Diagnosis

Hello

Can anyone tell me how they were initially diagnosed with ms, what were the symptoms?

I have been suffering with dizziness for about 2 weeks now. I thought it would be an ear infection but the doctor said it wasn't and did some blood tests which all came back normal. Would anything show up in blood tests?

I have no other symptoms other than dizzyness and a 'fuzzy head' The dizzyness is usually worse ...

Hello, once again...

Hi all.

I have been a (silent) member of this group a few years ago for a very brief period of time and I am back, once again with a new nick. Once again, I intend to be quiet because I am over depressed and I don't want to "infect" anybody else with my suicidal thoughts.

I am male, 28, with MS since 17 and maybe earlier. I used to be ambulatory, but a year ...

Controlled My MS for 6 Years

Hi all,
It is good to be part of this forum.
I was diagnosed six years ago. No doubt my story is the same as most when dealt such a bombshell. I am sure there are those worse off than myself and we all know what a horrible disease MS is. I guess I was and still am lucky. I have never been able to accept how I should have this disease and set about ...

The ‘bad’ news is symptom don’t lie. I’ve had many precursors: Epstein Barr virus/about 20 yrs ago...lasted for over a year. Two separate week long bouts of vertigo.

Both me and my x-husband have MS

I've looked at this site before, but just decided tonight to sign up. My former husband and I have both been diagnosed with MS. He, ten years before me. I haven't seen any posts on here about that.

We have a daughter, so of course I'm more concerned now about her risk.

Does anyone know more couples like this? My story is long, but if you want to read about it, just let me know. ...

New to MS

Hi,

I'm new to the world of MS and prior to my diagnosis I was a pretty active guy. I'm the guy who carries 20 bags of groceries up the stairs with his 3 year old on his shoulders - if you know what I mean.

I'm finding it hard to that these days. In fact, I'm finding that every time I do anything remotely "active" (a brisk walk, a 20 foot run for the ...

Hi~

Newly diagnosed on 10/08 and just getting over the initial shock...

I have just started Copaxone 4 days ago.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Loobie, I see you are from Dayton. I am moving there this July to finish my clinical years and to do my residency at Kettering/Grandview. Never been there before; I'll have to find out from you the good places to live!
