Re: Misdiagnosed--Not MS
I too, am sorry to hear of you dx of Devics..but im also really angry for you at your doctor. It is common knowledge, even among most laymen, that Devics, mimics MS in so many ways, but almost always presents as optical neuritis followed by a normal brain MRI and a problematic spine MRI. Thats why typical MRI protocol includes doing both brain and Cspine with and without contrast from the onset of supsected MS...its to RULE OUT DEVICS!
Its terrible that you had to go through all this, but hopefully your post will teach others to advocate for themselves...and good for you! For taking control of the situation!
Please stay strong and know your in our thoughts..
