There's a short answer - May 13th, 2008 at The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
But the longer - and more accurate answer - is considerably more detailed...and usually isn't suitable for a short, casual conversation.
A team of various doctors, eventually neurologists, far away from our home in Texas, finally solved my medical puzzle in May 2008 but the journey to diagnosis saw many twists and turns that date back at least a decade. So, when did I really "get MS"? That's a story all on its own...
How about yourself?
If you are checking out this blog and have MS, how long was your journey to diagnosis? Quick? Over a few or many years? Did one specific event happen that led to it or a variety of factors?
Would love to hear from you, please feel free to comment below!!
