Today I am Relieved. I Feel Free.*

After a few years of living with "invisible" symptoms, finally, I have a diagnosis.  Honestly, they could have made something up and called it terminal chicken pox or something, and I'd have been glad just to know what it is.  Month after month of feeling like people just think I'm a hypocondriac or attention… Read More

Uncertain *

Hi all, Sorry for the super long post. I'm 29 and for about the past 7 years I've noticed a steady progression of episodic symptoms. I think the first thing I really noticed was my eyes. I'd get episodes of stabbing eye pain, or pressure in my eyes which would make my vision more blurry. It could last for… Read More

Most likely MS *

About a month back I started noticing slight lack of sensation on right cheek - difficult to describe because if I touch on both cheeks with fingers it would feel the same but somehow the right side face would feel as if it has some glue on it or dry skin. Long story short, eventually went to neuro who… Read More

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
