If it makes you feel any better, 14 is younger than the norm. Not to say a 14 year old can't have MS, just that it's not as frequent. As was already posted, MS mimics MANY other things so it's possibly not MS at all. Go see your doctor and if he or she feels it is warranted, they will refer you to a neurologist. If the neuro suspects MS, you'll begin a series of tests: MRI's of the brain and spine, a lumbar puncture (spinal tap), evoked potential tests and lots of blood work. It can be a long process so patience is the key. It is important though if you truly feel something is going on, be it MS or not, that you pursue it. Doctors can have a nasty tendency to blow people off so be persistent. It's your body and your health. Good luck!
