What if it’s not MS?

Flowers next to white bed

After a group of tests that would drain anyone, neurologists might say, “Good news, we can exclude MS from the list of possible diagnoses.”

Anyone in that situation would jump up and down of happiness, but questions like this remain, “But if it’s not multiple sclerosis, what is it then?!”

There are a number of illnesses that mimic MS symptoms like Lyme disease and Lupus. To read more about these, please use the drop-down tab in the menu.

As I am not a neurologist, a proper diagnosis can only be given by those who are, and after the necessary medical tests used to establish a diagnosis. This page, therefore, only serves as general information purposes only.

More information will be added to this page at a later time. For now, though, please take a few more minutes to read the below disclaimer:
