Hi everyone. I'm wondering if anyone else has had the same experience I have. I first began having symptoms in February of 2005. I thought I was having a stroke. I spent all day on the couch with a horrible migraine. I'd never had one before. I got off the couch and realized my right leg was completely numb. During the night, I went numb from the waist down, and went to the ER in the morning. They told me, "You either have a migraine or MS". During the next few months I went through a ton of tests, including MRI's and a spinal tap, and saw several specialists, all the while having migraines several times a month and experiencing other symptoms. Finally I was told that I had "transverse myelitis with a singular sclerosis" and assumed that I would be fine. Then in August of 2006, I started having symptoms again. My hands and feet tingled constantly for 4 weeks and my neurologist said that is was "most likely" MS and started me on Avonex. Now I feel like I'm flaring up again. I've been dead tired for more than a month, having a hard time even getting out of bed, and having L'Hermittes, and tingling in my hands and feet and pain in my legs, but it's hard for me to believe that it's because of MS, because in the back of my mind I keep hearing my doctor say it's "most likely" MS. Has anybody else had to deal with this kind of vague diagnosis?
