I now must go through the process of finding out if I have MS. It started with an innocent eye exam. I was sent to a neuro opthamologist and was cleared . He didnt see anything to indicate MS through my eyes. I have another appointment with a neurologist on the 24th. Does it ever end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • well you should hope it never ends because i guess its just part of livin. kinda goes with the territory. dont mind me i've been fighting troubles my whole life and i dont want to stop.
    really though i'm glad you got through first specialist and hope all goes well with the second one. hopefully there are better days ahead. i thought i had ms because all the symptoms matched. but i was cleared and all i have is bad spine.hang in there
  • :H You are my hero. You have to be courageous and heroic to take care of two small children and deal with your back issues and side effects of pain meds. I really want to know how you get through each day.

    Now the MS is an interesting development. What did the doc see in your eye exam that made him send you to a neuro? I've been having trouble lately with my eyes, can't focus on reading on computer for too long without getting a headache and just don't feel right. I think it might be the Lyrica I'm taking.

    Anyway, here's hoping there's nothing to this MS thing -- how much money can we spend at doctor's appointments - cha ching! When I think of what I've spent in the last year, I could have a new car.

    Take care and thinking of you hon,

  • Hi, I am new to site and don't know much about your particular back probs but know a reasonable amount about MS. My aunt was diagnosed over 15 years ago, another close family friends have it as well as 2 other aquaintances.

    As you may know it has a variety of symptoms which can occur in any order. One thing that can be affected is vision (although not in any of my friends). The main tool to diagnose MS is an MRI where damage to the nerves myline sheath shows up as white plaques. I am guessing you have had at least one fairly recent MRI in relation to your back. While MS not being what they were 'looking for', if any concerns were noted they would have been investigated.

    I am not a neurologist (or Dr of any kind) and obviously you are headed down the right path of investigation but thought this info may reassure a little in the mean time.
  • Hi,
    I have been reading about what glutathione can to for your body and it is unbelievable what it is doing, f.e. helping people with MS, it has actually helped people get rid of their wheelchair witch they have been using for many many years. Glutathione is a part of a Y-age patches from Lifewave. The patches increases glutathione 300% in 24 hours. You can read more about it on my site: xyz.com, please do so.
    Best wishes
