Pain and numbness are symptoms of MS, but pain and numbness are symptoms for many
other illnesses. I think the fact that you have some improvment in your symptoms is a good sign that what you have is actually a protruding disc. Give this more time before you assume you have been misdiagnosed. I have never had back pain and I have MS. MS is extremely variable. I hope you are feeling better real soon. I can feel your anxiety and that is not a comfy place to be. You are welcome here and can continue to ask as many questions as you would like.
