Does this sound like MS and I am giving you the shorthand version.April of this year started with dizziness upon standing and legs hurt alot.May my back was inflammed until the end of June.July my left arm went numb and is now almost okay.Since July my symptoms have definitely increased.I now have sleep tremors,standing tremors,numbness and tingling off and on all day,dizzy feel like I'm gonna fall over type,legs,arms,and back always in pain,my right arm has now went numb can still use it but very heavy at times,my hands are now hurting a lot,vision is blurry more so in left eye even have a red spot now,lately I've been having these burning/tingling sensations in my arms middle of back to the back of my head,and my face has been going numb,tongue and throat also this happens of and on in certain positions.When I lay down for sleep most of the pain and numbness disappear except for my right arm currently.I've had every test available to check for any and everything.MRI of brain and lower back in July and supposably nothing I even have a disc of it.I am trying to avoid getting the lumbar puncture at all costs not because I'm scared but when I had the epidural,and I even got the blood patch I had debilitating headaches for 5 months!!!I'm losing my life over this and if I can finally get a dx then I can start treatment.When MS first comes on for some does it make you go down hill real quick at first?My doctor originally thought fibromyalgia now he just doesn't know and even though I have some symptoms I'm not so sure I fit the criteria to have a definite fibro dx unless I've got both MS and fibro.

I know I have bipolar. How do I start a conversation with my doctor and will she send me to a specialist? Or can she just prescribe me medication? I have a history of it in my family so I am positive that is why I am the way I am.
