Hi Everyone,
I hope this day finds you well ;)
I would like to know how many of you out there have MS? I know I have 4 cousins in wheelchairs due to this. All from the same family.
Your symptoms as they vary from person to person.
How long it took to get a diagnosis?
What treatments are you on and how they work for you?

The reason for this post is there is so many with this illness. I personally am headed to a NS for a brain MRI to rule out or find out :? Many that have read my posts have known about my walking issues. Well now (possible) it still could be cardio related BUT also is very similar to MS.
I finally after being home since the 19th from a revision surgery was able to walk with the walker down at least 2 houses and back <:P BUT half way back the legs froze again and started going outwards. Then started getting weak and they started to buckle while walking. Very painful :''(
The more I read last night on a MS support group well I also have cramping in the feet. A rubber band effect just underneath my ribs (near waist) level. Headaches/vertigo.
Now also wondering if the other Rheumy is right and I do not have Fibromyalgia. Since MS and FMS plus tons of others mimmick each other. There is no bone spurs in my MRI"s and no nerve impingement. So those are ruled out.

Anyways people that know me know I can write a book while posting and I do not want to do that.

Would love to hear from anyone. Even if its a family member.
I consider this topic chronic pain. If the mods feel it is not please feel free to move it.

Thanks!!!! ;)

Lots of hugs to everyone suffering today
