My RRMS was unofficially diagnosed when I was a child of 8 years old at Boston's Children Hospital back in the late 70's. I pat myself on the back many times to congratulate myself on being one of the "rare" cases of MS to be diagnosed back in the day....as I laugh to myself. Official diagnosis was September 10th , 2001 by one of the best neuro's on the east coast. Did it make it any better- NOPE but his character & manners when dealing with patients is a cut above anything I've ever had. He is down to earth and at times just a man like myself. I thank the Universe for him in my life. At present, I am only having spasms on my left side and they can be painful & a thorn in my side through out the day but at least I'm walking, talking & all systems are good for now. LOL. IF anyone reading this would like to know about a speedy recovery I had with my last major exacerbation let me know. I'll be glad to share the off the wall recovery I experienced with some of my own research. Post recovery I even shocked my neuro with the new MRIs I had done post recovery. It was funny to see the puzzled look on his face. Namaste everyone.
