I am still working on getting a MS diagnosis. Have had symptoms for years just never realized what was going on with me until my younger sister was diagnosed with MS in 2009. She is one of the lucky ones if you can call having MS lucky, hers showed in the spinal fluid but mine did not. I just turned 54 and have been poked and proded since early 2010, in an effort to rule out everything else that could be wrong with me. My biggest symptoms are numbness in my hands especially my left hand, walking difficulties, balance issues, blurred vision, incontentence, IBS issues and I have had 2 MRI's that show lesions one which I was told by my neurologists has been there since birth and one since early childhood but she is still reluctent to give me a MS diagnosis. I am getting set up to see a MS specialists in Dallas in the near future. Hope to get something done with this new Dr. Just want to get on medication that will help me feel better and hurt less. Not giving up no matter what the outcome is will just keep on going as long as possible.
