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 ...

brain biopsy anyone?

Gp says I have MS, but Neuro is still saying possible MS. I have a large lesion (2cm) in my brain (was thought to be a tumor, but biopsy proved it's a lesion) Anybody else here need to have surgery to rule out a tumor? 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 ...

Hi all...

I've been lurking for a while and decided that this is the time to post...

So...here's the thing...I just finished this book and found it to be very ...

Hello I too am recently diagnost, Help!

Well actually I had an MRI w/out contrast and they found some lesions so now I am on to an MRI w/contrast and possibly more tests after that. 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 ...

Loobies Mom

Hi, I'm Nell, Loobies Mom. Many of you probably know Lewis as he tells me he has communicated through this site many times. He has asked me to be his advocate and I, of course, agreed with much enthusiasm. It feels very good to be able to do something really constructive. I have raised money, cried, prayed, and hoped beyond hope that everything he tried would work miracles. It's tough being the Mom of an ...

New to this site

Hi everyone. I'm new to this site. I'm 28 and was diagnosed in October on 2007. I knew what was wrong before doctors would confirm. It took a month to get that confirmation. I was already on to dealing with it.

Anyway, I have a 2.5 year old son, am married, haven't had a relapse and am on Copaxone. We are thinking of having another baby. Any encouragement or any advise? My next neuro appointment ...

Greetings from DE/PA

Hello everyone. I just joined this site in the hopes of getting some sort of help and support. I don't personally have MS, but my mother does, and she doesn't have computer/internet access, so I'm here "in place" of her. I hope that's OK.

I don't have all the details, as talking about her problems to her own son isn't something she enjoys doing (or does well without tears), but here's a brief history:

Many ...

Hi from Cali


Hello - I just found this site and thought I would check it out.

I've been dx'd w/RRMS since July of 03; according to my Neuro - he believes I had episodes dating back to 1994.

I spent a few years with 'mysterious' symptoms that would appear and disappear and the docs could never figure it out. Some of the possible dx were Petite Mal Seizures, Tendonitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, sore muscles, stress and I'm sure ...
