Long term MS, less than a year with Official Dx

Hello all,

Forums have been a valuable resource, providing loads of information, but have not entirely helped with my conflicted feelings and ambivalence towards having MS.

I was Officially Diagnosed about eight months ago, ultimately by two unaffiliated neurologists. I have "a great many lesions," but have had a (mostly) benign history of symptoms, and have exhibited few signs during neurological exams. This is changing now as I reach my early 60's. I believe I ...

Introduction from cath

Hi everyone,

I've had relapsing-remitting MS for around 36 years, but I was only correctly diagnosed around 17 years ago after suffering a severe exacerbation. Mostly I've been fortunate to enjoy a good quality of life even though I've never taken medication for MS.

I joined this forum out of a feeling of gratitude to those whose ideas and advice have helped me live a normal life. I'm grateful to the MS support group I ...

New to the concept of chronic illness

Hi everyone, Mark here, new to MS and to the whole concept of chronic illness. Developed optic neuritis about four years ago, it went away, sat with the "possible demyelinating disorder" diagnosis for years, then three months ago noticed an intention tremor and couldn't feel my legs. In an area with public health care so the wait for an MRI was going to be six months. Ended up in hospital for a month due to ...

My sister was just diagnosed

Hello, everyone. Came here looking for answers and support. My 55-year old sister has just been diagnosed with MS. She is not computer savvy and so would not go on forums like this on her own. I am really freaked out by her symptoms, which have been falling (total muscle failure), seizures, violent tremors, periods where she could not speak coherently, or walk. (but even on good days she uses a cane to walk). Thankfully, ...

Long scary journey

I am a 62 female who for 8 years or longer have had strange symptoms that's say MS. My doctor has told me for years it is stress. Well a few months back I quit my stressful job as 1.

New to this

I’m recently diagnosed with ms and have no idea how to get through the day without crying at least once. The only thing that keeps me going is my goal of weighing 100 pounds and getting 50000 steps a day. I have/had my dream job. I know once they find out I’ll be fired. I see my neurologist tomorrow to see what drugs I’ll be on and I’m terrified of the side effects from them. ...

Hi Friends *waves shyly*

I am new to the forum, but since I keep coming back to here I figured I should join the community. I was dx'd with RRMS about six months ago. The odd bit about me I guess is that I'm a transgender woman; I had been taking anti-androgens and estradiol for gender transition for a little over a year prior to my MS dx. They found the MS because I had a flare of uveitis ...
