Possible / New Diagnosis

MS or Conversion Disorder?*

My neurologist and the MS Specialist I have seen both believe I have a Conversion Disorder, but both have been dismissive and slightly condescending. My Primary Dr believes I have MS, and he is caring and has been with me since the beginning. I have considered the possibility of my symptoms being caused by… Read More

At the Stage of "Am I Crazy?"*

Here's my story, two years ago my eye doctor told me that some of my eye symptoms were commonly seen in people with MS. I looked into those symptoms, but did not look further. Fast forward two years and I had what I am calling an event back in October. The event felt like my whole body was against me: Extreme… Read More

I am currently 34.If I would reach a certain way over my head/life my head I would occasionally get a weird tingling that would run down… Read More

Symptoms / Auditory Hallucinations*

Anyone out there who has been diagnosed with MS have Auditory Hallucinations? Meaning hear voices  / sounds / music in their head like it is playing, but it's not in reality? I read 1 case of a 54 year old woman who heard music in her head . Many do not say anything because it is embarrassing and I can… Read More


I've been through hell and back the past month, having to go on 3 rounds of heavy steroids to try to break my severe symptoms, and finding out that my brain MRI was really bad and all but confirmed MS a couple of weeks ago. My neurologist is currently fighting my insurance company to try to get me on Tecfidera… 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

Limbo Land*

I’ve been in limbo land for over a decade but recent had a spell with really bad symptoms. I have never had any lesions show up on brain MRIs but because of this recent spell my neuro sent me for an LP. The LP shows 2  o-bands. My first neuro said that you need 4 to be positive, so no MS. My second neuro said… Read More

i'm asking for help or advice*

Now that MS has been brought to my attention I've had weird issues all of my life. When I was young probably 1st or 2nd grade I was having these debilitating migraines. My mother took me to an eye Dr. I was given glasses and migraines went away. Was told then I had astigmatism in both eyes and that I was near… Read More

What are my odds?*

Hello everyone.  I'm scared to death, but I'm hoping for some straight answers here.  I'll try to be consice so this doesn't get boring.  I've had so many injuries, it's also kind of confusing so I am going to present the info according to my symptoms instead of in story form. Hands - my right hand has been… Read More

Waiting for an appointment for MRI*

Hi, I'm new here. I'm waiting  in limbo for an apointment for my son to get an MRI. I hope it happens some day soon yet I don't want it to.

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

Symptoms but no diagnosis, question*

I'm feeling so frustrated with this. I have constant numbness in my right 3 middle toes for at least 3 years and decreased sensitivity in hands and lips for a year.  Lumbar puncture is normal and MRI has shown 1 lesion for the past 2 years since I started seeing a neurologist. I've been told he ruled everything… Read More

Needless to say, it's being called atypical MS which doesn't help. I have been through hours of MRIs, blood tests, a lumbar puncture (doctor wants another one). And things just keep progressing  little more each day. Totally wrecked my life as well. Clinging on to my job but the fog and memory issues are… Read More
