I first went to the doc. to find out why my eyes have been in soft focus and severe migraines. The left side of my face hurts so very much! It feels cold most of the time and hot others. I do have drooping in my face on the right side. The eye doc. sent me to an eye surgeon and he did tests and they came back bad. He sent me to a Neurologist and he did an MRI (Spots in my brain). He then did a Lumbar Puncture. Those came back very high and with the bands indicating MS.
My legs are swelling and hurts so much! I have fallen. I am only 39 years old! I am confused often, pain is intense in my hands, hips and legs. I have a hard time standing because of the pain. I am very sleepy!!!
If tests were pos. for MS why can't I get a diagnosis? They said I have to wait for three months for all the symptoms???

  • Oh my Gosh, that is so rediculous. Perhaps I misunderstood you...Did they say that you have lesions on your brain? And did they say that your spinal tap showed--what ever it's suppose to show-- to be positive for MS? So, with the and the symptoms that you have, they said that they had to wait for you to show more symptoms???? I would pull your records and go to another doctor! Boy, I am sorry you are not being helped. :mad: Have they given you any medicine???annlynn
