SUDDEN? SUDDEN?: SUDDEN SEEMS LIKE PRETTY FAST DEVELOPMENT OF THIS ILLNESS, ESPECIALLY IN SOMEONE YOUR AGE. i WONDER IF YOU WORRY A LOT. IT COULD BE THAT. BUT IF YOU'RE REALLY CONCERNED WOULDN'T IT BE A GOOD IDEA TO GO TO SOMEONE (YOUR DR) AND FIND OUT? YOU SEEM TO YOUNG TO HAVE HAD TIME TO DEVELOP THE EXPERIENCE TO MAKE A PROPER DIAGNOSTIC JUDGMENT. CHECK WITH YOUR DR.

Anxiety: Its not uncommon for young people who are just learning about frightening diseases to experience some of the symptoms they read about. It even happens to medical and nursing students. Talk to your parents or an adult you trust about your worries. Take a break from reading and distract yourself with an enjoyable activity. You can go back to learning about MS, once you feel better.

Doubt MS, but: you do have some problems, and need to find out if due to your anxiety or medical issues. See your regular doctor and get this assessed. Does not sound like MS, based upon your current nonspecific symptoms.

I have puss on tonceles and large bumps on back of tongue and throat but don't hurt. Do u know what could be wrong?

Probably normal: If you do not have pain and no fever then this may be normal. All of our tongues have bumps on the back of them and just maybe you never noticed them. The tonsils can collect debris and dead cells that slough off and these can collect as small white plugs in the tonsil itself. If there is no pain it is unlikely that you have an infection.

I am 45 with 3 failed ivfs, 5 yrs ago. Benign ovar. Cyst removed then. Last period jul 10. Hcg 464 (20 dpo) & 843 (22.5 dpo) mild cramp, no bleed, ache 1 side. Ectopic, cancer, menopause?

Seems ok: Is DPO days post ovulation? If so, your HCG roughly doubled in 48 hours...That is a good textbook rise! a mild cramp is common, and no bleeding is always good. Seems to me you are pregnant! no indication of ectopic, no reason to think cancer (hcg producing cancers are typically seen in much younger women ie teens and 20's) and menopause doesn't give you rising hcg. So for now, congrats and luck!

Not usual for disk: With the muscular atrophy and neuritis, it might be best to undergo further testing. There are many possible causes, including diabetes, autoimmune, endocrine, to mention a few. At your age, a complete workup is indicated.
