Your symptoms could fit any number of things, rather than keep reading up about the symptoms I think the best thing to do is see your GP & perhaps ask to be referred to a neurologist. A neuro is the only person that might be able to diagnose you, but be prepared for lots of tests & what could be a very long wait, MS is notoriously difficult to diagnose.

Hi Natasha,

So many symptoms can be lots of different things.

Try and write the symptoms down and how long they lasted. Go and see your GP.

He will refer you for tests.
