, I have pressure in the back of my skull near the neck.
For the past 3 years I have been getting sick alot with cold's, flu's, bowel problem's, Im alway's so tired I go to bet at 7:30 or 8:00pm as I just feel so drained. I have headaches all the time. The burning and tingeling in both my leg's, now the brain zap's. I have very bad memory trouble, can't remember much actually, ex: forgetting appointments and daily thing's. Or if I just poured myself a glass of pop I will put the bottle in the cupboard instead of the fridge not realizing.
Sorry for such a long post but I just want to know if this sound's like MS and if anyone experiences these symptom's.
Thanks for replying in advanced!confused

You need to see a neurologist. They will be able to confirm MS or not. So sorry that you are experiencing these symptoms. Ask for an MRI. Good luck
