You're not rambling....you sound just like the rest of us here! LOL!
Just so you're aware of ALL of the possibilities, my neurologist thought at first that I had MS too, on top of my lupus and my fibromyalgia, but my MRIs have been clean. It turns out that I have Lyme disease
instead, which can both trigger and mimic
MS, lupus, AND fibro! Contrary to popular belief, Lyme is very easy to catch, even in your own backyard....you don't have to go camping or hiking to get it.
So at this point, my doctors and I *think* I have at least some of the autoimmune diseases I've been diagnosed with, but because of Lyme's reputation as the "Great Impostor", we aren't completely sure which AI diseases are real and which are Lyme. I'm being treated with antibiotics now for the Lyme disease, but it may take many months of treatment before I feel better (if I feel better). "Neuro-Lyme" is the hardest type to treat, so I don't yet know if I can recover completely.
You may want to suggest to your doctor that he also test for Lyme disease and B12 deficiency....?
I'll join with you in your prayer that you don't have MS! Good luck!
