I'm a 62-yr-old woman. In 2006, I had an MRI which showed that I have demyleanating nerves in my brain. I was referred to a neurologist. He did not perform any testsor even ask me any questions about my history. He just said,"the radiologist suggests you have MS, but he's wrong. 58 year old people don't get MS. You can't possibly have it." He said maybe I had neuropathy and suggested I come back for a series of B12 shots. I declined the shots and said I was glad I don't have MS and left. I have not discussed this with any doctor since then. I decided (perhaps out of fear) just to ignore the whole thing. I have lately been having some problems which I believe could possibly be symtoms of MS. Also, as I do research, I can see incidents in my life which seemd at the time to be unrealted but now see that (taken together) might have all been symtoms of the same disease. I don't have a primary care physician. When I don't feel well, I usually just wait it out to see if things improve. Is it possible I could have had MS for years and not have had it diagnosed. If I did, it's probably mild. What would be the consequences of my continuing to ignore this. I really feel somewhat foolish going to see a doctor and saying "I believe I might have MS and here are the reasons why, " espcially since I am now 62.
