I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2002. I had been ill with MS symptomology since a 2000 tick bite. After only treating for MS for ten years, since 2002, in 2012 I was found to have Lyme disease (probably had it since 2000) and began proper antibiotic protocol at that time.
So, the way my lyme doctor puts it: I had MS symptomology for 12 years. It was really Lyme.
Chronic Cerebral Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) was diagnosed 2009 in Albany by a MRI of my veins in my neck and chest. That lead to a CCSVI treatment 2011 That treatment made life wonderful again, for a short time! And it made it clear that the problem was NOT full on MS but it was something else.
A chiropractor friend said it was unusual to have a fever with MS. Yes. So that is how I found my way to a Lyme doctor (to this day my primary care doctor believe I have MS and Not Lyme)
So I have become an expert, professionally actually, in MS, Lyme, Brain Injury, and Complex Trauma.
