Could this be MS?
Jun 9, 2009
I am a 22 year old male who is going through a lot of testing right now to figure out my problem. Let me say that before this past winter, I was never sick nor experienced pain. When this past semester started, is when my odd symptoms started. Here is what I had/still going through in order of when they started:

-electric shock feeling while falling asleep
-acid reflux
-globus sensation
-loss of appetite for a week
-muscle twitching
-muscle cramps
-pins and needles feeling in hands, feet, face... Paraesthesia
-when turning my head left, I get a bizarre nerve shooting sensation down left arm
-eye pain
-chills when it is 70 degrees
-jerking of muscles
-restless leg syndrome
-legs feel fatigued after a few hours at work
-buzzing sensation in hands
-buzzing sensation in legs
-biting tongue while sleeping
-hands shaking
-excessive yawning
-facial pain ie. cheeks
-slurred speech
-stuttering speech
-sleeping a lot, 9 hours or more on days off
-high blood pressure since it all began (only at doctors office... white coat syndrome)

These are the tests that I have had in order of when they were taken:

10 + doctor visits, 2 hospital visits, and 1 er visit

-barium swallow
-blood test 1
-laryngoscopy
-ekg
-urine test
-blood test 2
-chest x-ray
-ct scan
-blood test 3 (vitamin b12 specific) ***
-mri ***
-neurologist appointment this August

*** these tests are pending results

As for the other tests, everything has come back normal. The last few tests have come after I began to stutter. My weight has been all over the map.. from as high as 224 to as low as 209. I am at 215 currently.

The other day I had a weird experience when I opened the dishwasher (just as it finished) there was a rush of hot steam. I had this unusual feeling rush through me. That's when I learned of heat tolerance.

My doctor, who I am changing, is not really sure what I have. I have had two different docs, mine and the one at the hospital, say that I need to see a neurologist. I am stressed, especially since the stuttering started.

My doctor even joked when this all started by saying: "What's the matter? You think you have MS?"

My mother already decided I need a better doctor. We are waiting for the MRI results to go forward.

During the last doctor visit, my doctor began asking me a lot of questions that pertain to MS, and then ordered an MRI. So I am guessing, ONLY GUESSING, that she might have MS on her mind.

It may be hard to believe that I went through all this... but I have, and still am. I can not count how many medications that I have been on. The one I really wanted, some for the stress, my doctor refused to give me.
