thank you so much for your reply. he definitely has m.s. he has an hmo thru beaver medical clinic in redlands, california. they misdiagnosed my mother, who died of cancer, my father who is now on insulin. how they treat human beings is a disgrace to our nation. after reading several sites, many, many (too many) people are going thru the same experience.
it took my dear friend 5 years to get an mri of his brain! he has been having symptoms of m.s. that long, and now, is so bad, he can barely see, or walk. he is in extruciating pain 24 hours a day. i just read him your response by phone and he will switch primaries and hopefully get some help.
thank you again for taking the time to help me out.
