Not sure if I have MS?

I understand I need to be checked by a professional to confirm. Problem is I don’t have insurance I started getting tingling in my left foot four months ago. This turned into numbness and tingling by up my leg I started having vision problems could not focus and things are darker slightly blurry until starring for three seconds. I get weird flashes in my peripheral vision. My penis has lost at least 80% sensitivity. I’m constipated constantly I have to pee multiple times to feel relieved. My legs are chronically tight. I have tingles on my face and rest of body at times. I have internal buzzing. Also, words come out backwards at time. I get very tired after any kind of activity. I’m having trouble focusing on things. I just had full blood work done and no diabetes present all testosterone levels great.

    Hi sfoste84 –
    It can certainly be frustrating to not know what’s going on. It can take a while to be diagnosed, also. Have you considered speaking with the financial department at your local hospital or doctors office? A lot of times, they can put you on a monthly payment plan! We certainly wish you the absolute best. Like Kelly said, keep us updated!

    Hi @sfoste84,

    I’m so sorry you’re going through all of this. I’d recommend reaching out to our partner, Multiple Sclerosis Association of America. They have an online chat and toll-free hotline and might be able to direct you to some resources about how to navigate this all without insurance: https://mymsaa.org/msaa-help/helpline-chat/. Keep us updated if you can!
