Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum as well as HW. for the past couple of years I have been dealing with loss of vision in my left eye, tingling in my shoulder with a burning sensation, numbness and tingling in both hands, and my legs and arms feel heavy.

A few years ago I had an MRI and a vision evoke test and everything came back negative and my primary doctor dismissed everything.

Now a year and half later my symptoms have continued with the added diarrhea sad and had to push my doctor to get some answers as everything is was just either stress or depression. I have finally started to see a neurologist and let me tell she is AMAZING. I have had MRI's, nerve test and also a shock therapy test and all my results have come back negative. I am now going to have a spinal tap because I want answers .

can someone give some input as I am tired of being tired and in pain.

Best wishes on the upcoming Lumbar Puncture (spinal tap). Did your Neurologist do MRIs of the brain and spine? Did you ever see an Ophthalmologist to evaluate/test your vision?

MS can be very difficult to diagnose. Many conditions, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, some medications and mental health disorders all cause similar symptoms as those seen in MS.
Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1985
PTSD diagnosed Feb 2004 (PTSD since age 2), Anxiety/Panic attacks secondary to PTSD.

Thank you.... I had an MRI of my brain, spine, neck and eyes because of my blurred vision.
I have seen an Opthamologist and nothing was found. I am being referred to another neurologist who specializes with the eyes, so let's see how that goes.
