A New Jersey woman says her early signs of multiple sclerosis (MS) were initially written off by doctors — and is hoping her story can help others catch the devastating disease earlier.
Angelina Cubero, 27, from Jersey City, was diagnosed with the disease three years ago at age 24 – but it was a long road. Like many MS sufferers, it took months of uncertainty, trips to emergency rooms, and being passed between doctors before she was given closure.
Her symptoms of brain fog, frequent migraines, and constant pain and numbness in the legs were written off as anxiety for years. Now, she wants others who might be experiencing them to get checked for MS.
