A rheumy told me I had fibro and… Read More

My husband says he has MS. . .*

Hello. My husband often tells me he has MS but has never been to the doctor, he just self diagnosed himself and says he has a grandma that had it. I keep telling him to see a doctor but he refuses. How did you that have MS actually find out you had it? What steps did you take? I have no idea where to start. Read More
