My first symptoms began about 1976. I had dizziness on exertion and problems with urine flow. I had various exploratory examinations, culminating in the 1980s with a diagnosis of MS, (but no MRI).
I tried many things to help me, but with no result. Then I found this site and tried the antibiotic route, but again with no success. In 2009 I had my first MRI, and a neurology professor told me it was not MS, although he could not say what it was.
