Hi. Yesterday I received confirmation, via spinal tap and bands presence, for MS. However my story begun while deployed in service in 2008, but I was told it was secondary to West Nile Virus and was told it was ADEM.
Now 11 years later, I decided to once and for all find out if I had MS or not. Now after all these years with no treatment and according to an MRI, only 3 very small lesions show up. I was diagnosed by a sub-specialist in MS who confirmed that in fact, I've had MS all along, but a very rare form which does not progress unless it is seriously exacerbated. Still, she prescribed Tecfidera. I started it today and I feel nothing, just flushing and nothing more. Anyone out there like me?
Do you celebrate your MS Anniversary?
