Hi jkoo4

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you are suffering and struggling in this way, and I sincerely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to these issues, and get a diagnosis one way or the other. It is strange that your doctors have not said what they think the condition is? Usually after the MRI and the Lumber Puncture they can pretty much diagnose you with MS.

I am not a doctor so I cannot say whether you have MS or not but I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck. Please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you



Thank you Ken , they have now diagnosed CFS/ME hasimotoes hypothyroidism .i do have some leisions s but not in the right place for MS . He did say some people with CFS may end up with ms in the future ( not sure if that's right or not ) . 


Hi again jkoo4, I am so gneuinely sorry to read that you have been diagnosed with all of this and I want to sincerely wish you all the best for the future. Please take care of yourself.
