Hello to all,

Since My last posting, I have Finally got an appointment with the Movement Disorder Specialist.

I see him on the 22nd. Also since the last post, I have new symptoms, I have had a-lot of things happening. I had a Ct scan for my right pertrutriode saliva gland and neck, the whole left side of my face near my ear and cheek swelled like a huge ball. Well they found a 1cm nogale in my right upper juggler.
My Dr sent me to a Ear, Nose and Throat Dr. He said all was okay? but as I had mentioned in the past I have issues with my voice, well he diagnosed me with Spasmodic Dysphonia, he advised me to make sure and let the movement disorder Dr know this.

On Monday the 19th I was driving and then the right side of my cheek, around the eye etc. went numb.?
I have been having a-lot of issues with the right eye and Twitching?

Yesterday I had a Dr.Appoint. and when walking ( with my Drive walker ) I found that my feet were dragging, I have been having so many issues with my legs feeling so numb but yet tight/burning and oh so so weak. I have also noticed that my right foot is turning inward. My cardiologist asked me a few weeks ago, What was going on with my right foot? he noticed a foot drop. Is this normal for MS ??

Hi HollyAZ,

Cervical Dystonia(CD) is also known as Spasmodic Torticollis(ST). This does not mean MS. ST can happen to anyone. My Daughter was born with ST but does not have MS. She had Physical Therapy(PT) as an infant and had no other problems with the ST until she was a Sophomore in High School. She has found PT to be helpful as well as massage therapy. There can be triggers for ST such as stress/anxiety. Some with ST find sleeping in a certain position or using a certain pill to be helpful.

This website will give you some more information about CD/ST:

There are different types of tremors and various causes for someone to have tremors. Anxiety and depression can cause an awful lot of symptoms and mimics those seen in MS. If you are not being treated for the anxiety and depression please seek the help of a Mental Health Professional.
Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1985
PTSD diagnosed Feb 2004 (PTSD since age 2), Anxiety/Panic attacks secondary to PTSD.

Hello Snoopy,

I thank you for the information, I do not have any panic attacks, I'm probably the most relaxed person, I don't let things bother me. I'm aware of the condition I do a-lot of research, along with these DX I was also DX with Spasmodic dysphonia, I don't know if you have read my back ground of all my symptoms??

Hi HollyAZ,

Did you ask the Dr. what he thought was causing the diagnosis's you have received? Work with your Drs., have patience and hopefully one of your Drs. can figure it all out.

Yes I asked him, I mentioned that I have been doing a lot of research on all my dx's and that almost everything comes back to the MS, he said yes it is possible but it takes time, not to get discouraged . as to your post earlier, he has referred me to a speech therapist and also social worker who specializes in movement disorders. He has put me on ( trial ) of Benztropine for the tremors. if that does not help the propranolol and tizanidine for muscle spasms
