I have suffered for several years with undiagnosed problems; it all started with me collapsing in Sept. 2008. I was unable to speak for several hours, the doctors found 6 lesions in on the left side in the white matter of my brain.
I've seen several neurologist, including the leading head of MS in GA; he stated that I have several symptoms of MS, but didn't want to label me as having MS due to the stigma is associated with MS. I finally received disability thanks to one of their doctors stating that he was 52% sure that I had MS.
Unfortunately, since losing my job in 2007, I've been unable to obtain insurance, except for a short stent on Medicaid and Medicare won't kick in until July 2014.
My symptoms have progressively gotten worse, there are days/weeks when I can't speak except one symbol words, so dizzy that I don't want to stand much less walk, so fatigued that the simplest task wears me out.
If there is anyone out there that can help me with a possible diagnosis or information regarding insurance for precondition or undiagnosed medical conditions it would be greatly appreciated.
Does your employer provide workplace accommodations due to your MS?
