Take heart, Limbo Landers.

MS is just a difficult illness to diagnose. My neurologist used to tell me, "There are many diseases that mimic MS."

And, although the McDonald criteria exist to give standards to doctors, there are no definitive medical tests that tell doctors when we definitely have MS.

Neurology must be a challenging career.

So, it is often a process of ruling out some of the mimickers, in order to get it down to MS.

It took almost two years for me to get me initial dx. And, five years later, an MS specialist questioned my neurologist's dx, and re-tested, in order to confirm it.

Hope your limbo ends soon!
