Okay so here goes...I have had optic neuritis 2xs 1 MRI that was clean 4yrs ago.Here are my other symptoms.

left side tingling/numbness

urinary problems

extreme heat sensitivity

head aches

permanently dilated left pupil

memory problems

muscle twitching/pain

excessive sweating

joint pain

charlie horse in calf muscles

and it feels like I can't breath like something is squeezing me alot of the time.

I do have an app. with a neurologist but, not for another month :/ Could it be something other than MS?If so what??

You really need to see your neurologist and not speculate in one direction or another. No one here can tell u if u have MS, nor should could be low could be just that simple....there are a battary of things that can cause what you are having....
Now u do have a variety of symptoms, and it is good that you are able to identify with them, as your neurpologist is really going to need to know all that you just said here.... is it MS.....there are symptoms that are similar, but again it mimicks so many other things that will cause u the same...
So until u hear for certain that u do have MS, lets just say no for now, and hope and pray for the very best.
And bottom line if it is MS, it is not the end of the world, it is just a new begiining of a new adventure in your life.
Let us know what happens

Have a great day
