Migraines????

Hi everyone,

I've been posting on the MS board since recently I've been led to believe that I have ms, but I thought I would try here too.  So here's my story.  I had my first attack about 6 years ago.  I was told I have classic migraine without headache.  After the birth of my son in 2012 things got really bad and I was sick every day.  I went to my GP to get meds, which didn't work, so he sent me to a neuro for help.  The neuro told me that there is no way it's migraines and did some testing for seizures, which came back negative.  He then told me there is no neurological cause for my symptoms.  A little while later I had an attack that lasted 3 weeks and I couldn't take anymore, so I went to the ER, he told me that aura doesn't last 3 weeks and he thinks it's ms.  He told me to get an MRI and I did from my GP.  My first MRI came up with several small white matter lesions, which I know can be due to migraine.  Had a follow-up MRI six months later with no change, now I'm waiting on a 3rd.  During this time I had a 3 week attack where I had leg weakness and balance issues, I went to my GP and he said I have ms, but it will take a neuro to actually diagnose it which I see in a month.  Anyway, I'm still not sure if it's ms or migraines.  Here's a list of my symptoms, they seem strange for migraines, but thought maybe someone here has had something similar and can shed some light.

fatigue
tingling in hands/feet/odd places like hip
feeling of someone touching me
burning sensation
pain in ear and facial pain
weakness in hands/legs/head
ringing in ears
difficulty talking
balance issues


Thanks

This could be both MS or migraine. Impossible to say. You need more testing.
