I have had the worst two weeks of my life - PERIOD. I hurt my back roughly two weeks ago after I realized my lower body was getting fairly weak. I went to the gym and did a lot of exercises to strengthen it only to find I had lost a TON of muscle strength in a month. I had been in a car accident three months prior and blamed it on this.

Well my ...

New - MS Spectrum

Hello All,

I've been lurking for a while and decided that I'd like some company on this journey from folks who understand.

While I've had unexplained stuff for years, my first episode was a year and a half ago -- life hasn't been the same since. A couple of months ago my 3rd episode started (tight but gumby legs with difficulty walking, weakness, balance problems, buzzing/tingling/prickling in the legs/arms/torso, nerve pain in legs, slurring, hardcore ...

My husband was just preliminarily diagnosed with MS.

I confess...I KNOW NOTHING about the condition. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that, but I suppose you never bother to learn about something until it becomes a part of your sphere...and then, you can't learn quickly enough!

My husband has had problems with numbness and tingling for years...but the doctors always assumed that was due to his spinal fusion, and a worsening condition.

Yes, another New Member

Hello all!

I have been surfing these message boards over the past week or so since my RRMS diagnosis. I am a 47 year old female with two children (ages 6 and 9) and a very supportive husband. It appears from the MRI, historical symptoms and medical history, that I have had this for some time. I have no active lesions and I am starting to feel better and the bad symptoms are starting to ...
