What Kind Of Doctor Do You Need If You Suspect You May Have Ms?

What kind of doctor should you see if you suspect you have MS? What are the symptoms? What kind of tests are run to confirm a diagnosis?

Answer

Hi frustrated!!

I understand have very frustrating and scary it can be when you have unexplained symptoms and are looking for a diagnosis. I also have MS as well as RA.

This is a post on our sister-site for MS which talks about MS and its diagnosis. Please check out "Beginner's Guide to MS: Do I Have MS? What does it take to get diagnosed with MS?" This should answer some of your questions.

Also, you can come ask your questions at MultipleSclerosisCentral.com where we have a supportive community of MS patients and folks who are not yet diagnosed. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me. I'll try to answer the best I can.
