Hi Dr. Lava, I hope ou can help me because it seems as if nobody can. I have been having strange symptoms (weakness resulting in needing a wheelchair. urinating myself at night, cognitive dificulties, pins & needles/tingles) and the docs (2 of them thought MS) Neuro did LP but it came back fine s he dismissed me but Prmary care still thinks MS and is doind referall for 2nd opinion. Anyway, how likely its this. You caan see all my syptoms with onset dates on my blog (below) if that will help. I feel frustrated and helpless. what should i think. Am i imagiing everything, going crazy? HELP! Thanks in advance.

I think this is what's happening to me. Dr. lava I could really use your help. I have quite a few MS symptoms (or at least I think?) Primary care doc think its MS Neuro NP said not MS because Spinal tap was normal. Neuro won't give me time of day to even see me. Primary is referring for second opinion. Already been diagnosed with one brain lesion on basal ganglia. Is this of importance? All these doctors saying no mkaing me think IM CRAZY! Am I?View Thread
So basically I have been getting worse for about 5 weeks now with weakness in my legs (now using a wheelchair most of the time), urinating in my sleep and mixing words up plus a lot more symptoms (all can be found at my blog). Anyway, to get to the point, my question is how did you know you had MS? They did an LP on me but it came back fine but my GP still thinks its MS. I am looking for any advice, help, ideas, encouragment you may be able to give me as the docs still haven't helped much and I am feeling more fed up, frustrated and plain ol' helpless than ever, not to mention plum tired from trying to be "strong" through all the docs saying nothing is wrong and dealing with knowing something is wrong but no doc fixing it. So if you can help it is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance and if you need any more info just ask or check out my blog (below) because it has tons of info.View Thread
