i was dx with ms in '03. a few years later I saw an ms specialist who thought i may have devic's disease b/c of the lenght of a lesion on my spinal cord.

my lastest mri report shows thinning of corpus callosum and i am allergic to ms meds avonex and copazone so now i'm concerned i have been misdiagnosed.

my symtpoms are fatigue, flares involving severe pain, cognitive issues, memory loss, weakness in limbs, problems with gait and my first three fingers on each hand shake

i have seen many neurologists and with 1 exception it's been difficult to find one. i am shocked that finding more than 1 doctor has been this hard. they either do not take my symptoms as fact; act indifferent or have limited knowledge.
