Hi Jokane! I don't believe we've met so welcome.

We have Health Pages located in the upper right hand corner of the page next to the yellow icon.  One of those pages is specifically on MS Mimics. The link is

http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/Multiple-Sclerosis/MS-Mimics---Part-I/show/375?cid=36

Be sure and come back and ask any more questions you may have.

Welcome from me, too!  There are a lot of mimics and the diagnosis of MS is done by exclusion - they first rule out all the others things it isn't and see what's left.

The health page is a great place to start.  I also like this site for a cross-reference of symptoms - you'll see there are a lot of MS-like things that can be others things, too.

"conditions with Similar symptoms as Multiple Sclerosis" is at

welcome again and I hope we see you around more.
