I am new and in need of your great expertise. I am and have been in pain for several years beginning severely in 1999, was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after several tests including an MRI on lower back. I suffer from severe migraines that have been taking Topamax for that works most of the time and MS contin daily for my back, Wellbutrin for a little bit of the depression though sometimes nothing helps that when your life feels like its being taken away by pain and illness. I suffer from most of the symptoms of MS. I started looking into it more when new things started happening to me in the past year, I think it was cognitive prob first, which is hard when you are a nurse, no libido just like that, now I have loss of balance and have fallen and spasms real bad in my lower legs. I have intolerance to heat and very cold, the heat especially makes me sick and profuse sweating happens and I get rubbery legs and almost incoherent. I could go on and on. I just feel I need some input from you fellow MS people. I have to wait 3 months to see the neurologist, cause I will get answers, but I don't know if I can wait that long. I have baclofen, but sometimes that don't work.
