I was always moving around. Taking care of my family and friends. This time I needed to be taking care of. It all started in March 2012. I was a caregiver for my aunt and grandson. Making sure the food is cooked,clean the house, and taking care of a lil boy who's mom was doing drugs and alcohol when she was pregnant.
I felt like I was have a stroke or something. My aunt advised me to go to the ER right away.The next thing I know,I was admitted to the hospital. I had x-rays and MRI done. But no one could tell me what it is. Then the doctor ordered the brain wave test so now I've been having seizures. For 2 years,I've been taking Keppra 500mgs. I still was complaining of headaches, tremors, and could not sleep at all. I finally found another doctor and he gave me an referral to Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston,SC. The doctors are the BEST!
I had an appointment on October 19,2013. I was diagnosed with optic neuritis and diabetes. The doctors wasn't sure that I have MS.I went back to see the neurologist. Then it was confirmed that I have MS. This is very scary for me. It was like my life was over and now I don't know what to think. I also suffer from depression,too.
The moral of this story is get a second opinion! I did!
