Hello all. I was diagnosed with MS 2 weeks ago today. To say that it was overwhelming and scary would be an understatement. I am 39 and the first symptom I had was 6 months ago. On my MRI over 50 spots were found. I feel like that is a lot, and I'm wondering if that is normal or is a lot. I know that no one even the Neurologist can tell me how my disease will progress, but I'm freaked out to thing of how wide spread the problem is in my brain. Since receiving the 5 days of IV steroids my symptoms are all gone expect for I still have more fatigue than I used to have. Earlier this week I felt great and completely normal but that doesn't seem possible for someone with wide spread plaques in their brain. Just curious to hear other peoples experiences.
Thank you

Hi Rangie, I have not been diagnosed yet, but have white spots on my Brain Scan and the Spinal Tap said
I have a demyelinating illness similar to MS. So I will go to the Neurologist in a few days to talk to him and get more answers. It is very scary to have such an unpredictable illness and no two people have the same symptoms.
But I had Lupus for over 15 years and that was just as crazy! So this will be another adventure. I value my Christian faith so much and the support of family and friends.
Best regards to you!
