Customer Question

I received a diagnosis of MS and need a second opinion.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am 48 male. I don't have a copy of my medical record. I have a cd with the MRI on it.I am not on any medications right now.4 years ago I was on simvastatin and I believe this has something to do with the demyelination.
