User:I have 'highly probable MS' and take Copaxone. I started having more lapses in my memory, with ringing in my right ear, some hearing loss (as far as I can tell when talking on phone), and blurry spot in center of vision in my right eye. About 2 weeks ago I also had slight facial drooping on right side, but that has gone. Could this be related to MS?
User:I was wondering if the symptoms are related to my 'high probable' MS or if I shouldn't worry
Doctor:It may a result of viral infection
Doctor:Irt can also be a symptom of multiple sclerosis
Doctor:Have you had the MRI done yet?
User:Its been going on for over two weeks theblurry spot in center of right eye, ringing in right ear. I've noted that I'm not hearing as well from right ear
User:I had one in last September, after a relapse. It showed the lesion on right side was gone, and the two on the left side had shrunk
User:so the two lesions that I have left are in left parahippocampus and in the internal capsule next to corpus callosome?
