Need Patience *

Have not been part of a forum in 10 years, but I need to put these thoughts somewhere. Thank you for having a section for those of us waiting to be diagnosed. Besides hearing if this sounds like it could be MS, I hope this will help me keep track of symptoms as time goes on. It's a lot, and I don't expect… Read More

What was your age when diagnosed?

At 65 I was diagnosed with MS.  After having the same vision issue 20 years after the first occurance I was sent for an MRI.  Hey, I thought it could be a brain tumor.  My physician sent me for an MRI on the recommendation of my opthamologist.  Came back to my physician and she told me that she felt I had MS… Read More

A little bit scared.*

I have been dealing with MS like symptoms since 2008 but only recently saw a neurologist about it.  The neurologist and my primary care doctor both think that I have probable MS. I had an MRI back in December which showed 10-12 lesions which may be from demylination but were not typical of how MS lesions look… Read More

Worrying for months *

Hi, I've had episodic joint problems for years that were repeatedly diagnosed as tendoninits. Chalked up to lots of hardcore exercise even when I would wake up with random pain that would last weeks and suddeny disappear. My right arm started losing muscle some years ago, though I'm right handed. It was… Read More

Still no diagnosis*

Hello, I'm Ana. I don't know for sure that I have MS, but I have had three different doctors suggest it over the years. I have had symptoms for about ten years, now. They did an MRI at the beginning, but they haven't done any sort of tests that would show MS since then. ERs mostly just give me fluids and check… Read More

Where to Begin?*

About a month ago, I returned to the hospital two days after being told my numb feet were caused by a low potassium level and I should just go home and eat a banana.  The numbness had spread from my feet to my rib cage.  They took an MRI, found lesions, kept me for testing and then released me into the wilds… Read More

So, to make a long story short, based on my symptoms I first thought I had fibromyalgia, then maybe MS, then probably Chiari malformation. Finally got to see a neuro doc who ordered an MRI, which ruled out Chiari. But the MRI did show the following: "Single focus of high T2/FLAIR signal in tof the right… Read More

Still Undiagnosed*

I’m waiting for my appointment with a neurologist so still undiagnosed. I’m 41, married, and got a 15 year old daughter and 13 year old son.  I’d say the symptoms started 4-5 years ago. I run 10 miles a week and lift weights a lot so I think I chalked them up to injuries while working out. It was mostly hand… Read More
