I don't that I know of yet have MS. I did work in a medical office for several years and recall women being fought off guard by the diagnosis.
goodluck hope nothing serious
my mom has MS...has had it for over 15 years. She is actually one of the youngest looking 63 years olds I have seen. She is very active and has to be or it goes downhill fast. She runs and does Zumba everyday...but her balance has made her stop riding her bike. She has vision issues and she can't handle very cold or hot stuff. What are your symptoms? She has episodes every once in awhile. I have things happen w/ me and always wonder if I have it too.
I went in to be tested. My symptoms at the time were extreme vertigo(could barely walk and couldn't drive), leg numbness, numb feet. I was sent to a neurologist who was looking for other causes to the numbness and couldn't. I had an NG test(I think it was called) where they test inner ear with hot and cold water tubes for vertigo, had 3 MRIs to look for lesions or other causes and then they ordered a spinal tap. Basically once my legs started going numb and I started googling, I figured it had to be MS.
