Hi everyone - Trying to figure out what's wrong with me.  Does anyone have the same aches & pains?
 
I have or had the following symptoms:
Eye pain - sharp pain in back of my eye, jerky eye movements (back and forth) and blurriness. However, no colour change or double vision
Face - sharp throbbing pain in my cheek down to my jaw only on one side of my face, which went away after about 3-4 days
Arm - sharp stabbing pain in right arm from the elbow up to shoulder for about 2 weeks.  Neither Tylenol or Advil worked on the pain.
Legs - numbness in left leg, feeling of legs being cold all the time
 
My body feels tired and achy all of the time.  As well, I still get sharp shooting random pains in my arms and legs.
 
I've had an x-ray, which ruled out any pinched nerves.  I also had an MRI to which my doctor said was inconclusive - apparently, they "think" they may have seen some lessions, but not confident enough to confirm 100%. I have an EMG scheduled in July and have a consult with a neuro at the MS clinic on the 20th of May.
 
I'm going crazy wondering what's wrong with me.  I've never felt like this in my life.  I'm typically full of energy and I'm only 39.

I'm glad you have an appointment with an MS specialist. You have a lot of symptoms that need to be addressed. Be sure to get copies of all your tests and MRI's including the reports that to with them. You need to have those.

Keep us posted. I'd love to hear the results of your dr visit on the 20th.

The neurologist at the MS clinic said that I do have small lesions but not in the typical location as those with MS. He referred me for a lumbar puncture & I also did a blood test. He advised that because of my symptoms as well as family history (cousin with MS), I most likely have the onset of MS.

Does anyone have MS without lesions?

I was diagnosed with just 2 lesions. A 3rd was found upon a second opinion. I have heard of people getting a diagnosis without lesions, but I don't know anyone personally.
