I have been having my knees buckle while I walk for the last few months with no pain or explanation so far. The neurologist has done EMG, c-spine, and t-spine mri's. And all is normal.(I have a brain MRI scheduled) I also have issues with balance. I have seen a neurologist, pcp, and physical medicine doctor. None of them can give me any ideas of what's going on. Is this typical for diagnosing MS? I have other risk factors and symptoms that point to this, but am curious about others diagnosis stories or troubles. Thanks in advance for any advice or help!

I have not Ben seen by a ms neurologist yet. I have my brain MRI Wednesday and will hopefully find something out with that before I move on o another dr.

I know that the symptoms I am having can be other conditions as well but all my research keeps leading me back to ms...

I started keeping a log of symptoms I notice and listed them below. Thanks again!
