I have been to five different doctors the past year. I havent gotten any answers from any of them. All that came up in all the testing is 8 bulging and hurniated discs, perminant nerve damage and spots in the brain. I got lymes disease ruled out.

I have no feeling on the outside. I am completely numb from head to toe but i feel pain on the inside. I get really bad shocks and at times it makes me colapse and sometimes even faint. I have fallen around 20 times. I get blurred vision on and off. tingling headaches from the shocks. I sometimes feel like someone is sitting on my chest and rib pain. I have symptoms of MS but the doctor that i went to said he dont think its MS. It is progressing worse.

it has been so frusterating. I am so tired at times. Does anyone have any input?

Hi Courtney,

I'm sorry you find yourself in limbo. That's not a fun place to be! Welcome to the board. I hope we can help.

I read on your other post that "spots" were found on your brain. Spots or lesions are a hallmark of MS. What did your doctor attribute these to?

I know you've been to a lot of doctors, but were any of those doctors MS neurologists? You need to see a specialist. If you do, bring all your medical reports and a copy of your MRI.

You also need to receive treatment for all those herniated discs!!! Those can be causing many of your symptoms.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

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

What testing have you had done?

As Gretchen said, If i were you I would be looking for a Neuro who specializes in MS.
