My Story 0 Appreciate this

I am a 42 year old female. I stated to have symptoms of MS about 3 years ago. I lost my vision in one eye off and on for about a month. The top of my head would get this cold numb feelings. They did a MRI and it showed multiple lesions on my brain but no lesions on my spine. They said I probably just had migraines. I tried to tell them I do not get migraines. However, they insisted that my migraines could be painless. Fast forward to about three weeks ago. I woke up in the middle of the night with both my arms feeling heavy and "asleep" like I had laid on them for hours. The one arm was better by morning, However, the other arm was heavy and pins and needles in it for days. Now, I am totally exhausted more tired than I have ever been. I am having trouble concentrating and when I go to say something the words escape me. I absolutely feel like I am losing my mind. I see the neurologist on Monday, but I am not hopeful. The last time he saw me he said everything I was experiencing was anxiety and I should seek out a therapist. Funny thing is I am a therapist and I know my body this is not anxiety.
