Hi everyone, thankful to be here. I have not yet been labeled yet, going into my 10th yr. Carry so many symptoms . past 8 months have been a nightmare. .going for another Mr I in a.m. tomorrow. My question today is, for the past week I am suffering with electric shocks down my spine and legs, mostly at night..and also I am so worried about my brain racing, and stupid thoughts popping randomly driving me crazy. I have problems with anxiety. .take 3mg of clonazapam daily..so along with numerous symptoms..I hate this. This Mr I will be my 4th. .had failed lumbar. .no fluid could be retrieved. .

Thanks in advance. .glad to be here...I feel so lost..now maybe being here will bring me some peace of mind.

Hi Karen,

I'm sorry you find yourself looking for answers. That is a scary place! You mentioned that you have had a couple of MRIs. Did those indicate anything?

The hallmark of MS is brain and spine lesions. Most likely, you will only get an MS diagnosis if you have lesions on your brain and or spinal cord.

Google "Lerhmitte's symdrome." It's an electrical shock sensation or buzzing (not typically painful; more just odd) that sometimes occurs with MS patients who have spinal lesions. I had this once for about 3 months when I developed a spinal lesions.

Your symptoms could be from MS, but MS shares symptoms with many diseases. Anxiety could be causing many or all of your symptoms. Chronic anxiety can be serious and debilitating. I'm very sorry you are suffering.

Once you have the results of your most recent MRI, I suggest you make an appointment to see an MS specialist neurlogist.

Keep us posted!
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

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

Forgive Me for not checking back sooner. ..Thanks Gretchen 1 for your feedback, and caring. My mright was different this time ..more thorough. .on my brain..starting with first set of images. .then an IV with the dye.

I will knowledge myself on LS....It's hard to imagine my anxiety could do this..I know although possible. .it would definitely be a blessing.

I will have follow up with my M.M Dr. no matter the outcome of my results.
Once again thanks so much for your help and kindness, will keep you posted.

Blessings - Karen
