Symptoms of MS

Numbness *

Hi Everyone, I woke up two days ago with numbness over most of my body-bascially from the shoulders down. No pain (thank goodness) but overall it's an odd feeling. I can still walk although a little nervous about it. I have lived with my right hand mostly numb and tingly from day one of my MS. I just got used… Read More


Hello everyone! For the last few weeks I have had the feeling of buzzing and/or vibration-like feelings in my feet and lower legs.

How to cope?

I'm new here and I'm not really sure if this is where I should put this. I was diagnosed on Monday and I am stilly really confused/angry/upset. I'm a college student and I am having issues with my cognition. I need some coping help and I'm not sure if I should call my neurologist or not. This is a new symptom… Read More

Symptoms that come and go through the day

I have had Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis since 2004 (when I was diagnosed).  In 2006 after a lot of stress, I woke up one morning after having some insomina and I couldn't walk; well was walking like a drunkard.  It isn't from numbness, it feels more like weekness and spacity, though I do have a lot of… Read More

Compression Sock

Hi-  Does anyone use compression socks?  My husband's leg gets very swollen during the day, probably from lack of use, but he also wears a walk aid.  We bought a pair of compression socks that seem to help, but I wanted to know if they are safe for him to wear.  If anyone knows, or has a suggestion on brand, it… Read More

Summer time and heat! *

So I live in Florida and it is starting to get very hot outside! Im sure most of you have heard about Topgolf but I’m a server there and working outside in 95 degree weather has been extremely tough on my body.

Recent Dysphagia-Manometry?? *

I have recently begun to have more frequent dysphagia- im choking on my saliva more often than not. It was the one symptom I really wished I never got, Pureed food and thickened liquids never appealed I guess. I have an Endoscopy scheduled for other ongoing symptoms that they think may not be MS, but they are… Read More

Arm Tremors*

I am a 70 year old lady, happy family and life. More than 10 years ago I had a bout of optic neuritis which I was told was often an early sign of MS. I had an MRI that the neurologist said also showed the characteristic bright spots of MS. The neurologist said she couldn't make an absolute diagnosis which I… Read More

Digestive Issues*

I dont know if this is a symptom, but it is of concern to me. My intestines like to shut down on me. This happens when I travel mainly. From what I have read, that is quite normal. However, when they shut down when I am not traveling concerns me. They will shut down anywhere from 3-7 days. This is painful. A… Read More

Not a Migraine*

So I have chronic pain in my back, the whole thing from the base of my skull to the tip of my tailbone. Very few actual medical problems there though a few but not enough to account for the pain. About a year ago I relized that I also have horrible nerve pain. I had been on neurotin for psychological reasons… Read More

Today was a Hard Day *

long term valium for spasticity*

I also do some recording and some music ministry in my church. Losing my ability to do these things was scarey. Tried other meds like baclofen etc... but side affects out… Read More
