Hi..I've been worried I may have MS. I'm a 25 y/o male who has had a bleeding Duodenal ulcer about 5 weeks ago. Here are my symptoms:

I had tingling in both of my legs (back of legs, not down to feet) for about 3 weeks. My legs also feel weak (both of them). I haven't had any vision, erectile, bladder, speech, and breathing problems. I have also had tingling in my left arm (comes and goes) for the past 2 weeks. Now, I get slight twitches in my fingers (very slight - both fingers). The symptoms seem to go away when I sleep. I do also get lower back pain. I went to see a neurologist, and he ordered a EMG test.

thanks!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your symptoms don't fit multiple sclerosis. To me it appears just anxiety and neurosis but lets wait for EMG results.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
