Hi I just need a bit of advice to calm my "im crazy" view
a few years ago I was tested for MS with an MRI but it was clear
but now I have recurring Doubts
  • I am shacking - can't hold hand out or hold cup without spilling it
  • my eye,cheek & lip Twitch 
  • im having double vision
  • headache
  • memory loss
  • mood issues - Angry
  • Aches & Pains
  • still worse after Heat or hot bath
  • Wobbly
  • Drop things

These are just a few But it really seems like MS , But why wouldn't it have shown up on the MRI ?

if Not then I wonder what, the specialists have always said that I don't have Typical Rheumatoid, oh you have fibromyalgia as well or this and that But Never a Positive answer

I guess my question is can the above be MS if so How do I diagnose it?

Your symptoms are ones that might be experienced with MS; but they could be caused by many other diseases/disorders. Most doctors won't diagnose MS unless lesions show up on an MRI. You could repeat the tests. It's not unheard of for lesions to show up after initial symptoms occur.

The tests that are often used to diagnose MS are: MRI of the brain and spine, evoked potentials, lumbar puncture, blood work and a neurological exam.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

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

BadDay, One possibility is Lyme or another infection. You don't have to remember being bitten by a tick and other vectors can carry the bacteria. Lyme is found in every state. Your symptoms sound like others on the Lyme forum. You can check it out. To get the most accurate testing, you have to have it done through Igenex Lab located in California. My husband's Intel doctor went through the process for him. My husband was diagnosed with ALS and I researched and discovered Lyme can mimic and maybe even propel many conditions. He tested positive and is slowly recovering. One of the top neurologists in our state had diagnosed him last summer and he had the symptoms since 2010. He was sent home to die. Autoimmune diseases such as MS, Parkinson's, and AlS are a few of them. You can also find an Lyme Literated Medical Doctor to be clinically diagnosed. Good luck.
