I am 42 years old and have been told I have MS but they havent done any extensive testing.  i was diagnosed over 4years ago but then lost all insurance and havent had any since.  So all testing from that point on stopped.  I have been on steroids with no sucess.  The only thing that seems to help I cant stay on for long because of the side effects and the sickness that comes with it.  I just need someone to tell me what I am looking at.  I have tremmors now, where my hands, legs jerk or shake.  I have sever depression and have been told I am bi-polor manic-depressive.  Is this all part of it or  am grouping all of this together and it is all seperate things.  I am at the end of my rope and dont know what to do.  Someone please let me know I am not the only one.  That I am not alone.cry

You are never at the end of your rope. Remember you are never alone or the only one. While no two people are the same with MS we all share in the "symptoms" and hardships MS can offer us.

Have you looked into state programs for insurance? Some, like NC have programs for preexisting insurance. I am currently in the process of switching over. I am not sure on the "qualifications" but its worth a look where ever you are located.

Have you tried any of the natural approaches? Personally I have seen great success with diet. I went on the Swank diet and have also removed milk and refined sugars. I have consulted with a nutritionists and added supplements and vitamins as well (lots of blood tests, this really helped my fatigue issues). Check your B12 and D first.

little pixy,
It is so important for you to find a way to get insurance, even if you have to rely on a government program.  The best way to deal with your symptoms is to find an experienced doctor who can work with you on setting up a care plan.  Good luck, I hope you get something figured out soon.  And you are not alone, lots of people here with similar experiences.

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12).
