Waiting for neurologist *

Hi.  I'm new here. I have been told I may have ms.  I'm  torn about how I feel about the possibility.  On one hand I'm scared, but on the other I'm kinda hopeful that I will finally have an answer about what is wrong with me.  I had half convinced myself I'm just crazy. It didn't make sense that I could be in… Read More

Time to move on?*

I’ve hesitated to post this for a while because I’m learning MS is a very serious condition, and my current situation seems trivial in comparison. However, today I arrived at a point where I’m not sure whether it’s safe to let my concerns go or continue to pursue answers.Long story short, my health took a sharp… Read More


Hello, All! I was recently diagnosed with MS after two pretty bad flares that were about 3 1/2 years apart.  I just met with my new specialist yesterday & will soon be starting on Plegridy.  I was hoping to learn from others that are currently taking (or have taken) this medication.  Any advice or things I… Read More

I went to my primary doctor a couple of years ago because I was having issues with my balance (if I lose my balance I have no chance of correcting myself so I fall), intermittent double vision, dizziness, horrible muscle cramps (where it feels like my bones are breaking) and memory/word finding issues.  She did… Read More
