A woman with multiple sclerosis said she was misdiagnosed for 13 years, and was told by doctors that she should 'exercise' or make herself a 'mixed drink' to help her severe pain.

Lindsay Cohen Karp, 39, a children's book author from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, said she was plagued with 'debilitating fatigue, mobility issues, and pain' for more than a decade.

After spending 13 years searching for an answer, she was finally diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2018 - a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves, which disrupts communication between the brain and the body.

A woman with multiple sclerosis said she was misdiagnosed for 13 years, and was told by doctors that she should 'exercise' or make herself a 'mixed drink' to help her severe pain.

Lindsay Cohen Karp, 39, a children's book author from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, said she was plagued with 'debilitating fatigue, mobility issues, and pain' for more than a decade.

'[Another] physician told me there was no answer to be had as my body continued to decline until merely existing was a struggle. .

After spending 13 years searching for an answer, she was finally diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2018.

Lindsay began taking medication for the condition, which helped her body go back to 'what it once was.' And while she still has flare ups, she said she 'finally recognizes herself again'.

She said 'his words filling her brain' felt like 'carbonation from a soda, fizzing through her mind and stifling her thoughts.'.

Now, the writer (seen as a baby with her mom) said she thinks about the doctor who finally gave her a diagnosis 'every day,' explaining that he's the only reason her 'life still exists' and that her two sons 'have a mother'

While there's some things she can't do - like hiking - she said she has 'found activities that fit her ability level,' like going for bike rides
