I had many of the symptoms for MS in the late 1970's. A ton of tests were performed to determine if I had MS, but it was never confirmed; All they could was say that the tests showed there were a lot of things I DIDN'T have. After about two months of various symptoms, everything disappeared and then re-appeared again for a short while about a year later. Since then, there has been nothing that I am aware of. However, yesterday and today I noticed a bit of double vision while watching television. Also last night, I had a momentary bit of difficulty with my balance. And later the same night, I woke up because my big toe was sticking up and wouldn't relax. I have been under a lot of stress in the last few days and hopefully that is all it is. I was in my late twenties when the original symptoms appeared, and I am now 60 years old. In essence, it has been decades in-between any problems. Can MS go into remission for that long?
