  • Have your doctor check you for Lymes disease- I had a cousin they told had MS for a year, only to find out it wasn't. Had all the symptoms of MS- numbness, problems with eyes, prickly feelings, trouble walking, etc....then to have them find Lymes with a blood test. Also my mom has MS, for 25 years now. I really hope you don't have it. Praying for you.

  • There is a Very strong link between diet soda's and artificial sweetners and MS symptoms.  Google it and be prepaired to be scared and shocked.

  • The comment on diet soda is definately interesting to me, that is one thing that I have changed in the past few months, should have known better than to try and switch to diet. I had recently stopped soda, with my sugar addiction, dropped some excess weight but started with occasional diet sodas. Thanks:) Will stop that.

    Lyme's has always been a consideration, I grew up in the NE and spent a lot of time outdoors, then hiking as a young adult. I know I have had tick bites. Several tests were Neg and finally one POS, but the physician I was seeing did not take it seriously and ordered another and it was NEG.

    I have a history of Bell's Palsy, meningoencephalitis and had a closed head injury, it all is so very complicated as I have different symptoms attributed to each individually.
