Welcome dino -

WOW 50 lesions!

MS is a desease that one size does not fit all. It is as individual as a finger print. It sounds like your lesions are in areas that either do not effect the nerves for walking or your body is re-routing those nerve communication functions elsewhere. Do you have other symptoms?

well, i sometimes have tripped when walking, my right hand is pretty weak,
i have umm...sense problems, mainly in my hands,
heat is very difficult to me, my memory sometimes is not very good, but that thing is pretty rare
i think that ms is causing me to be very moody...from happiness to aggressiveness and everything between that. but im not sure of that??

these are my main symptoms
laugh...did i broke the record with my 50 lesions?

Your mood swings maybe depression & anxiety. Many MS'rs have this and are prescribed and anti-depressant.

Record breaking lesions...in my book it is :?

i try not to stress about this, i know that my ms is pretty strange and kinda quick too.
some days i think about ending everything, well u know what i mean but i still have to carry on, not for me but for my family...and i do keep going on, just for them.
i take tysabri now and various kind of drugs for my depression etc.
and yeah, im young...much under 30.....
