MS Doesn't Happen to "Old" People

After over two weeks in hospital when I was in my sixties... having strange symptoms... Different doctors coming up with possibilities, scratching their heads saying, "No way, it can't be MS at your age."

Finally, they had to agree and passed me onto the MS department.

When I was given the diagnosis, I felt relief. Having an answer why I had been falling so frequently, and years of odd symptoms.

So I'm here to say active/young old ladies also get MS.
