Hi Im heavymetalknitter and theres a good chance I have MS

Postby heavymetalknitter » Mon Apr 25, 2011 6:55 pm

Ive had symptoms of MS for about 12 years give or take. 12 YEARS? and not a diagnosis? My husband is a self employed subcontractor we had no health insurance and fell through the cracks until......construction at an all time low...and I qualified for the communities kind Dr's to volunteer their time for me. So, I am undergoing all the testing for MS, Lupus ect.....but deep down inside I'd be shocked if it wasnt MS...so Hi!

I've been in limbo land for about 5 years now, so you are not alone. A friend of mine waited 13 years until she finally got a diagnosis. MS is very difficult to diagnose, so just be patient and know that you are not the only one... you've got lots of company (for what it's worth).

Welcome heavymetalknitter! I'm still in the process of being diagnosed too. I'm on waiting lists (this time round) because our health care system is "overloaded" (I'll be nice).

Wishing you well!

waiting that long to be diagnosed, huh? nice. Oh well, so far, I am not too discouraged. In fact, I'm kind of used to being in limbo, at least Im being tested for whatever.. :wink:
