Firstly sorry about the very long list of symptoms below - thi is what i use for docs appoint hence the length.
Im looking for some advice on whether my issues could be MS or not basically. I have had ongoing issues for over a year now and have been through the mill with regards to doctors - I was sent to tropical disease due to a trip to Asia but only had negative results. I will add a list of issues below in a timeline veiw and would be very grateful for peoples opinions and suggestions for tests. So far I have had a clear Brain MRI (w/o contrast) and lumbar spine mri also clear. Extensive blood work shows no sign of infection. My lastest issues is very bad faicl pain - mostly one sided - it wakes me up and puts me on my knees its that painful. I also have twiching everywhere - legs, arms,chest, face literally everywhere. Deep pains have also become an issue. I am due to see another nuero soon so am really hoping he can help get to the bottom of this. Symptoms are listed below.
