Hi, I'm new to this board but I see alot of people have problems with their Doctors. I kept having different problems for the past few years but didn't put anything together till I was diagnosed with optic neuritis 3 months ago. Prior to that I saw 2 nerologists who both concluded I had arthritis in the spine. I finally begged my Physician to give me am MRI because I felt I had MS. He agreed and the results came back positive for MS. He said I had did a good job of diagnosing myself and being persistent.He sent me back to the first neurologist who originally told me I had a pinched nerve. He had to eat crow that day and admitted that I did have MS, but I could tell he was saddened to tell me. I told him I wasn't happy about the news but relieved that I finally knew what I had and could fight it. I'm unable to afford medication now even with insurance but I've decided to live a healthier lifestyle and I think that will carry me through for now. Hardest part is having noone to talk to. I can tell my husband tries to avoid all talk about it. Can't blame him.
