I too have the same problems with the words thing and peopl make fun of me when I talk. but I don't realize I say it that way so it dosent bother me much. And as far as the feeling like ya broke a bone , well I some times feel like I broke my arm, but I know I didn't. this week though I felt my second MS lest thats what some ppl are calling it. I was lucky it happened while I was in the emergency room when it did. I thought I was haveing a heart attack. I then relized the pain was higher than my heart and went through my chest and in my back as well. The ER doc ran a buch of tests and did chest X-rays while it was happening and did blood work to rule out other things that would cause it but found nothing wrong....But then again I was told that theres nothing wrong with me and I must be willing my symptoms to happen, and yet haven't been diagnossed.
