I have sjogrens and taking methotrexate (allergic to prednisone/methylprednisone) I've also had MS symptoms since 1984 and only diagnosed this month. SYmptoms since 1984-spastic esophogus, bladder, tremors, etc. Fell in 2000. (early retirement due to optic infections, memory and fatigue issues). Pain began with increased fatigue in 2004-got diagnosed with sjogrens; Lack of feeling and tingling in extremities with memory issues 2007. Three MRI's to diagnose, confirm, reconfirm that it is ms pattern in corpus collasum. NO other lesions anywhere else.All doctors confirm this is not sjogrens with neuro involvmentbecause of lesion location. However, two nueros say too early to treat until I get sicker. Two other neuros and my sjsogren's rhumy-doctor say-treat now as I'm in late 50's and my symptoms are increasing.But even these doctors are disagreeing about which treatment to give to me. Local MS chapter recommended these md's but now they're all disagreeing. Has this happened to anyone else? Do I start over with new doctors though I've already had multiple MRI's to confirm ms? PLEASE HELP?????Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
