Be Ware If Your Doc Says You Have Ms It May Not Be
I have had 4 neck and 4 back surgeries and have been thru every test ETC. you could imagine.
But my last back problem started a year ago with extreme right leg and foot pain. My leg would give completly out and it would drop me to the ground. It took almost a year to diagnosis from many Doc's. All of them said
I had MS (multiple Sclorosis). There are many symtoms that match MS and every Doctor pinned it on MS probably because they didn't want to look further. I even had the Brain scan for MS and they still was saying MS
I urge you, if your Doc says you have MS,
don't stop there. I don't have MS but I have bad Senosis in my back that was so bad
after 12 mo's I could not walk with out falling to the ground w/EXTREME PAIN.
My neuro surgeon said it was so long without surgery that I may be in a wheel chair. I had surgery 12/17/04. My legs are much better and I can walk, but I still may not recover completly like I would have because my Ins. Co. kept me from having surgerie because the person that read the MRI said it was mild senosis. GET 2nd and 3rd opinions only from Neuro Surgeons. The best of luck to you.
