    Cassey, Hi and welcome. Unfortuanantly I haven't been on here much lately. Been sick a lot and in bed.

    Normally a MRI that includes the brain and a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) to examine your spinal fluid is done to diagnose MS and TM. TM normally hits you hard and fast. One day you wake up fine and that evening your legs don't work kind of thing. MS is slower and sneaky. It creeps up on you. It may start with a few weeks of feeling a bit off balance or maybe your eyes seem to not focus quite right. Whatever the symptoms they normally go away and months or even years later something else goes weird especially urinary problems may appear.

    Have you been seen by a neurologist? If not what does your primary care doctor say?
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
