Before and during the testing phases did the doctor let you know what they thought you had? Also, was was eliminated before your MS diagnosis?

Just curious

Thanks!!

The doctor who gave me my initial diagnosis thought initially it was a mild cerebellar stroke. Lyme disease, meningitis, HIV/aids, brain cancer or brain infection were all tested for. There may have been more; I don't remember.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.

Hmm.. Kind of random stuff huh..
If you dont mind my asking, what was the symptom(s) that sent you to the doctor?

Vertigo. I went to the GP and he thought it was an inner ear infection. The vertigo progressed over a period of 3 weeks until I was wall walking. That led to a 4 day hospital stay.
