Sorry to bother you but I'm new to these boards and you seem to know a lot about MS. I was hoping you could help me. I have been seeing doctors for years now with no dx. I have 4 abnormal spots of white matter on my brain MRI's - 2 of them showed the same thing within a few months of one another. both of my mri's were done at different places but my neuro said that he didnt trust the results of the scans because of the hospital they were taken at - the hospital he sent me to. he doesn't want to dx me with MS because he says it's fatal and takes 20 years off of your life. he wants a 2nd opinion but i've been waiting for over 3 months for another appointment. I have a herniated disc in my neck also. Now my family doc doesn't want to prescribe anything for pain anymore even though i've been on hydrocodone for 2 years. I don't know what to do. I have no insurance and pain clinics in this area don't accept self pay. I live in Ky and the rules about pain meds are extremely strict. I don't understand why I have to suffer. I am on my last prescription with no dx of what's wrong with me. I can't afford surgery on my neck.
My symptoms include muscle twitching - new symptom, fatigue, cold and heat sensitive, pain in my back, leg, and arms. I also have tingling, numbing, burning, and prickling sensations throughout my body. I have periods of time when I physically do not have the energy to walk, lift a pot of coffee, etc.
Any help would be appreciated because I need some advice on how to have a life again.
