I am 57 years old. My family doctor noticed that I have many symptoms of MS so she refered me to a nuroligist. He told me that I am too old to have MS even though I told him I have had some of the symptoms for over 20 years. In the past, the symptoms were not bad enough to keep me from working. Since I did not have health insurance and made too much to qualify for government health programs, I just lived with them. Over the past few years, the symptoms have gotten bad enough to interfere with my day to day activities. My family doctors thinks I should see another nuroligist; that I need more tests; the Nuroligist thinks I should just wait and see. Who's advice should I follow?
