I do not have a 100% diagnoses yet, but am in the process of trying to find out if I indeed have this disease. My hubby was diagnosed in 2000, and in 2002 while I was 3 1/2 months pregnant I awoke one morning with numerous neuro problems. A brain MRI then found lesions and the report said "consistant with M.S. I put that behind me at that time, cause I got better, and wanted left alone. Well some different neuro problems came back to haunt me 5 years later (back in August) besides all the pain that I started out with, I am left with awful anxiety, insomnia, irritability/ and unable to relax without ativan and muscle relaxers. My recent MRI states that I have greater than 9 lesions, and that my "chronic demylinating disease" has progressed since 2002's MRI. I go see a Neuro tomorrow morning (finally) just something else for me to be on edge about. I pretty much have myself prepared for an M.S. diagnoses, I think the waiting is what is driving me crazy, and I have also been told that these anxiety symptoms I am having is common in M.S. Does anyone else have these symptoms out there? My hubby has talked about his chest feeling weird several times, kinda like anxiety/pressure, so doc put him on prozac. I never realized it was his M.S. that was causing it, until I had my very first M.S. HUG!! Then I understood completely. So sorry to ramble, but I am new, and don't want to leave out anything important. It will be very appreciated if anyone can tell me that I am not losing my mind, but that it is most likely from my possible M.S. diagnoses. Thanks

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009. He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him. BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
