I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just before my 19th birthday (21 now)
I wasn't surprised with my diagnosis as I already had a strong feeling that I did have MS and had done a lot of googling on the symptoms I was experiencing.

I had seen at least 20 Dr's and was misdiagnosed by everyone until I finally found a good Dr who sent me for a MRI and referred me to a neurologist, I remember sitting in the neurologist's office with my grandma while he read through my scans and saying those 3 words over and over again in my head, he put down the MRI's and surely enough told me that I had MS, I was shocked but not surprised ( if that makes sense ) I didn't know what to say even though I had a million questions I just sort of sat there until I herd my grandmother's cries . I could only think of one question to ask, which has never been answered properly. I asked him if I was going to die, all he said is he knows of patients who've lived till 70 odd and 40 odd.... This didn't answer my question at all and I it still hasn't been.. thanks for listening ♥
