    Diagnosis

    Multiple Sclerosis Took 4 Years (probably Longer) To Confirm

    I haven't felt "normal" since I was 12. That is when my back pain started. First, they said it may be scoliosis. Then they changed their mind and said it was not that bad, and that I probably just had "weak back muscles" and told me to do sit ups to strengthen them. I always had...
