I went for 10 years without having a definitive diagnosis. I've been to Tufts NE Medical Center and St. Elizabeths in Boston and saw some top Neurologists who put me through all the standard test. Before I was 100% diagnosed, my Neurologist got me on to Avonex. I had not had a MRI for three years. I just got the results, no new leisions. Whatever you do, do not give up. Find a neurologist, male or female, who will get you on one of the ABC's.
