We have a family friend who has had weird autoimmune crap going on the majority of her life. She's now in her early 60s.

She is about to get a full work up at a MS clinic, the absolute works. She knows of my journey with chronic Lyme and cos. Her neurologist said her western blot was negative for Lyme.....of course it was.

It angers me because I know what is gonna get thrown at her. I was warned not to say anything or interfere and ultimately I have to respect that.

At least she will be believed. Insurance will cover her care. She'll be treated with dignity and respect. Must be nice

My sister-law died of MS.
She had it since she was 25.
I understand your frustration of not being able to help.

Here is Dr A M discussing patients with sero-negative western blots and neurological diseases. MS is at the 6:00 mark.
