Please research Lyme disease, often mis-diagnosed as MS and other diseases because the symptoms are so similar. ( Called the latest, greatest imitator) I was mis-diagnosed for 20 years and the infection(s) are in the advanced stages. The symptoms you describe are consistent with Lyme disease, the #1 vector borne disease in the US. It exists in 50 states of the US and 65 countries. It is the most mis-understood, under-diagnosed, under-treated, mis-diagnosed diseases of all time. Contrary to beliefs, it is not easy to diagnose, treat, manage or cure.
