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 was diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy a couple of days ago. Apparently the Deja vu and nausea episodes I have been having for the last 7 years or so are actually seizures. Thankfully, because I have only ever had focal aware seizures I am allowed to keep my licence. However I am struggling to come to terms with the diagnosis. It doesn't really seem real. I'm interested to know how others...
I was diagnosed with Epilepsy when I was 10. I am currently 20 years old am at a point in my life where I am starting to lose hope on having my seizures controlled because throughout my life I have tried multiple medications but the ones that worked my body used to and then would stop. The longest Ive been free of them was only 5 months. Im trying to find something in my life truly worth living...
