Hello all, I posted this in the fibro forum too, thinking that is what is going on with me but now I am questioning, quite frankly as I told my husband last night wish the doctors would find out so I know what I am dealing with so I can be proactive.
First I am noticing I am light headed more often, it's worse when I don't sleep well. 
Secondly, I still have pain that moves around sharp shooting pains that lasts a few seconds.  Now I am having lots of muscle spasms in my hands and jerking in pinky finger.
When I lay down at night my body is doing something weird, don't know how to explain it, muscle twitch here and there.  quite annoying.  Still have tingling in hands and feet off and on.
Right hand is ice cold.
The fatigue has been so much better, I do have it at times but not like I use too.
How do i get the doctor to listen to me?   I missed my daughter's program last Sunday because I was so light headed and my heart wouldn't stop racing.
I was thinking fibromyalgia because of the pains that move around and because of the fatigue however now I am worried about MS......why do I look up the symptoms???   I have some but I haven't had the vision problems, dropping things or weakness mentioned as early symptoms.
I noticed yesterday when I was reading to my 5 year old, my tongue would not work right, kinda rolling the words together at times.
My appointment is next week same doctor who said I was depressed which I am not, last doctor I saw said I wasn't depressed........Do you have any of these symptoms?

All of your symptoms are quite vague; they could belong to many different diseases, disorders or health issues.  They way you start with ruling out or diagnosing MS is to see an neurologist and get a brain MRI.  Some neurologist that supect MS will also ask for a cervical spine and thorasic spine MRI. 
I am glad you posted this on the fibro board as well.  All your symptoms could be attributed to fibro as well.  I have even heard of slurred speech problems with that. 
Good luck.  I hope you feel better soon.
