Hi Katie 7, Im new to this sit today. Sorry to hear of your troubles.  I am 59 and was diag, about 12 years ago.I was told by my then doctor that i was getting old and had to live with the pain and aches. so i went to the library and checked out all my problems in med.books and got a new doctor and told him my thoughts. so he sent me to a specialist & within 6 months I had a Full Body MRI and guess what I was right. I was diag with primary progressive MS. yeah Darlene

Hello and welcome to the board Darlene!  I've always wondered what a full body MRI might show! Wow! Great history and example of being proactive on your health! Thanks for sharing that.
