    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.
