Hey Speedy,
I think you mentioned in one of your previous posts that you had not been diagnosed with MS until it was secondary progressive which was '95. But I see that you had MS since you were a child. I am curious, if you are willing to share, what you were diagnosed with up until '95. Also, if anyone else would like to share what they were diagnosed with before getting their definitive MS diagnosis and how long it took to get it.

Take care and hope you are still speeding along,

I know you are looking for popsie, but I am barging in anyway wink .  I was misdiagnosed with a "small stroke" but that lasted only about 4 weeks.  I was diagnosed really fast.  I went from sort of dizzy to wall walking in a matter of 3 weeks.  I was hospitalized twice in the summer of '06.  I had an initial diagnoses of MS in six weeks (mid July) and I had a second opinion in August by an MS specialist at UCLA.  I started meds in October of the same year.  It was whirlwind for me.
