My ON eye is twitching

I've had my eyes twitch before, I think we all have, but it worries me that it's in my eye that was affected by optical neuritis. It sort of blurs a tiny bit more when it twitches as well but there is no pain, should I call my neurologist?

Stress factor?

Many people mention stress as a big factor in how their MS affects them. I trade emails with a woman who had her worst flare up when she was away on a business trip and she has tried to stay stress free since then, which has helped. I was just wondering how you try to stay un-stressed(for lack of a better word)? I'm a third year college student and things are really starting to ramp ...

Depression and MS

Hi All

I was just wondering if anyone is taking an antidepressant for MS symptoms. If so do you find it helps to cope better. I am feeling overwhelmed by my symptoms at the moment and I am considering asking my doctor for something. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Finally diagnosed...

Well yesterday at the second neurologist I was finally diagnosed with MS. Since I feel so good(other than my mostly healed optic neuritis in my left eye) I'm really not super upset or worried. They want me to go on either rebif or beta seron, depending on what my insurance covers. I was wondering if I should opt out and participate in the oral beta seron trial. I know I stand the risk of getting ...

Newbie here & at the end of my rope!!!

Hi everyone! I have been struggling for over a year with all kinds of weird symptoms, and finally saw the neuro today. He says I "might" have ms, but more tests are needed. Enough with the tests already!!! My MRI shows 25 lesions located in the periventricular white matter in the subcortical region, and all blood work is normal. My symptoms are as follows: severe ear pain with face numbness, weak right arm, chronically tired, ...

I posted a similar article last week, but this was posted on the NMSS website today. ... h_2007nov5

The abstract:

Prof Giovannoni in the UK is also looking at the role of EBV and MS and is being funded by the UK MS Society (there are similar funded projects in Australia and the US).

Prof Compston, who with Dr Coles are ...

What does this mean?

I had an MRI 10 days ago. My Neuro called today and said no new lesions, but the ones you have are more prominent now. Does "more prominent" mean anything? I'm so confused, please explain if you can.

Birth order and MS

Just an FYI-I am the youngest and my older brothers do not have MS. Wondering where others fall in the birth chain.

A new Canadian study suggests that the youngest children in a family are not less likely than older siblings to develop multiple sclerosis (MS).
This is contrary to the “hygiene hypothesis” whereby being too clean is not a good thing.

According to this theory, infections at an early age train the immune system ...
