The neurologist may also examine your speech and tongue. He or she will then test your arms and legs for stiffness, strength, coordination, your reflexes (which involves tapping various tendons with a small instrument) and finally test your sensation to a sterile pin, vibration and joint position by moving the end of your finger and toe up or down with your eyes closed. Your neurologist will then decide whether further investigations are necessary. At this point, the neurologist may express an opinion about the cause of your symptoms.

Remember, if at any stage you wish the doctor to stop temporarily, you should ask him or her to do so, and if you want to move for any reason (for example, if you have cramp) ask the doctor first if it is safe to do so.

However, it is very important to understand that getting MS is not your fault – it is not the consequence of any wrongdoing or a judgement against you. It is certainly not a punishment. MS can affect ‘good’ and ‘bad’ people alike – it is not a moral arbiter. It is entirely understandable that you may feel guilty or blame yourself, but any bad things you did in the past are completely unrelated to your MS. You should not keep these feelings to yourself. Just talking to a close friend, partner or relative about your concerns may be highly beneficial and help rid yourself of these feelings.
