Hello, please can I gatecrash this topic? MS has never crossed my mind as a possibility and I'm probably barking up the wrong tree. I was diagnosed with ME in the '90s, as well as the sudden exhaustion like there were holes in my toes and all energy was flowing out, there was walking like a drunk, slurred speech, unable to write properly, brain fog, freezing cold in summer etc etc. Also things nobody else had, I first felt goosebumps on my scalp, annoying as I couldn't see if it was actually happening. Later I'd get goosebumps snake down my arms, aha, I wasn't going mad then. And lighting type pain usually in 2 places at once, like hip and leg sharp enough to make me shout. Sometimes several stabs usually in left hip area. Since April I've had a candida infection in my ear, no pain, extreme itching. I tried different things as no doc took a swab. Finally the diagnoses. Suddenly 3 days ago I get a servere pain in the other ear! Awaiting swab results. Looked around internet found ear problems associated with MS plus these goosebumps. So I've joined really to ask what people think. I'm so sorry for all this rambling.
