MS? Help please

Hi there, I'm currently 17 years old.

Back when I was around 15, I had various neurological symptoms - although I also had anxiety. I experienced shaky legs going down stairs for a few weeks and I also woke up with shaking legs/arms at night which would quickly go away. Also, every now and then, my eyes shake side to side when they're tired and I'm looking at something really closely. Any help would be appreciated.  I did go to my doc when having these but she put them down to anxiety and don't think she took me seriously. Thanks

Hi There.....Sounds like you are having Anxiety from your Symptoms. If you are having strange feelings or symptoms YOu will have anxiety. Trust me, I know this from personal experience. If your eyes are shaking from side to side, sounds like Nystagmus. I had that for a long time. I suggest you get an Eye exam, tell your Primary Dr. about it...and I'm sure he/she will get more tests done. I'm sure it's nothing tooo serious. Good Luck.

Okay thanks, I'm sure it may well be anxiety.

Could you explain my eye movements a little more? I don't really understand them and every time I look them up they seem to mean I have one of many complicated neurological diseases? Thanks

Also, when I track a pen across my vision from side to side and in the corners and up and down (and even hold it there) my eyes don't wobble at all. Are you sure this is a nystagmus?
