Hello all, this is my first post and I hope you all can help me.
My father was diagnosed in 2000 (after living with symptoms for over 20 yrs undiagnosed). In Oct. 2002 I displayed symptoms of vertigo spells, severe balance problems (I couldn't walk straight), unfocused vision, as well as tingling and loss of sensitivity in my limbs. I saw my father's neurosurgeon who said he couldn't diagnose me then either way but to keep an eye on it. Well 5 yrs later some of the same symptoms are back again. I know MS symptoms vary greatly among patients (my father displayed extremely different symptoms than the ones I'm describing) but I'm concerned this may be a "second episode" for me. Any thoughts? How long should I wait to see if the symptoms last before seeing the Dr? Thanks for you help and advice.
