Undiagnosed in Husband

Hi my name is Kendra and I live here in Southern MO. Before moving here two years ago we were on the path to getting a diagnosis for my husband. However, after moving here and having nothing be confirmed through MRI we are at a standstill.

My husband has hit 14 out of the 15 markers for the possibility of having MS. The only one he didn’t hit was “changes in menstrual cycle” for obvious reasons. The doctor tried him on a blast of steroids to “test” if he responded well at high doses then gradually feeling worse after tapering off.

I’m just curious if anyone has been through this and how do we get a solid diagnosis? I this so hard seeing him in so much pain. Are there options for those who have no insurance or are under insured?
