First off I don't have a diagnosis of MS, unless you count the people I have met over the years who have it and are convinced I have it too... which doesn't swing with the medical community. (: I have been told I have "many interesting symptoms to monitor" all of which get called coincidence and given their own individual unrelated diagnosis if the doc even writes it down at all. I have balance issues, vision problems, weakness in my arms and hands, bladder and bowel issues, fatigue, numbness, the newest are little or no taste or smell. My eyes are very sensitive to bright light and whenever I am outside I need to wear sunglasses. Have often short of breath. Sometimes my foot drags, on the right side. Occasionally my right knee just stops holding me up and I fall. I use a cane now. Inability to remember names, short term memory loss, stuttering, and ankles swelling. I also began having on-again/off-again unexplained eye pain in one (right) eye. Was tested for carpal tunnel, results showed mild carpal tunnel. Plus have fibromylagia. It's not like I want to have MS. And maybe I am just suffering late effects of the auto accidents. Would like to at least have something I can tell people where they will not think I am making it up... most can't believe I would be messed up from a car accident. MS fits but i bet so does lots of things so we just need to figure it out what. i don't know what the heck is going on -- i just want to be well-- what is wrong with me.
