Nyt, I have to say this is dumb, but if you're in need of reassurance, a clinical examination should help. These things do not suddenly pop-up after 17 years of a benign condition. You know this. Your fascics and pains are worsening because there is a strong anxiety component (I know this because even IF I have ***, knock on wood that I do not, my symptoms have lessened the calmer I am).

And Nk, bladder symptoms can most definitely be neurological. This, though, is not a symptom of ***.

TheNomnom:  I wish you lived nearby and could slap me across the face.  I SHOULD KNOW BETTER!  You and I have discussed this at length, and we'd both be okay with an MS diagnosis (I was relieved when they told me I had fibromyaglia so many years ago).  Still, suddenly I'm imagining an increase in the fascics, feeling cramps, and just driving myself nuts in general.  I have VIRTUALLY NO ONE I can speak with about this.  My family barely acknowledges that I have fibro, and any other complaints are met with a "meh".  You should have seen me trying to do my own Babinski test yesterday... it was a joke.

Use something sharp; it's easier to provoke a plantar reflex. I wouldn't recommend trying to test other reflexes by yourself, but that one is fairly simple. My knees are brisk when I test them, but normal when a doctor does.

That said, you'd probably know something was amiss before your reflexes should change. I mean, how many people complain of brisk reflexes to a doctor, right?

Oh, that reminds me. Jillay, have you seen that specialist yet? I'm very interested in what they had to say.
