    It's highly unlikely that you have MS - you're only 16. 

    The onset of MS usually occurs between 20 and 40 years of age; however, younger and older people can be affected.  White people, particularly those of Northern European descent, are at highest risk of developing MS. People of Asian, African or Native American descent have the lowest risk. 

     

    If you're worried that you might be developing MS, make an appointment with a neurologist and get examined.  

    "What if it's not MS"?  If it's not MS, the doctor will find out what it is and will treat that condition.

    With MS, people start losing their balance, they get spots and lines in front of their eyes due to retina problems, they start to drop things easily, butter fingers, because they lose coordination in their muscles. Plus, it's hard to diagnose because there's no one test that can prove yes or no. Probably, you don't have it.

    We aren't doctors, so we can't diagnose you.  Since you are concerned about these symptoms, see a doctor.

    MS should not be diagnosed by strangers who have not examined you.

    See a doctor, but don’t tell them you have anxiety. If you do, they’ll just ignore and brush off everything you say.
