I am a 26 year old female with no history of any medical problems at all (except my back goes out once in a while and I go to the chiropractor to fix it).

about 2 weeks ago, I woke up in the middle of the night and could not feel my legs. They were numb, cold, and tingling. I can move them fine and walk fine and have no balance issues. I went to the chiropractor thinking it was a pinched nerve. He adjusted my back but told me I probably have MS. It really scared me so I went to the ER right away. They refused to do an MRI (needed more evidence) and sent me home after drawing blood.

I went to my primary physician and he said the bloodwork was fine and he had no idea what I had. He put me on Prednisone and Nifedeprine, neither of which helped at all. I just returned to him today and he took me off of both and said it was pointless and maybe I should learn to live with this.

I made an appointment with a neurologist but that isn't for 2 more weeks and I'm very scared. Everyone just tells me I probably have MS and need to live with it. The women at work say it's probably a brain tumor and I'll die. I think they're gloating about it. But moving on...

I have numbness in my legs, tingling in my feet, and a cold left foot. I get joint pain too, very mild right now, even in my hands. My heart has been beating irregularly a bit and my blood pressure at the doctor's about 4 hours ago was 90/60, which he said was not a big deal but I feel a bit lightheaded.

What should I do? Any ideas? The doc did say my Vitamin D level was 15, which is supposed to be low, but he wasn't concerned and said it couldn't cause my symptoms.

Hi Jennashere
Try not to panic, when we get stressed it makes any condition worse. Of course you are scared!!
Those silly Women at work should know better. Everyone is scared of the unknown. Wait until you have youre MRI, that will tell you more. While I am no expert, I have been Diagnoised for a  year & happy to talk.
Try and stay possitive(easier said than done) I know!! Stay Strong, MS doesn't mean the end of the world.
Lots of Love

I went to my Dr. last week, he did a CBC and it was the first time, EVERYTHING came back good! Even my vitamin D was looking good. I don't really understand...
