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, ...

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 ...

New guy

I'm 60 years old. I developed vertigo two months ago and ended up in the emergency ward for 4 days. Now I'm on pradaxa for blood clots and propranolol for benign hand tremor. I just finished two rounds of steroids and will start tysabri next week. I read the Starch Solution by Dr McDougall and switched to his diet. I've read other diet gurus but his approach makes the most sense to me.
