What should I know when I go?*

Hi there! Well I did it, I was finally brave and made the call! That was a huge step for me. I have an appointment at the Mellen MS center in Cleveland. I don't think I'm afraid of being told I have MS. I believe I have made peace with it if that's what it is. I am more afraid of these great, nationally ranked… Read More

I did research on the symptoms and I do have some of them, quite a bit actually. My question is what are some of your symptoms? What made you go to… Read More

In November I had horrible debilitating hip/low back… Read More

No Clear Answers...need guidance! *

Hi everyone, My name is Kelly and I am 22 years old. For the past three years or so I have been having symptoms and continuing to get new symptoms which as an avid self-diagnoser/Google-er can all be early signs of MS.

New Here - Question about symptoms*

Hi all, I have about 90% of the symptoms of MS. Several doctors indicated it seems likely, though I do not yet meet the requirements for a medical diagnosis. I will likely tackle some of the other issues later. **For now... my last MRI showed the development of lesions on my brain stem ("pontine lesions"). My… Read More

Heya! This is going to probably get rather lengthy, but I was hoping to get some opinions from people who have dealt with MS (and maybe people who are familiar with fibromyalgia as well?).  Starting in 2014 I began having strange aches and pains, and began to have problems with fatigue in the mid-afternoons… Read More

That I should learn to use my left hand to write and accept the pain and issues I have elsewhere. That this is the best it's gonna get. I'm reading stuff on here about people being diagnosed and living… Read More

Think I have the early symptoms.*

My mother has MS (her face has permanent damage/change and she walks with a limp) and was told by my physician to be on the look out late for any signs she has it and we'd address them at that time.  The last week I've had this weird numb/tingling in the front of my shin and through my foot and also a warm/hot… Read More

I don't know that I have MS, but I have most of the symptoms so my physicians are highly suspicious. Because of an implantable device, I cannot have an MRI which is really mucking up the works. I am moving toward having the device surgically removed to then enable an MRI be done and hopefully get a diagnosis so… Read More

After suffering with "muscle spasms", headaches, vision disturbances and impaired balance for over 5 years, I finally found a doctor who heard my cries for help. Multiple E.R. visits proved useless, doctor after doctor telling me there's nothing wrong with me, time and again subjected to a battery of tests that… Read More
