hi all, i am new also. I was diagnosed 2 months ago after several testings, my biggest issues are with walking, my gait, just alot of weakness. I am 52, my brother also has MS, he is 2 years older than me and was diagnosed at age 50, we are both kind of on the older side to be diagnosed, but who knows how long its been going on , expecially with myself, I have had difficulty with walking and more so far for a couple of years now, but have had so many different things going on, just was listening to what i wanted to hear and not prusuing the MS, well now I have been 100% diagnosed, so am always looking for answers to various things. I have been doing the copaxone. will be asking alot, so thought I should introduce myself :)

Welcome Kath,

I have been diagnosed 2 years but probable MS 9 or so years. I will be 50 in August and I think you will find a lot of us get the diagnosis around the big 50.

Hope you find many answers here, it is a great place.

Welcome Kath!

Is it common for MS to run in a family?
