I have noticed in the last few weeks that I have developed blisters on the outside edge of the left foot.My balance has been getting much worse.I tend to lean to the left and then step my right foot over to catch myself.
Also I am having trouble speaking.Sometimes worse than others.But I feel like I have a stuttering problem at times.I will work on getting out a word like someone with a speech impairment.And this wave of intense fatigue gets worse.
I was checked for MS atleast 5 years ago and at that time I had vertigo,bell's palsey,headaches and very impaired vision.
But the one thing that has made me think about this again are these blisters and calluses on the edge of my left foot and the big toe of my right foot.
What do you think?Time for another neuro. exam?
It could be just fatigue I have a very seriously ill daughter I am taking care of that has long battle ahead of her.I could just be tired or stressed.Part of me wants to get this checked but part of me wants to put it out of my mind cause if I get sick who will take care of my daughter?
Thanks for the help,

I think you really know the answer to your question. Yes, it's time for a neuro exam, and a GOOD time (if there ever is such a thing), when you're having significant difficulty walking, and have several other symptoms, too.  It's not a matter of "if I get sick" ARE sick, and need to be tended to.  Indeed you won't be of much help to your daughter if you cannot walk.


I'm sorry you're having these difficulties!
