Hello. I just found out from my Doctor that I "may" have MS. This came out of the blue, after I went to see him last Weds because both my feet went numb on the elliptical machine at the gym. So far, he told me he is not going to order any tests and adopt a "wait and see" attitude. Since he planted the seed of MS in my head, I have been experiencing numbness in my feet and tingling sensations in my left hand (although these have become significantly worse since he planted the idea of MS in my head). I have been constantly worrying about it for nearly a week now and the symptoms get worse each day. I am trying so hard to not let it bother me but it is taking over my every thought and really ruining any good mood I may have. Any suggestions as to how to get on with my life and not dwell on the worse case scenario? Also, I don't have health insurance so that also scares the crap out of me.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
