my husband just turned 62. he has not been diagnosed with ms, but i feel his symptoms fit relapsing remitting ms. and i am scared!
he had a short episode 2 yrs ago with inability to stop his speech and weakness in legs. i thought "stroke" and gave his an asprin and immediately took him to hospital. all scans and testing -normal. doctors put him on a blood thinner. about 6 mo. ago he had visual impairment at work. this lasted about 8-9 hrs. last weekend he suffered visual, plus motor impairment---legs---and arms with slurred speech. he also seemed altered mentally. this lasted several days. he had 2 mri's in the hospital. nothing was found.
i hope i am wrong to think ms. isn't 60 too old for new diagnosis of ms?
