Neurology help: So you have MS, but you do not use medicine for it. Do you have a neurologist? If you do, this would be a good time to let them know about your symptoms.

My mother had MS could it be possibly if i (daughter) get MS aswell, since i match to all the early common signs leading to ms?

Low odds: The usual risk from mother to child is about 3-5%, so in your favor. Need environmental influence to result in ms, and therefore, risk increases with prior infectious mononucleosis, cigarette smoking, and low bodily vitamin d.

Is ms common and would I know if I had it worried I have lots symptoms but dr say anxiety here lately thigh numb n legs bother me worried ms or neuro?

Is ms common and would I know if I had it worried I have lots symptoms but dr say anxiety here lately thigh numb n legs bother me worried ms or neuro?

Not common but...: MS is not common as less than 1 in 1100 people get it, but that doesn't mean you don't have it. Anxiety might cause some of the symptoms but you deserve careful evaluation by a neurologist. A brain MRI may show evidence. But be aware that Lyme disease is MUCH more common than MS and often has symptoms that mimic MS so I advise seeing a "Lyme-literate" doctor as well: http://tinyurl.com/j8vleow ...Read more
