Anyone in the Phoenix area?? I have ms symptoms

Hello! This is my first time posting to this forum. I am 37 years old and may have MS. Three years ago I started having a lot of muscle pain, trouble walking and confusion. My OBGYN sent me to see a Rheumatologist. The rheumy diagnosed me immediately with RA, although I had no joint swelling. The only thing abnormal on my blood work was a very high c-reactive protein (inflammation). I trusted the doctor and ...

Research could pave way for more effective drugs to treat inflammation

Six Case Western Reserve scientists are part of an international team that has discovered two compounds that show promise in decreasing inflammation associated with diseases such as ulcerative colitis, arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The compounds, dubbed OD36 and OD38, specifically appear to curtail inflammation-triggering signals from RIPK2 (serine/threonine/tyrosine kinase 2).

I have been in the care of a neurologist for about 7 years for severe migraines but had never had an MRI. Last week, I learned through an MRI intended to confirm osteoarthritis in my neck (which was thought to be making my migraines worse) that I had a C4 lesion. Two days later an MRI with contrast showed a cluster of bright lesions on my brain in an early Dawson Finger pattern that I ...

halos around lights at night

anybody else have any experience with this? My biggest issue so far has been optic neuritis. But I haven't had an episode in seven years. About a month before the ON attack, I started seeing halos around lights at night--usually parking lot lights or traffic lights.

While the ON never fully resolved, the halos went away fairly quickly. NOW, I am pretty worried that I am seeing halos again, and have been for several weeks ...
