Hello everyone, again I am 21 and female, Im not sure why i chose my name, but I have been having some ongoing symptoms of fatigue, weakness, and a hard time concentrating on and off for three years. Lately sometimes when Im driving I feel like the vehicle is tilted and so I have to struggle a little to drive. Also, the steering wheel will get a little heavy for just one hand once in a while. I havent been diagnosed with ms, but my doctor suspects it so I am waiting to see my neurologist again. For the past week, Ive been getting a pain in my left eye. Its not blurry but it feels like I have soemthing in it. But on the outside it looks fine. Its not red or puffy. Today, I started to get the same feeling in my right eye, but just barely. I was wondering if this is a symptom of ms or if it is something else that I should get checked out. I was told to wait tol see the neurologist, but i really dont like him. a year ago he told me i dont have ms and instaed might have restless leg syndrome. becasue i work fulltime and go to school fulltime, i asked him if there was anything he could prescribe to help me focus until he could find what was wrong with me, and he said "unfortunately there isnt a drug that can make someone a better student". so, yea  i dont like him but anyway, my question was the eye thing. I just got sidetracked. : )

You may be experiencing optic neuritis, it is a symptom of MS.  You need to go to an opthomologist and get your eyes checked.  Also, you probably don't need to be driving if you are having trouble with those unusual things when driving.  Take care and keep us posted! :-)
