hello everyone. I am seeking some advice from people with possible  similar experiences. A few weeks ago (around 4-5) I woke up and my right arm was completely asleep for no reason. I let it go but 2 nights later I woke up to my left leg numb. I went to ER for stroke like symptoms due to Yaz birth control. I am… Read More

2 Month Diagnosed with so many questions*

Hello, I was diagnosed on August 22nd, at the age of 41, after being admitted to the hospital with vertigo, numbness and pain.  I am a pretty private person.  In fact, I was once referred to as an 'Intravert on Steroids', which I found pretty true :)  I don't like to share things I am feelling or going through… Read More

Newly diagnosed after way too long. *

I am 51, and have been fighting the battle of being undiagnosed and very sick for very long.  I became ill initially at 38, although I've had symptoms off and on since 31.  After years of trying to get diagnosed with MS and only having untreated "probable MS" or CIS, I gave up. A rheumy told me I had fibro and… Read More

My husband says he has MS. . .*

Hello. My husband often tells me he has MS but has never been to the doctor, he just self diagnosed himself and says he has a grandma that had it. I keep telling him to see a doctor but he refuses. How did you that have MS actually find out you had it? What steps did you take? I have no idea where to start. Read More

Scared and frustrated...*

I have not yet been diagnosed, but truly have all but one of the common MS symptoms, and most of the less common symptoms.  Now I am having difficulty walking almost daily.  I can't seem to get an appointment with a neurologist in a timely manner.  I had an appointment on 10/16 (not too bad), and the office… Read More

Any information will be appreciated*

In June 2015 I started having bizarre episodes that appear like ms. I have been diagnosed with chronic migraines, seizures, fibromyalgia and mild lupus. I have had normal MRIs and when they did my spinal tap found 5 oligiconal bands. These episodes consist of falling spells, weakness, blurred and double vision,… Read More

Recently diagnosed with acute MS. *

Hi all, I'm doing my 3rd semester in graduate school. If there is one time I would not want to be diagnosed with MS would be now. I'm an international student, staying away from family and comfort zone. I had a pretty bad case of double vision, didn't know which was real and which was not. I had panic attacks… Read More

Second Opinion or just let it go?*

Where do I start…I am a 43 male from Amarillo, Texas that workouts, eats healthy and loves to travel. With that being said I think I am losing my mind. Let’s go back to 2006 when I first started having tingling on my face. Went to Neurologist and he ordered an MRI. The results from that said thickening of the… Read More
