Dr said I have it but he wasn’t going to put that diagnosis on paper basically because I am still able to function normally, at least for the most part. I’ve had several symptoms for a lot of years, but a couple of …

  • Once told misdiagnosed with MS, moving forward.

    One Dr validated the presence of lesions but noted that I have all the symptoms. But it does not meet current criteria and he did not know what it is. But it is abnormal and my symptoms can be managed by a neutologist. Until they can tell me what it is I call it atypical MS. Was hoping MS …
