My journey started over two years ago and I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have been seen by 3 neurologist who said that I have classic MS but don't have all the pieces for the complete picture. The last neuro dr ran a more advance LYME test which came back positive...

Sorry this post is a mess, left out whole pars. Just too tired to start over.
Thank you for updating us! I haven't been on much lately either.
Sorry to hear that you have LYMES but at least now you have a name for what has been going on and it is awesome that you new doc is taking an aggressive approach to try to get you back to as normal as possible.
