What I'm asking is...did anyone here ever have a negative MRI report(s) before their official MS diagnosis? Just wondering b/c as I've mentioned, mine just recently came back negative. My C-spine had a shadow on it, but was said to probably be "artifactual". Radiologist said if my symptoms persists, that he would like to re-screen me in 4-6 months. My neuro agreed to that last month, but when I saw her this week, she said that she didn't think I had MS and that she would just run another MRI in another year. WHAT!!?? After I had just told her that my symptoms were still continuing and that I was concerned about this "Topamax" that she has me on....& I didn't know if..."my feet/legs and hands/arms going numb with extremely PAINFULL!!! pins-&-needles...ON FIRE!!" was due to the drug's side effects or just the continuing "MS-type" symptoms that I'd been having (along with all the other MS-type symptoms). Maybe she wasn't even listening!! She soooo contradicted herself. She had just told me last month that she thought I definately had an autoimmune disease other than Fibro, but that she couldn't say what just yet. I'm glad my husband decided to go with me this week to be a witness. He wants me to find a new neurologist. Maybe I don't have MS, but I must have something! These horrible symptoms aren't for nothing...and I don't think they are ALL caused by Fibromyalgia! Any ideas/opinions??? HELP!!??

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...
