Hey, guys all the tests run by my gp has come up empty and im going to see the nuero on the 24th.Very nervous because the symptoms seem to be getting worse by the week and im worried i might be in a progressive stage............due to my gender and age .....im 46.....my troubles began about 6 weeks ago when after working legs one fri. my r leg got a horrible charlie horse....lasted only minutes...didnt concern me...2. week 2 i notice that im urinating frequently 8-12 times a day....3. week 3 my calf muscles begin to hurt around my shin area.and are now getting worse feels like ive got a wt. tied to em...4..week 4 my hamstrings begin to cramp off and on but it never last ...5 week 5 my face feels numb and my lips twitch....still feels that way....on friday nite after work we went to the rodeo and my legs were dead and i felt like i was n a fog....dizzy......6 week  my left foot feels numb and my r foot feels like someone took a flame torch to it lasts about 20 min n gone...my right and left forearm is getting tight like my legs.....i wake up some mornings and i feel prickly........something going on with my body....when i found out that my aunt and cousin also had ms my stress level really went up...looking back at my life there has been some strange things ive experienced and never could answer...at age 15 i felt this sudden overwhelming feeling like i was about to faint, extreme fatigue,could nt even stand up..wobbly feeling..sfter a couple minutes it passed and went on with my business...this feeling has happened probably about 10-15 times in my life...more recent the last 5 yrs...also i can remember at least 5 times where i have felt like my chest will go completely numb from from elbow to elbow..........cant even feel my arms when it happened thought i was having a hrt attack went and had that ruled out...im thinking it might be a ms hug.....Have some questions for those more knwledgable then me: 1.how should i approach the nuero.2.should i demand a mri of brain and spinal cord 3.my tcells have historically been low on the normal range since in ms our tcells attack our myelin could that explain why its taken 30 yrs to finally begin to effect me..just a theory since i read somewhere that most people with ms have a high white blood cell count......4..are there any progressive ms patients who have found any alternative therapies that have worked for them......too help slow things done.......im about 90 percent sure that my resaults will show something......thx.........
