Homeless With MS

Hello,

I received my diagnosis of MS a couple of years ago after struggling with symptoms for many years. The tipping point was optic neuropathy in 2011 which led to an MRI of the brain.

Newly diagnosed with MS in AZ, Hello!

Hello, while trying desperately to find out the source and treatment for horrible migraines, I found out that I had a really bad issue with my neck, C5 and C6 and needed surgery, subsequent MRIs showed that I also had MS. My neurosurgeon at Barrows in Phoenix will not operate on my neck until my MS is under control. I just started Copaxone yesterday. It has taken some time because when all this came out ...

New to the site and new to MS

Hello my fellow MS havers (or whatever we are calling ourselves)

I'm 37, and was diagnosed in October. I t was a normal day in the office and my feet went numb. Although it was annoying, I pretty much avoided it. As days went on, the numbness spread through my shins and eventually all the way up into my stomach and small of my back.

I really had no idea what was going on so ...

I want to learn as much as I can before then so I can make ...
