I found this forum while searching for MS information. I'm currently scheduled for a few tests including LP, bloodwork, and an evoked potential test.

Meanwhile, it has been a 4 month battle of dizziness, stuttering, not being able to articulate my words, and the brain just not functioning properly at times.

I found a neuro that I really feel comfortable with so that is a great relief. He believes MS is my diagnosis but wants to do the testing for more confirmation. Meanwhile, i'm searching all i can to have some knowledge and to understand it better.

I'm glad there's a forum like this to find information.

Good morning, Craftygirl:
 
May I suggest you contact your state/or ational MS society.
 
They have a plethora (fancy word, eh?) of information.
 
I'll bet you can order many brocures on line.  Great luck.

...and...has an MRI been discussed with neuro?
 
Usually the defining test for MS diagnosis.
