Scared  Oldest sister
I have been estranged from my foo for years. Know nothing of what goes on. But last night I did a bucket list check by contacting an old friend from high school. Turns out she lives next to my oldest sister. And my oldest sister has MS. Don't know what stage although people can live with it for years. Not comfortably but for years.

Looked it up. I have some of the symptoms. They could be related to stress but some are weird. Like holding something and suddenly my hand goes dead and I drop a can on my toes. Happens often enough but could be stress as last one was Christmas Eve. Could be anything. Right? Meant to book doctor's appointment forgot my phone at home.

Could be stress could be something else. good to check. it's very helpful to have that bit of family medical history when you check with a doctor.

RE: Oldest sister
Saw the doctor yesterday. He doesn't thin my symptoms fit but agreed with my written statement that the MS symptoms are vague and cross over with other diseases. He is also hesitant about giving me an MRI without cause. And I agree with him. Apparently you are put into a tunnel, the noise is the equivalent to the warm up process in a pipes and drums band and as a result he would likely have to put me under. I don't have enough symptoms to warrant that. But he didn't brush me off which is a huge thing.
