A Multiple Sclerosis Misdiagnosis Leads to Harmful Prescriptions

Grandparent and daughterDo you have a loved one who has Multiple Sclerosis?  How do you know for sure if your loved ones have MS?  According to new research published in the journal Neurology, a study reveals a shocking number of patients who were misdiagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a disease of the nervous system that causes paralysis, vision loss, fatigue, numbness, involuntary movements, dizziness, poor balance, slurred speech and other symptoms.  As a result of the misdiagnosis, many patients receive harmful medication and even suffer from “unnecessary morbidity” (morbid thoughts of death), according to a news article.  Many physicians feel pressured to make a quick diagnosis without giving full attention to the whole picture.  If your loved one was diagnosed with MS, it’s always better to get a second or third opinion.
