Which usually gets me in trouble...lol...but I have realized more things that have happened that could be related.  For instance, on New Years 06, I started to notice that I only had taste on one side of my tongue and it lasted for a couple of days then went away. 
Also, I have had a couple of times where it seems like I have a cotton ball in my left ear, it's really weird.  It scared me when it happened but I didn't think to even mention it to my doc.  And just recently, last week actually, I had this weird sensation down my left arm.  It was like muscle pain it was almost like when you hit your funny bone only a little painful...not too bad though.   And the soles of my feet hurt so bad when I woke up the other morning and I have found through out the day at work I have to completely stop what I am doing because I get so fatigued I can barely function...it usually lasts until I go to bed. Does any of this sound familiar to you guys?  I am going to call my doc next week and see if I can get in to see him and tell him these things as well.  Thanks for listening....I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their summer!

Hi Turtle,


I hope you are able to get an appointment with your doc this week. The severe fatigue and the pain issues you mentioned are similar to some of what I experience. The altered hearing and losing taste on one side of your tongue sound quite unsettling, and I’m glad they went away for you. Please do let us know how your doc appointment goes.


Here is some information on MS and pain:

Hi Turtle!
Yes it sounds totally familiar to me: BUT let me ask you something: have you been tested for Lyme Disease? I was first diagnosed with MS until a neuroinmonologist told me the symptoms made him think rather in Lyme (the big MS imitator) than in MS. Then the blood tests showed that i was really infected with the Lyme bacteria...
Many people goes misdiagnosed with MS, and I suggest you get Lyme tested, because those symptoms make me think more of Lyme. You can go to the Lyme forum in here and ask people where you can be properly tested in the US (i don't live in the US but i've read in the forum that the most reliable lab is Igenex in Ca.)
Good luck to you!
