hi all,im a 28 yr old woman and for the past year have been suffering with severe leg pain and weakness,somedays its that bad i cant get out of bed or walk.iv been to the doctors lots of times and was just given painkillers without no test,now the docs have started to do blood test and results came back with high inflammation markers so they want to repeat the test in two weeks.im also suffering with balance problems (but have done since age of 11 after having benign intercranial hypertension),im also suffering with severe fatigue,by around one o clock in the afternoon i cant keep myself awake and feel so weak.i am a mother to two children and obviously this can be adding to the fatigue but i feel so unwell every day. i have to take my painkillers before getting out of bed and have to wait an hour before i can move properly,i am starting to suffer with the shakes in right hand and numbness/loss of use.i am very worried and this is really gettin me down as its affecting my life and childrens every day,i just want some answers or advice,thanks x

I waited about 3-5 months to get my DX. He said the same thing basically "time will show if I need to do more tests or not." MS is such a difficult DX, Since no one has the exact same sickness, it is difficult to get a concrete DX. I was suprised that I got one with out a LP! A lot of the symptoms sound the same, but, they could be the same for another DX as well. Have you been to a Neurologist, (that's what I meant to put instead of Dr.) lol...
