I am sorry you are in so much pain. What made you ignore the diagnosis of MS 6 years ago? I had an "angioma" on an MRI. It was actually an MS lesion. I think you are fine to check with an orthopedist if you have a disc problem. I am not sure what you mean by a thoracic disk....we all have those....those are just disks in your back.
You are diagnosed with MS so of course your symptoms sound like MS. I would make an appointment with a neurologist after you see the orthopedist. I would also share with the orthopedist the fact that you were diagnosed with MS but have not received treatment for MS. Tell him that you questioned that diagnosis at the time but you are wondering about it now.
I hope you can get something for the pain. Also ask about your insomnia.....although a GP would be best for this or the neuro. Lack of sleep can make you CRAZY......I hope you can get some relief there soon. I cannot function without sleep.
Good luck and keep us posted.
