New member with questions

Hi, I’ve just joined due to my daughter’s recent MS diagnosis. She mainly experiences eye issues at this time and has had different eye symptoms (double vision, feels like she’s seeing things through a kaleidoscope, etc.)off and on for years. After seeing 3 ophthalmologists and 2 neurologists she finally has a diagnosis that is not pertaining to anxiety.

I am not diagnosed with MS but would like to know other member’s experiences. (I have read ...

My journey began in August 2018 when I finally went to my PCP for a chief complaint of insomnia, extreme fatigue and leg spasms. He diagnosed me with RLS and prescribed Mirapex, which helped a little. I’ll give him credit for allowing extra time for my appointment and listening to all of my additional symptoms and ordering blood work.

Hello Everyone

I am a 63 year old married man who was diagnosed with MS about five years ago even though I realize now that I have experienced the symptoms and have actually had the disease since very early in my life. After three brain MRIs, the lesions are not changing and no more are developing and that is good news for me. The brain damage that has been done is not likely to become worse for ...

Looking for advice

Hi there!

I'm new to the forum and just wanted to generally introduce myself as well as give me history and ask for some opinions.

New here!


I am new here, but not to MS. I was dx in 2002, with RRMS.
I just had my hip replaced 2 months ago, and it has been a slice of hell. I know that MS has made my recovery more difficult. The fatigue from surgery, plus the usual MS fatigue. Add monthly hormones, and there's my slice.
BTW, I am a 44 year ...
