You do have a very long post! You might delete the other post if you get a chance. That way the server isn't all tied up with a post that is a duplicate.
Ok to attempt to answer your many questions! ;)
Yes; anxiety can cause many many of your symptoms. You are right on with the ones you mentioned; those are all things that can be caused by anxiety.
Yes, I have caught myself staring at things....I call it slipping into la la land. I think people tend to do this when overwhelmed ...but just my guess.
Nothing reeks of MS. MS shares so many symptoms with other diseases. MS is really hard to diagnose! You certainly do have some MS symptoms but many people do that end up not having MS.
about 90 percent of people with MS show the oligoclonal bands that indicate MS. So you could still have MS but it seems like very good news that you don't have the O-bands.
Did anyone tell you that migraines can cause lesions? If they didn't, they should have! Google that.
I loved your honesty. I cracked up about
your pessimism. I am glad you are trying to work on that! Good for you! You are always welcome to post your questions here. I am glad you did. We have other "limo-landers" here. Best of luck to you! Keep us posted.

I have no lesions on my soul and so I will live with no limits.
