He complained about his ears ringing but they did a catscan and that was normal. He'd complained about dry eyes. The doctor gave him some meds for… Read More

CIS*

I was recently diagnosed with CIS but the doctor said this is usually the start of MS.  Everything I read says tha CIS mean that you've had only one flair up but my numbness is all the time just not the tingling and burning and neuralgia. What do I have to have to be considered having another flair. Numbness… Read More

Newly diagnosed*

I was diagnosed with ms last week. This has been a long road for me and I don’t quite know if I feel relieved or not. About 11 years ago after struggling with massive migraines I had an mri done and they found a lot of spots that may or may not be from ms so I was sent for a spinal tap and that came back… Read More

Still in limbo*

So it's a month later and still no answers. I had my lumbar puncture on May 16 and had to wait two weeks for the results. They came back negative - no OCBs, normal protein levels, nothing to indicate MS. Still waiting for a callback from my neurologist on whether that means no MS, though from what she has said… Read More

Hello, The past eight years I have struggled to grasp doctor visits and tests with the usual "Everything is normal," response.

I've been having the symptoms all my life, but I didn't know what they were symptoms of until I looked up MS because of my friend's diagnosis. After I finish writing all of this out you'll probably think I'm crazy for not seeing a doctor already. I can't remember when my symptoms first started (I have DID… Read More
