For those of you that have been keeping up with Gary and his "not MS' dx, it is official. He has NMO or Devic's Disease. After 10 yrs of dx of RRMS and then going into progressive stage, a brain and spine MRI of NO scars, along transverse myelitis, and ON, we walk into the DRs office to hear for the umpteenth time, I don't think you have MS. Since Gary has not had update MRIs and the blood test for NMO only came out in 2004, I don't know if he would have been dx earlier. Much of the treatments are the same, steroids and such. Some call this a more severe form of MS, but heck, we know what his relapses are. Been dealing with them for over 20 yrs. (he went 10 yrs with no dx) Now we are to look at a different form of treatment.
