Signs possibly point to ms

What do you think?

I should insist the dr does more testing to rule out MS - 50.0%

Go another route with this, maybe it's mental (anxiety), allergies or maybe even dental problems - 0.0%

Insist the dr looks closer to other conditions like fibro, lupus, ect - 50.0%

Go to a family dr and do a blood panel to see if it's a vitamin deficiency issue - 0.0%

Go to a naturopath doc and see what they say, maybe it is "leaky gut" - 0.0%

Hello everyone, I am 30 and have been dealing with bizarre symptoms for the past three years. After my second C section in 2011 my body went down hill. I became very sick and very fast. It started with bad an anxiety attacks. Then to symptoms like: dizzy/lightheaded all the time, no energy always exhausted, muscles aches so bad on the back of my neck and whole back and a little in both fingers and hands. The worst though is the tingling sensation that started on one side of my back and is now on both sides and here and there on my face.
My dr ordered a MRI of my brain and spine. Tests of my brain were normal and only thing they found on my spine was that my spinal fluid tube thing was just a little enlarged. The dr says it's so minimal he couldn't even see what the radiologist saw. So of course he thinks I am crazy. All I know is this hard not knowing what is causing this to happen. Has anyone else had similar situations as me?

Also I am extremely forgetful/foggy headed- feels like I have a cloud in my head. Very hard to concentrate. I also have a lot of GI problems from: not digesting very well, GERD, I had a hernia in my tummy (removed now), IBS, endometriosis, PCOS, cystic lumps in my chest and last yr drs found little lesions (I forgot the term by used) in my lungs...

I forgot to mention that neurologist that found the small issue with my spinal fluid says usually that condition and cancer go hand in hand. But they saw no cancer in my brain or back area... Then I had my chest checked for cancer and he said I am very cystic. I am guessing that is thanks to my PCOS??
What for sure ways can they test for cancer in my body?

There are several ways to test for cancer. A petscan is one. Many blood tests will indicate that cancer may exist.

Could it be Lyme disease? You may want to post on that board as well. You have lots of disturbing symptoms to be sure! Those symptoms are common to many diseases. And with the clear MRIs it seems that MS should be ruled out at least for the time being.

Be assertive. Do what your doctor suggests to treat your symptoms. If you see no improvement, keep asking for help and treatment.

Best of luck to you. Keep us posted.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

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