My neuro said I have had MS for ten years. HOWEVER I was extremely active physically, and got my masters degree. How can that be?

MS has it bag of tricks , but you can still learn, exercise and do what anyone else can. It progresses over time,,,and like anything else,,well good days and bad days. Your ability far exceeds the disability,,,remember that :)

Dilyara,

I was diagnosed 20 years ago, my first semester in grad school and before my first child was born. I was diagnosed with relapsing/remitting so there are ups and down and until a MAJOR attack I was able to function normally. Even though I had a handicap placard for my car I never used it until I needed to, but now I do. I am on permanent disability but held off as long as I could, but no more.
