This has been a bad weekend of dizziness spells and pain. I started new meds for the muscle pain in my legs and when I take them I feel like a basket case, a zombie. My husband gives me no support. I have been poked and prodded and tested so much I am sick of it. The medical tests lean toward MS. But what if the symptoms I have are not MS?? I won't know for sure until August 9th when I return to my neuro again to discuss the test results. Meanwhile I wait and wait. My family and friends ask me to get more second opinions. They say no one in our family has ever had MS so you don't have it either. They say it has to be something else. Don't base it all on that. I feel emotionally and physically drained. My job is in jeoparody, and my days not getting any better. Just want it to go away. Wish I could feel better. Lots to think about and no answers. Wish I knew what my future holds. Lost and confused. I thought I posted this discussion earlier but when I went back to check it was not there. I can't even concentrate on what I am doing. WOW!!!

Recently I've had to start using catheter at home because I've been diagnosed with a neurogenic bladder due to my advancing MS. Does anyone else have this problem? Looking for a friend.
Just read this article and so can relate. MS is a robber grabber! If I go out I have to deal with getting tired or if it's hot - forget it! It's just easier to stay home, turn on the AC, and lie down in bed - REPEAT... Such is the story of my life!
