Hi all,

Wanted to post a few of my symptoms and what's been going on with the Dr.'s to see if I can receive some advice from you all. Bear with me if you don't mind as I will give you a bit of background.

For the past few years, I've been going through bouts of extreme fatigue. (I'm only 24) My legs are very, very sore (specifically my calves) and can ache regardless of what i'm doing. Sometimes I can sit in bed and just cry due to the intense ache. I feel like the muscles in my legs are so tight that I can't move them and walk properly as they won't allow it, so I walk more side to side. This gets worse especially after I've had a hot shower. I'm very sensitive to cold or heat.

I experience sharp, shooting, electric, tingling pains that can originate anywhere in my body and are quite painful. I've also been experiencing numbness in my arm and leg of my right side. I also feel a dull ache behind my right eye sometimes, and will twitch.

I have had bad diarrehea and can switch from that to constipation, although I have been to a gastro. and Crohn's, IBS, cancer etc. have been ruled out.

My Doctor has said that he believes it is fibro, or possibly ms, but when having done the tender point test, I do not have 11 or more points that are painful that would indicate fibro, which leads me to believe that it isn't.

I'm currently awaiting secondary bloodwork results from the Dr. (ruling out arthritis, bacterial infection, etc) and then hopefully onto the specialist that he recommends.

Are any of these symptoms that you've experienced so far with MS? Any advice or comments would be much appreciated.

Thanks again.
