I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but I'm 15 and my mum has MS, and I think there's a chance I could be showing symptoms, but because I have Dyspraxia which is poor brain development, using the symptoms page could possible lead me into thinking I have something I don't. Basically, about 2 months ago I had periods of numbness in my face, which lasted about 2 minutes each time over a period of 2 days, each mini numb attack would start with the sort of feeling when something sends a shiver down your spine in my face, and yesterday, after nothing for 2 months my face went numb, and then the numbness followed down like a wave into my arm, and now I'm pretty scared, I have memory problems, balance problems, coordination problems etc, but these can be put down to my Dyspraxia, also I've been getting a few muscle twitches, but that's probrably because I'm tired, and I don't want to jump to conclusions already, I was hoping someone could help me in this situation as I know having MS this young is definitely not a good thing if I do turn out to have it.

Thanks in advance,

Dan.

Edit: I also have breathing problems, like when I breathe in to my full capacity it isn't enough.

Edit 2: One more thing, I read about depression and fatigue on the symptoms page just now, and I have some of that too, sorry if I seem ignorant about this all, I don't want to annoy anyone here.

I'm sorry your feeling this way Danielle...Have you been seen by your physican yet? I think thats the best start to finding out why you feel so crummy. Hugs to you! Hope you get an answer.

Thank you for a prompt reply, the name is Daniel by the way. =)

No, I haven't seen a physician yet, I didn't want to worry my mother.

Hey Daniel

I hope u'r feeling better today. Don't worry about asking too many questions. That's what we're all here for, so u can't ask too many. I know u don't want to upset u'r mom or cause any undue alarm, but at u'r young age it may be the only way u can get medical attention. U should mention the symptoms u'r noticing to someone who can help u. U DO need to bring this to the attention of a med professional. Maybe that'll mean letting u'r mom in on it. As a mother, i can tell u that no matter what my own health is, my children come first. I want to know EVERYTHING is ok with them...and that gives me comfort. Being able to know they're ok or provide for the things they need should they be sick is what i'm here for...and i'm betting it's that way with u'r mom as well. Take care of u'rself and let us know how u'r doing and what u decide to do. I'll be watching for u'r posts.
