Vocal cord dysfunction*

i have been out of breath for at least 2 or 3 months and about 7 weeks ago, my voice started doing ‘weird’ things. It kind of sounded like a preteen boy whose voice cracked and changed a lot. Eventually it got worse and became a whisper. I went to ENT and they diagnosed vocal cord dysfunction and partial vocal… Read More

Distonia question*

Ok so the guy that I'm buying my house from thought that I have epilepsy and I'm not sure. My nephew thinks it's not because it only affects one side of my body but I'm beginning to believe it might be. It's also affected the left side of my face. As well as the left side of my body. Now I spoke to a lady last… Read More

I'm wondering if this is possibly MS related? the episode… Read More


She has a history of serious depression, but over the past few years, the up and down emotions along with the paranoia, is becoming untenable. She thinks she knows what I'm thinking and the intentions behind everyday actions are (to her) a personal attack (like my doing the dishes). Her MS was confirmed 2 years… Read More

I went to the eye doc today. I have optic disc edema. When I started to type this, I remembered that eye problems also occur in type 2 diabetes. However, I have been told my blood sugar numbers are too low. My A1C is down once again. Yay! My blood sugar rarely gets above 180. It actually hovers between 140 and… Read More

Hello, I'm new to this discussion group and have not had a diagnosis of MS (although I am in the process of getting tested). I hope this post doesn't offend anyone currently diagnosed with MS. I never realized how many things I've been ignoring that my body was doing until recently. A little over a week ago I… Read More


Hello, My goal is to get some insight on how others who struggled to find a diagnoses finally did. I'm miserable with all MS symptoms and have a clean MRI's of brain and spine (with a few dots in the frontal lobe, which they aren't worried about), so neurologists don't have answers. I have bad episodes that… Read More

It all started with dizziness about 10 years ago.  I went to a Neurologist first to make sure I didn't have a brain tumor or aneurysm.  They did not see anything wrong with my blood vessels and no tumors.  So they then sent me to the hospital to get a vertigo test.  They ruled out that it was an inner ear thing… Read More
