About Me: Female, 53, Springfield, IL, member since Apr 2012
I am 49 and have just been told that I may have MS by a Neurologist. I am a single mom of three grown daughters. So far the tests I have had is an MRI. I am scheduled to have a lumbar puncture on May 15th and blood work the week before. My symptoms that brought me to
[More] the Neurologist is tremors, migraines, ocular migraines, balance issues occasionally, dizziness, and occasional blurry vision. I have had other symptoms in which I thought was normal and unrelated to anything, which is legs collapsing occasionally when getting out of bed, right arm falling asleep a few weeks ago and couldn't move it, and restless leg syndrome occasionally. I haven't told the doctors about these other symptoms yet. My legs have been acting weird for several years.
