Ive been worried that the reason for all my symptoms is ms, random muscle spastitity for no reason that dosnt go away, severe pain, nerve damage and nerve palsy out of nowhere... im scared and no one in my family will take me seriously except the family members with ms. idk where to start... do i go to a dr and just ask for a spinal tap? or... first i ahd thought all these injuries were from work accidents, but lets be honest here... nerves dont just stop working and become damage for no reason... :/

You need to start by seeing a neurologist for a complete neurological exam. The doctor will check your reflexes and responses. If he sees evidence of nerve dysfunction then he may order an MRI. A brain MRI is the typical way to start looking for MS. Other tests may include a lumbar puncture, evoked potentials of extremities, hearing and vision, extensive blood work and a complete medical history.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

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