Waiting was very hard for me, very hard!! I found out I had MS in March of this year, 2012, after being misdiagnosed with a brain tumor and after brain surgery, on Feb. 20, 2012, the pathology reports were inconclusive and at one point, I was informed that 99.9% I had malignant Lymphoma in my brain, and I would begin chemo in 6 weeks and I had a less than 1% chance it could be MS! I am happy to say the final report: no cancer, no lymphoma, no malignancy!! Yes, I have MS, but thank God I do not have cancer! The MS medication I take is Copaxone, and it is working great for me. After the brain surgery I developed a text book MS lesion on my spine. I started my treatments in April, and I just had an MRI on November 12th, and the MS lesion is GONE!!!!! YEP, GONE!! Know matter what happens, never give up hope, and just know that MS today, is so much better controlled and treatments available now are so much better than 5,10,15 and 20 years ago!!!! I wish you all the best and hope you do NOT have MS, however, if you do, I hope my story has helped! BTW I am 32. View Thread
