The steps leading to my diagnosis were pretty deliberate. It all began one day when I realized that my feet and legs we're losing sensation. I tried to remedy this by running more, thinking that it may be some kind of circulation issue.
Over the next few weeks the tingling and numbness begin to rise higher and higher. About the time that it reached my pelvic region is when I decided to go have it checked out at a local ER.
I had a battery of tests run on me, from CT scan, to MRI, to lumbar puncture, along with going over detailed information about my lifestyle and health history. After all the results are in and about two months of waiting, my doctor told me that it was most likely MS.
