SORRY...I posted in wrong place on board before, but here it is again:Hi, I'm Ronda. In May I developed optic neuritis and lost vision in my right eye. My vision is still greatly affected. I was admitted to hospital and they did a lot of tests. Among the tests were MRIs and spinal tap. My MRIs showed one lesion on my brain and one on my spinal cord (between C5 & C6). Spinal tap was within normal range. Ten years ago, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, due to widespread pain. I was released from hospital after 3 nights and since then my energy level is at almost zero,& I have fallen. I felt as if I slipped in something, but I looked and could find nothing that would have caused my foot to slip like that. I do have dizziness as well. I am on my second neurologist and they are yet to say they KNOW much of anything, except for my optic neuritis. They have mentioned MS, but will only dodge a solid diagnosis. I have felt as if I had become just LAZY in the past several years, but I am re-thinking that now. I use to be full of energy and that is a distant memory now. I experience foot cramps that will bring the normal person to tears, sometimes they occur in my calves. I use to be really organized and was a great multi-tasker. That is history. My thoughts get jumbled up....&.my finances are a mess right now. Sometimes I feel as if my mouth gets ahead of my brain and my words do not come out like I plan. PLEASE could someone tell me if maybe the neuros just are afraid of making a DX on my test results? I also have partial loss of bowel control (not diarrhea). This bowel problem has been a huge issue for over a year and a half. Please, I would appreciate any advice. THANK YOU!!

Recently I've had to start using catheter at home because I've been diagnosed with a neurogenic bladder due to my advancing MS. Does anyone else have this problem? Looking for a friend.
Just read this article and so can relate. MS is a robber grabber! If I go out I have to deal with getting tired or if it's hot - forget it! It's just easier to stay home, turn on the AC, and lie down in bed - REPEAT... Such is the story of my life!
