These symptoms can be due to multiple sclerosis. It is more common in women. Trouble with co-ordination and balance along with muscle weakness and paresthesia may be seen. Visual disturbances and cognition problems may also be there. Diagnosis depends upon clinical findings, radiological imaging, CSF analysis and evoked potentials. A diagnosis is made after ruling out other possible conditions. You can discuss it with your treating doctor.
