What if you're generally clumsy and not well balanced? I would assume that would hamper the result of the test.

Now that I remember,  I recall reading of a girl who played a video game for like 10 hours and got a horrible migrane. She went to the hospital and they found a tumor. She said the game saved her life, because she's just fine now.

I"m hesitant to take the test.
My MRIS of 2011 and 2012 head didn't say I had MS.  Oh the thoughts that come.

So, if you are experiencing muscle twitches all over your body without any other accompanying symptoms, then it's most likely NOT Multiple Sclerosis?

Are MS muscle twitches localized to affected areas only??

I have some severe trouble with with fast hand movements (like the alternating ones). Could it be anxiety anyway? Or is it possible that 300mg Lyrica a day hampers my coordination/Diadochokinesia?

Can anxiety atribute to clumsiness and general neuro problems?

I have quite a few diagnosises (GAD/PA/OCD/Hypochondria/Major depression/somatoform disorder, all of them given by doctors and not self-diagnosed), can any of them atribute to me failing some of these tests?

Sorry for freaking out, but my main scare is Parkinsons, and as of now I fail most tests (but sometimes I pass them all=/ ) How come that my problems seem to be intermittent?

I thought about that too. I think that self-assessment can be problematic, because we (w/o doctors degree in neurology) are not able to account for all variables affecting the test outcome and thus might be interpreting things as worse (or better) than they actually are.

I tend to do well on these tests from time to time, but I am generally clumsy and uncoordinated so that affects my results=)
