I have Crohn's Disease and I have recently been diagnosed with "probable" MS from a wonderful group of doctors at Johns Hopkins and am going back this month for 3 more tests-lumbar puncture, MRI of spine, and VEP. My MRI showed evidence of 9 abnormal lesions and I've been having the classic symptoms: blurred vision, dizziness, numbness/tingling, sensation issues, weak muscles, etc...I also have a Vitamin D and B-12 deficiencies. Do any of you suffer from other autoimmune diseases as well as MS, and if so, how do you function?
(I posted this on the Crohns page as well.)
