I have lost about 70% of my sense of smell per an ear, nose and throat specialist, which also effects my sense of taste.

Also when I'm tired I have a very difficult time spelling, I used to be the one people came to for help with spelling and definitions. I get very confused, even spell check often doesn't recognize what it is I'm trying to spell.

Are either of these found in MS?

Both sensory loss/confusion and cojnitive problems can bo found in MS both there are many other causes.

I think you need to start with your PCP if you haven't to look for/eleminate other causes . If he/she feels MS is possible get a referral to a MS specialiast not just a neuro and make sure the have all your records from the PCP.

Rory, Thanks for the reply.

I am waiting for a referral to go through with UC Davis MS/MG Specialist.

No one's been able to pin down yet what the cause is.

I think I'm heading in the right direction.
