smhair This is Janedoe12 can someone read my post dated 06/07/12
I am desperate for answers. I am positive I have MS. For the past 8 years varied symptoms. Tingling, numbness in hands, feeling hot, limbs look swollen, pain different parts of the body. Spasticity when walking, speech slurred. Frustration of not being able to be understood. Several MRIs show one stable glioma and recent has shown 2 grey areas in brain in boca region. T2 hypertense foci flair.
Why after all this time hasn't a neurologist picked it up. I also have blurred vision. Eyes are sometimes sore.
Could this be MS or something else?
Need help!!!

I read your other post. No one here can diagnose you. I am sorry. You do have some significant health issues! You seem to be doing everything right. You have been treating your disc issues. You have lots of tests and MRIs. I have no idea why you are getting no answers. What does the neurologist say about your seizures and other symptoms?? How do they exlain that? How does he explain your MRI? Ask him "what is causing the gray areas?". I'm sorry I can't really offer more help.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.
