If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.


Hi there!! I'm new, obviously... and my name is Jen. I had my first symptom at 14, diagnosed at 15. Now that I'm 2 months away from being 20, my last visit with my neuro was a little odd for me. He told me that I might have NMO because I have inflamation in my spine, so I'm sitting on pins and needles for my results. Does anybody else have MS and NMO? I'm so ...

Brain lesions vs. spinal cord lesions

I'm new here, so forgive me if this has been covered before...
My neuro said he was more concerned about my spinal /neck lesions than the ones in my brain. He said that the brain ones were in an "insignificant place", but his face fell when he discussed the spinal/neck ones. This was about 13 months ago and I'm still walking and talking...I mean, did he want to imply impending doom, or what? I'm due ...

Gardasil (HPV vaccine) can lead to MS

I suspect that my daughter's inoculation with the HPV vaccine has caused her, a previously healthy, active 15 year old, to develop MS (at first thought to be ADEM). Any thoughts?
