Gelonne's Life with MS

I am a 62 year old woman. I started the process of getting diagnosed with MS, in 1998. I go to my appointments take my meds as subscribed, travel 5 hours for testing. And now I'm told that I don't have MS.

The Dr's don't know what I have, but it isn't MS. Humph.

Soo am I supposed to start all over again? I don't know what to do.

My first neurologist told me that he couldn't say DEFINITELY that I MS, but, he believed that I have MS.

That was over 20 years ago. Now this Dr. who as only seen me once said I don't..

Never mind that I have balance problems, that I fall frequently enough to learn how to fall so I don't hurt myself. Or that I have trouble holding a conversation, or even that I tire easily. My legs always feel like I have pins and needles coursing through my veins.
My family and I have learned to laugh at myself for the symptoms. That doesn't mean I don't have MS.
