new theory that working all those late nights may have put me at risk.
We know that the issues I had last year at my wedding (mostly numbness and tingling) were caused by an MS attack or flare up. This may not have been the first attack I have had. It is possible that what was suspected as tendonitis in my knee a few years ago was an attack as well. It is impossible to match up attacks and lesions that show up on the MRI scans. And I could have an attack without an active lesion showing up.
Overall, the time it took to diagnose my MS was very quick. It takes some people decades to find this out so I'm glad that I can move onto treating instead of still being stuck in limbo land. I chanced upon some great doctors who took immediate action instead of just waiting and seeing. I really like my neurologist so far who just happens to specialize in MS. I don't really know why I ended up with him as my doctor as he isn't supposed to be accepting new patients but I'm glad I did.
