He just thought that since my MRI was negative for now that my symptoms could be related to anxiety. I do not feel like I have anxiety and I have not been able to correlate the symptoms with any precipitating factors, so I'm really not sure. I saw the psychiatrist and he said that he also thought it might be anxiety, but I just dont think so. I go back to see the neurologist in Aug so I may ask for another MRI since my last one was in Jan. I guess Ill just keep taking it one day at a time and see how things go. Thanks for the advice.View Thread
Ive been battling some very strange symptoms since Jan. These include numbness, paralysis, speech impairments, pain in my legs and arms, involuntary tremors and twitching, muscle spasms. I have been under the care of a neurologist but have not received a diagnosis. I am a little concerned that it may be MS but dont if I should just trust my doctors judgement and see a psychiatrist as he recommends. Help please. How long does it usually take for signs to show on an MRI after symptoms first appear?View Thread
