    Curious what kind of doctor are you seeing?
    Pain management?

    Curious what did doctor say when you explained symptoms you have after epidural?

    Did you explain your anxiety to doctor re fear of MS?
    With Doctor assessing you, he would be best to guide and or reassure you.

    I can appreciate that often times, having issues ruled out is as important as diagnosing.
