Geoff Flynn, 42, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) two and a half years ago. As unsettling as that diagnosis was, more troubling — both then and now — were the five long years of struggle it took for him to get a proper evaluation as to the cause of his neurological symptoms.
“The first thing I noticed was that, when I was sitting, if I tilted my head up I felt like I was going to pass out. Slowly over time walking got more difficult, fatigue increased, and my bladder got more impatient. I realized fairly early on that my symptoms matched many that come along with MS,” Flynn, of Alberta, Canada, said to Multiple Sclerosis News Today.
