  • your post of 2008,I was wondering what your diagnosis eventually came out to be, the date today is December 18,2009.As someone with MS myself with similar symptoms I always wonder if something else may have been overlooked in my Rx since I often hear other diagnoses,of other diseases often mimic MS.I wish you well and peace of mind.I'll be looking for your post.
