Husband thinks I'm crazy...*

I have not been diagnosed with MS.  About 6 months ago, I had an EMG done on my pointer finger on my left side because it had a burning sensation that lasted for months.  The EMG came back fine.  The doctor asked me if I had any other pain happening anywhere else.  It got me thinking that I have had quite a few… Read More


I've been having the symptoms all my life, but I didn't know what they were symptoms of until I looked up MS because of my friend's diagnosis.

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.
