I'm ready to give up on doctors!

At least the ones near me, there has to be better out there. I was diagnosed in 1996, after 15+ years of being tretd like a hypochondriac. Thank goodness for a college, a doctor whose mother had MS. She was the only reason an MRI was done. But maybe I shouldn't be thankful, every medicine I have been tried on has sent me further downhill. Seems faster than ever now that I tried tecfidera. Stopped taking it just today. Having to clean to much hair out of the sink and the nausea was keeping me in bed more than out of it. I think they are just trying any chemical combination that doesn't kill you first but now my neuro says tysabri is what I need to be on. I have a distant memory of feeling good, but it's fading away like my hair and memory. Numbness and tingling has been disabling as the meds tho. I just want to be one of those people who stand up and speak how diet and exercise "cured" them. They probably don't have MS even. It's 2 am, stumbled to let out the dogs and now?

Numbness im only 14

I'm a 14 year old girl and for 4 months now, I have experienced pain. Anytime I'm out somewhere my legs go numb, whole body in fact and everything feels surreal. Last night, hung out at friends party. I was numb the entire time and I couldn't dance as much and I couldn't walk with them and stuff all I could do was sit down and hope it would pass. There were times where I got lightheaded, dizzy and I lost my balance. Other times I get painful pins and needles in my legs and I cry myself to sleep. I think I'm too young to be having this and it scares me that ill pass out and that would be embarrassing. So it affects me everyday to where I just want to stay home and not be out and about in fear that I will pass out. I'm tired of feeling so weak,shaky,numb,dizzy and stuff so please someone tell me what to do :( I'm young and I have big plans for the future but this is interfering with marching band and my ideas and hopes of becoming a surgeon. :( plz help!

nounced

I was diagnosed in 1987 with r/r MS. My constant tingling and numbness is more of an inconvenience and has varying degrees. It is mainly in my hands and legs{feet}. In the morning there is just an awareness of it but as the day goes on it becomes more annoying. Sometimes in the evening it is very uncomfortable so I will take a valium and my pill RLS and that will calm things down. I also have a balance issue. I am unable to stand and look up to the sky without holding on to something. I now use a cane and it helps alot.

MS? Scared.....

I have recently been convinced and afraid that I have ms... I don't have a dr right now so I haven't gone through any tests yet. For years I have experienced tingling in my feet and hands, fingers and my face. Recently, I have been experiencing throbbing legs... I thought I was just chilled so I tried to take a hot shower but it is cold and achy and throbby all the way to the bone. It lasts a couple of days and goes away. Also, I have been experiencing an ice cold, wet sensation on the left side of my head and then tingling and numbness which comes and goes. Today I experienced tingling and numbness in my chest and back with a strong, uncomfortable burning sensation. Also, I get blurry vision sometimes and sever dizzy spells. For the last week, I have been dead exhausted. Also, weakness in my arms and just major tingling that is much more widespread and the burning. Also, my left foot will get burning hot, like it's on fire. Ms? I'm scared... And my balance is off...

Burning itching sensation on left side

I'm 36 and have been experiencing a numbing tingling burning pain in my left foot and my left hand and a burning pain in my left cheekbone. I will get sharp shooting pain from inner left thigh and shoots instantly down to my toes. The joints in my left hand burn and ache and similar pain and sensation on my left cheekbone. Plus I'm constantly fatigued. Any insight on my symptoms would be most appreciative.

I was diagnosed in 2012 but have had MS for many years. I drag my left leg so walk with a stick. I have a tremor in my left hand making it difficult for me to write. I have numbness in my fingertips all the time which causes problems around the home especially if knives or machinery are involved. Fatigue and pain round my middle are often pretty bad and I seldom go out as I can't walk very far so depend on others driving me around but all in all I feel quite lucky as there are so many MS people & others worse off than me. Of course sometimes I get down and a bit weepy but I have a wonderful husband who helps round the house. MS is a kick in the teeth but you just have to make the most of it! It certainly is not the best thing to have but it is in no way the worst. Count your blessings I'm sure you will find some if you look hard enough.

yes

I have had what I call 'severe' numbness and tingling [n&t] in my feet, legs, bottom for over 20 years. was mostly annoying for the 1st 10 to 15 years. the last 5 years is UNBEARABLE and has moved into my hands, face, throat and anywhere I have skin. My hands have zero feeling and I drop whatever is in my hands and I do not know it unless I look or hear/feel something spilling/breaking. The numbness hurts like frostbite, no feeling when I touch anything but burn like hell all day, every day. I trip and fall whenever I try to walk because I cannot feel my feet, so I HAVE to use my PWC. N&T is life halting and life changing without ant relief!! I feel like a cripple because of the N&T, Not necessarily from the MS. as a whole
