Back and neck injury, stiffness, shivering, migraines. Elevated cholesterol levels. Suggest?

I am a 45 year old female. iIstarted having a feeling like my arms were weak and tremoring. My legs also feel this way but not as severe. I have had bloodwork last week and more today. I am having an MRI of my brain tomorrow. I did have a neck and back injury over 20 years ago that causes a lot of pain and stiffness . I feel like it may stem from that. The bloodwork Ihad that came back didn t show much. I think my regular doctor was loking for Anemia , vitamin D and B 12 (being low) I think. My blood sugar fasting was 82 and my cholesterol was a little elevated but nothing major. I don t know if they looked at kidney or liver function. They may have. There just wasn t anything alarming going on or with the X rays of my neck area. I wish this shaky tremoring feeling would go away. The Neurologist I saw today is going to look for brain tumor (because I have a lot of migraines, but that s been going on for years and years). He also wants to rule out Lupus , but i was more concerned about M.S. The other syptoms I have match up more with MS than Lupus. What are your thoughts? I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks, Mischele

I have taken note of your problems in detail.

Very difficult to say you hav lupus or MS with out investigation and your problems can be caused by other more common condition like anemia and thyroid dysfunction ie hyperthyroidism.

I would suggest you to undergo complete hemogram and thyroid profile, ANA BY ELISA METHOD .

Let me know the results for further plan
