I have no diagnosis but have extreme fatigue every day even tho I sleep well at night. What are some of the symptoms you all have been getting especially at the start of your illness?
 
And can someone in their 50's have MS?

I was diagnosed in my early 40s. I'm 50 now. I have mild chronic vertigo, bad balance, nystagmus, permanent numbness in my lower legs and feet, and some fatigue issues. I am also very sensitive to heat.

These are my permanent, everyday symptoms.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

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

Hi there, i have not been diagnosed but have seen Neurologist and did go to see a 2nd fr another opinion, however i was some what 20 mins late and turned away after been directed and so forth lots of walking with planter fascitis and leg tiredness/weakness, numbness tingling, foot drop and twinges etc base of spine! so was a bit disappointed.

i used to beable to get in the hottest bath and used the hottest water to do the pots and then when i had an operation 3 yrs ago with hernia and nerves were entrapped in screws taken back to theatre 2wks later and had nerves severed, since that day my worst is the hug round ribs and back ! then vision 2months later, my legs would give from under neath me, however the legs i have experienced 24 yrs ago with pregnancy,
speech problems started stuttering then gradually got slower and slower to barely able to say a word! i was taken off one med and put on lyrica from this moment the speech started to get better but keeps coming back but not as bad, i get facial neuralgia, sinus trouble , i have severe migraines, i get foot drop which is a weird experience, i had to change to an automatic because a manual i would shake i would get weaker throughout the driving and then get out fall back onto the car, shake unable to walk properly ,
my neck went i had MRI it showed spinal cord root compression i have mod-large discs indenting, i have slight oesteophytes, degenerative disc disease, so in my mind answered the tingling and pain in both arms !
but i became tender in many places to touch could hit through roof, .anyway i have tons more so dont want to bore anyone!

my every day issues now are legs weakness, fatigue (one of th emajor probs) numbness very sensitive to heat it numbs me i can barely move! go into shade i come round, then go back out and it happens again, i come out in big red blotches one year looked like i had lurgy and this year lots of raised lumps! tinitus and that is getting louder!
