Possible / New Diagnosis

Newly Diagnosed and Unsure *

So, the backstory on my diagnosis. I’m 34 and have struggled with significant clinical anxiety the past 10 years, largely caused by the anti anxiety medications I was on. I fell into an abuse pattern with benzodiazepines, (the withdrawal symptoms overlap considerably with MS symptoms.) After taking a… Read More

Starting to give up. *

I have been battling health issues since I was about 13. I am 38 now. When I was 13 they found one white spot on an mri on my brain. From what I remember they just said to monitor it with mri every year. I always had a tremor and some balance issues but nothing major. I have always also had headaches. I have… Read More

In pain and Hopeless*

I just got my MRI results back and other than a couple of minor bludging discs in my neck, but I still have a lot of unexplained problems that sometimes leave me immobile and in severe pain for hours to days. I have frequent muscle spasms in my shoulders, neck, legs and just started getting facial spasms (nose… Read More

Specialist don't know what I have*

So Nov 2013 I had an episode of horrible joint pain, difficult to move, lasted about two weeks.  December I started noticing tingling while laying down in my legs.  I've had horrible fatigue, mental fog (calling things by the wrong name, poor memory and I have always been known for my memory), hair loss… Read More

My MS is painful*

10 months ago it became apparent that something was wrong.  I thought it was just a bug causing aches and pains until one night I had a difficult time holding things and difficulty walking up the stairs without tripping.  Over the following months I was tested for tick born illnesses, lupus, arthritis… Read More

Tingling in limbs-similar to MS?*

Hello, I have not been diagnosed but have found that many of my seemingly random issues match the early signs of MS. I came here because I am wondering about one symptom in particular-the tingling in my limbs. It started 2 and a half weeks ago. I have been feeling it in my left hand constantly (except for this… 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

Scheduled for my first MRI *

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

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

Hands - my right hand has been… Read More

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
