Hi new member here and learning to live with MS

Postby ktbaja » Sat Jan 28, 2017 8:51 pm

HI to everyone. I just thought I would introduce myself, I am Tom 49 and from southern Arizona for the last 9 years
(Chicago IL suburbs prior to that).
I was diagnosed with MS 6 years ago,but had shown signs of it when I was 23. I have since experienced the dreaded MS hug,weakness in legs and arms ,tingling in feet, hands,face ,scalp, numbness of face, neck,hands right leg. Balance problems,confusion and eye sight.
Whew! MS leaves no stone unturned with me.
I know that's a long introduction but I may be able help someone new to MS by sharing my experience.

odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

Hello, I am branding spanking new to an MS diagnosis and living in AZ, Sedona area. My Drs are in Phoenix though. I don't even know which symptoms are due to my messed up neck and which are the MS. Started on Copaxone..
