Hello from Canada, eh!

Hello hello.

Will keep this short. Have PPMS that hit pretty quickly. Symptoms started 2009 (EDSS of 6.0 within months), official diagnosis in 2012. I'm now at about 6.5 and thinking of tricking out my rollator -- racing stripes! custom rims! :lol:

I'm pretty upbeat and positive but without the "woo" factor. I'm a very realistic person when it comes to my future, but it shouldn't be ...

Caregiver for 12+ years

My name is Laura. I've been a caregiver for my husband James for over 12 years. His first onset was November 2001 - ON. We had a 4 1/2 month old son, his first newborn (and only), my fourth. It took 15 months for an official DX. The last 3 years MS has taken its toll physically. As we wait and hope for SSDI, we're trying not to be evicted and pay the bills. At ...

Confused of MS diagnosis


Reading MS report and confused about the conclusion:

"At least 7 focal white matter lesions are scattered throughout the blah blah..fulfilling McDonald criteria for MS....
However there is no contrast enhancement of these lesions to confirm a newly developed lesion or previous imaging available for comparison to confirm dissemination in time. Clinical review and ongoing imaging follow up therefore is recommended to further confirm the suspected diagnosis of MS"

Struggling with new MS symptoms

Hi. I'm new so please bare with me. I'm a 37 y/o single female with no children. I was diagnosed with RRMS 17 years ago at age 20. Fell at home one day and started having spasms down right side of my body and was terrified. Went through multiple neurologists telling me they didn't know what it could be when one finally suspected and diagnosed MS after spinal tap and the MRIs.

I went from ...

17 years - no diagnosis

At age 25, I had a sudden onset of severe fatigue which lasted 3 years. Gradually, it improved and my MD said I'd had an acute EBV infection and CFS. Thrilled to be in remission at age 29, I proceeded to engage in a strenuous exercise program to lose the 35 lbs I'd gained. I worked my way up to a 3 mile daily run, weightlifting and tennis on weekends. By age 31, I'd shrunk ...

Hi from Chocolate City, USA!

I'm 51 and have been diagnosed (Relapsing-Remitting) for just over 3 years. I also had a mild stroke in 2007 and two back surgeries (2011 and 2012) and a current herniated disc. Am in the last steps now before finally getting a pain pump implanted. I have two cats; one of them saved my life when I had the stroke and will reach up with his paw to brush away my tears when I cry. ...
