I am 22 years old with a more than possible diagnosis with multiple sclerosis. I have been to 3 neurologists and am going to see another the end of the month. I have had a spinal tap and 2 MRIs. The spinal tap came back inconclusively due to the hospital not recieving enough fluid. My MRIs came back clean 4 months ago. I am suppose to have another spinal and MRI of the lower lumbar and brain this month too. My symptoms seem to be getting worse as time progresses. The previous Doctors I have seen have been very unclear..some say oh yes its MS,others say its pyshcological. I know its not that. I have severe numbness in my feet. At points I can't drive my car because its a stick shift so I can't feel my feet at the clutch or gas/brake. I cannot feel temperature in my hands at all. My husband has to feel my sons bath water so I don't have it too hot. I have already burnt my right hand badly. I have extreme fatigue. To the point its hard to handle my everyday chores. Some weeks I feel o.k, some I can barely get out of bed. I have been tested for everything underneath the sun. I have never had mono or nor have it now. I have very bad vertigo and throw up sometimes. I have pins and needles feeling in my upper extremities. My legs throb and hurt just about every night. My mental status has been diagnosised as depression and bi-polar but none of the medications for bi-polar have worked and I have tried 10. Can someone please tell me what I should do? I guess an opinion will help to know what other people may think. I guess I am getting to the point of what do I do? Thanks!
