Count me in! I was diagnosed at age 60, after seeing two general neuros., and finally an MS Specialist who diagnosed me in two days. I was put on Rebif two weeks later.
So far, I'm in the remission stage for four years. My neuro thinks I have had it since my forties. I dismissed the fatigue, numbness,, clumbsiness, pain as just getting older. But when the cognitive symptoms came, I knew something was very wrong. My first neuro passed it off as "just getting older"
But, I couldn't remember my address, couldn't multi-task, etc. After a year of this, he finally relented and I had my neuropsych. testing. It confirmed all the glitches I had been experiencing, but still no diagnosis.
I was tested for Lymes, Lupus, other connective tissue diseases, B12 deficiency, had MRI"S with four lesions, MRA to look for an arterial problem, spinal tap that only showed high protein .
By the time I was diagnosed, four years later, I had ten brain lesions. My MS so far is mild, but we're hoping to keep it that way. My last MRI showed no increase in lesions, so hopefully the Rebif is working.
I hope you get answers soon. Gabbylady
