Im 61 and back in 2016 was diagnosed by the GP as having MS following an MRI with multiple ‘unusual’ white patches.
Have seen a couple of Neurologists. One says I havent got MS the other says I have.
I have read a lot and in particular about Late Onset MS which is generally classed as anyone over the age of 50.
Apparently the presentation can be quite different and being older other conditions have to be ruled out first before the diagnosis is confirmed and like Adult onset MS can at times take years. Thats the frustrating part.
I would like to start this thread on Late Onset MS (LOMS) and invite anyone else who likewise has faced the diagnosis or symptoms after age 50 and what their journey, symptoms, and diagnosis (or lack therefor as yet) has been like
