Still no diagnosis*

Hello, I'm Ana. I don't know for sure that I have MS, but I have had three different doctors suggest it over the years. I have had symptoms for about ten years, now. They did an MRI at the beginning, but they haven't done any sort of tests that would show MS since then. ERs mostly just give me fluids and check… Read More

Still Undiagnosed*

I’m waiting for my appointment with a neurologist so still undiagnosed. I’m 41, married, and got a 15 year old daughter and 13 year old son.  I’d say the symptoms started 4-5 years ago. I run 10 miles a week and lift weights a lot so I think I chalked them up to injuries while working out. It was mostly hand… Read More
