I have been having strange symptoms (weakness resulting in needing a wheelchair. urinating myself at night, cognitive dificulties, pins & needles/tingles) and the docs (2 of them thought MS) Neuro did LP but it came back fine s he dismissed me but Prmary care still thinks MS and is doind referall for 2nd opinion. Anyway, how likely its this. You caan see all my syptoms with onset dates on my blog (below) if that will help. I feel frustrated and helpless. what should i think.

I am sorry that you're feeling so frustrated and overwhelmed. I know it is difficult to have symptoms and not understand why they are occurring. I think getting a second opinion is an excellent idea. Your doctor might want to send you to a multiple sclerosis clinic.
A neurologist should work with you to help explain these symptoms. If this is not multiple sclerosis then other explanations need to be sought.

I think the simplest thing to do is ask the MS Clinic where the nearest MS clinic is to you since they are not taking new patients. You could also contact the National MS Society and ask for their help in finding a clinic.
