I am unsure where to start but going to just go.. I have been going to the dr for over a year and still no sure dig. I dont know what else to do. The only test that i have not had has been a tap. I have had normal blood test and a lil high blood test that my primary dr seems to be leaning towards r.a. but my nero leans towards m.s. i have symptoms of leg-feet numb/tingles arms face also. Major headachs, fatigue, neck-back pain, popping joints, nose bleeds, not sleeping well, no energy, eyes hurt often. I know my mri of spine did show buldging discs. Also have this skin isuues when i get done with work and begin to relax at all even 5 mins after my skin feels like a crawling issue. Like hair is moving or skin itching. I feel like i dont know what to do or ask to do next. I am only 28 and want to figure out why i am going thru this. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.. I just dont know what to do!

Have you had a brain MRI? What is making your Neurologist lean toward MS? Without lesions showing up on an MRI, most doctors won't consider MS. Have you considered Lyme disease? Many of your symptoms are consistent with a Lyme infection.

Does your numbness and tingling come and go? All tests so far are normal?

You may want to discuss the bulging discs when you see your Dr. with the possibility of a referral to a Neurosurgeon for an evaluation. Bulging discs can cause Neurological symptoms.

I did have the mri done of the brain. Wiyh and without dye. He said that there were spots he was interested in on the brain that he wanted spinal tap and bone marrow test done. At this time my health ins co switched me to hmo which his office did not take. My pcp is working on me a new nero surg and neurologist. He did tell me to not go to chiropractor untill he said. Not sure on wjy but he was very conaistant on that and not having surg injections for some reason. M.s. runs in my family and he wants to make sure it was not it. I did find out that my blood teat for arthritis last week came back ok. I see my pcp tuesday and have some questions that his nurse could not answer over the phone? Why not sure... If anyone has suggested questions i might need to ask please let me know... Yes the numbness comes and goes all thru the day and night.. Sometimes right side sometimes left other both sides at same time... I did have all the cancer screenings to rule out that as well and they came back ok only thing the hematologist could say was i had mycrotic anemia. (sorry if not spelled right) What i gathered from him was white blood cells were over enlarged... P.s. he was not alot of help to me, used big words and made me feel stupid when i asked any questions... Not much info on those visits and will be seeing a new one soon....

Thanks for everyones help.....
