Multiple sclerosis symptoms in my head?

Multiple sclerosis symptoms in my head?

My doctor called yesterday because she received part of the results of my MRI. Turns out I have a bulging disc in my neck area on the right side. I at first thought, oh, that maybe could explain the tendonitis I’m having in my shoulder but that’s my left side. Unless they consider the right side when they are viewing in front of you in which case their right is my left. Then my doctor said maybe that could explain some…

The multiple sclerosis hug symptom seeing my neurologist

The multiple sclerosis hug symptom seeing my neurologist

Over the years, a repeated cycle has always occurred when I went to an appointment with my neurologist.  I would see him and a week later I would have some sort of MS problem.

My MS neurologist checkup

My MS neurologist checkup

I have 2 neurologists. One is a straight neurologist who diagnosed me 18+ years ago and has been with me since.  The other is a multiple sclerosis specialist in New York City who I’ve been seeing for about 2-3 years now.  Both of them work on different aspects of my MS. My neurologist is usually the symptoms manager. He prescribes the daily drugs I take. The specialist deals with which MS drug I’m on. The blood work, MRI scans and…
