Thanks for your input but I was not misdiagnosed. It is true that for my age this is uncommon but even small children have gotten this condition. It is rare though. Usally for my age(I was diagnosed at almost 24 yrs. old) it comes along with MS. At this point I am cleared for that but go in for brain scans every year.<quoted text>

commit suicide within 3 yrs. doesnt happen until you are 50 so you are misdiagnosed. probably have headaches from social anxiety.
Yes, people do often commit suicide. The call it the "suicide disease". I have too much to live for to kill myself. I'm a mother! It takes a strong support system when you have flair ups but it is under control now with meds... I keep my fingers crossed for good days!!!
