I first noticed that something was wrong with me in December of 2012. One morning I woke up and was very dizzy. I had just began exercising and never had before so I thought that I wasn't accustomed to it yet. I am also chronically anemic and have had dizzy spells in the past when my iron levels have been particularly low. I noticed that no matter what I did; i.e. sitting still, moving around, laying down with my eyes closed, that my dizziness did not go away. I made an appointment with my primary care physician and he referred me to a cardiac specialist. The cardiologist did an entire work-up, said that he didn't know what was wrong with me and that I should take some medicine. I did not take the medication. 1. He couldn't explain to me why I needed it and 2. He said it was for blood pressure and my blood pressure wasn't elevated it was only 114/74 that day. About a month after the cardiac tests I was feeling fantastic. I had no more dizziness and was getting into a good exercise routine. Then, in April of this year (2013) I was getting into bed and felt a "pop" in my right hip. I am only 4'11" so our bed is a stretch for me to get into. I didn't think anything of it and just went to sleep because nothing hurt when the "pop" occurred. When I woke up the next morning, I couldn't feel my feet or legs. I thought that I had just "slept wrong" and that something was out of place. I made another appointment with my primary care physician and after three visits he finally said "Well, I don't know what's wrong with you. What do you want me to do?" So I said "Give me a referral to someone that can figure it out!" I finally got a referral and made an appointment for the neurologist that my insurance would cover. After only 3 weeks, my neurologist was able to give me a diagnosis of MS. So far it has been a struggle. My husband is in the Army and is currently deployed and unfortunately he deployed before I received my diagnosis. It has been a challenge to care for our two year old on my own as well as deal with my everyday responsibilities.
