Seeking advice on how to proceed (symptoms suggestive of MS)

It's always difficult to post something like this, but i'll try as i could use a bit of support and advice.
I have been having MS like symptoms for about three years, but they were always mild and i was in graduate school as they were progressing but didn't have time for anything other than school if you know what i mean.
I have another condition known as primary spinal stenosis which also progressed at ...

New and wanted to say thanks!

Hi everyone! This is absolutly the best forum out there for people with MS and their families. Thank you so much for all you do with the moderation and all the extremely intelligent MS material/research. I am 30 years old and was diagnosed with MS 3 years ago.

New to this site

Hi all,

I backed into this site thru Marc's Wheelchair Kamikaze site and am glad I did.

I've had ms for 12 years, diagnosed in 4 days with double vision, my only symptom ever. I was on copaxone for 8 1/2 years before I started having rumblings of ms symptoms and when nothing made them remit, I was classified as sp and went downhill very quickly.

I am now in a power chair, and have ...

I've read all kinds of forum's, no ones mentioned it. Symptoms began this Feb. 'Wooden' arms & feet, very clumsy, uncoordinated, etc. So far I've had 2MRI's, 3 CT's, 1 ...

My Mom was dx about 15 years ago after possibly having MS for 15 years prior. I have watched her struggle and been scared to death that the same thing would be my fate. I am 35 and in my late 20s I started working out obsessively ...
