Okay, I haven't seen a neurologist yet, but made an appointment and the closest was in August. Here is my story. About a year ago my husband and I went on vacation to san fransisco. I had the strangest thing happen, mostly my hands and feet went numb for a few days. The feeling went away, but it bothered me enough to see my primary care doctor the next week. I told her my aunt has MS and I know what the symptoms could be. She did a bunch of blood work and referred me to an opthamologist and neurologist. I kept the opthamologist appt and he saw nothing suspicious. I felt fine then and hadn't kept the neurologist appt. I noticed in the past few months that i would have tingling feelings in my hands and feet, but thought I just had poor circulation. Well 3 days ago I had tingling so bad (and still do) that I made an appointment with a neurologist. The tingling in my right hand and forearm have not gone away. My arm feels weak and I am so scared it is something like MS. My husband says I'm crazy, but I know enough to know that it is one of the most common symptoms. I have to wait until August to find out and I am going absolutely nuts. I am awake and it's not even 4 a.m.! Does anyone think this could possibly be MS? Should I be worried? I heard stress can make it worse, but how am I not supposed to be stressed????

I was diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy a couple of days ago. Apparently the Deja vu and nausea episodes I have been having for the last 7 years or so are actually seizures.

I'm interested to know how others...

The longest Ive been free of them was only 5 months. Im trying to find something in my life truly worth living...
