    Do I need to test for MS

    I was dx with Fibromyalgia several years ago, but now expericing different symptoms like...

    I tense itching that feels like needle pokes all over my body including head, face, palms of my hands and soles of my feet.

    A lot of confusion and memory loss. Not even remembering recent conversations

    Extreme vertigo that makes me stumble and almost passed out that my cardiologist has ruled out as a heart or blood pressure issue issue.

    Extreme fatigue for days, weeks on end.

    Periodic and rotating numbness in my hands, feet, legs and arms.

    And, most of all extreme muscle spasms anytime day or night that really high doses of magnesium and fluids doesn't take care of.

    Any advise would be helpful, please!

    RE: Do I need to test for MS

    I had a ton of symptoms and thought maybe MS? Couldn't get them to prescribe a brain MRI until I lost vision in my eye. It was MS but waited 5 years for the MRI. Had I known I would have paid cash to just get piece of mind. Hope that helps. Only way to tell is Brain MRI or worse a spinal tap.
