My name is Chris and I have been recently diagnosed with rrms. For me the first attack I had was optic neuritis on 2002, and at that time they did a scan of my brain and the results were negative. My vision came back and I went about my life. Keeping it in the back of my mind because my mother had MS in her life.
Now, about two months ago I went to my primary care Dr with numbness in my leg. I knew in my mind what it was that I should be tested for, and my PC knew also so the testing began. Once the MRI results came back she sent me to a Neuro for further evaluation.
I set up an appointment with a Neuro at a MS Clinic and within 4weeks I was formally diagnosed with RRMS. I am scheduled to start treatment within a few weeks, once I get back from vacation, and I look forward to talking to others about their life with MS.
Thanks for letting me join
