Questioning my MS diagnosis

Hi everyone

My name is Kate and I was diagnosed with MS February of 2011 when I was 30. I woke up and started getting ready for work and noticed my feet were numb. I didn’t think much of it, just thought I slept funny and they will “come to” soon. Then I went to the bathroom and noticed that my “lady parts” were numb as well. That’s when I started to freak out a bit. But I went on with my day hoping it would pass.

Long story short, after 3 days of this numbness getting worse (the numbness lasted over a month) I went to the Dr. they thought it was a pinched nerve, did an MRI of my spine and found a lesion. MS Story Then they wanted an MRI of my brain because at that point they were thinking MS, so MRI of my brain showed many lesions so that’s when I was Diagnosed with MS.

Since I was DX, the only symptoms i have had is fatigue and some numbness here and there.

I was on Rebif a little over a year and now im on Aubagio and doing great on it. But more and more, listening to other Ms’rs stories, I feel bad because I have had it soooo easy compared to most.

I just feel like I have been Miss Diagnosed! has anyone else felt this way too? I feel bad second guessing my Doctors but this IS MY LIFE I’m dealing with! 🙂
