Hi folks...I too have MS actually PPMS

I have been watching this site for roughly 6 mos. I found this site by googling Dawsons Fingers. Otherwise I would not have found this site. I'm passing the word! I find the group forums exciting, knowlegeable and very friendly.

I was originally mis- diagnosed w/ RRMS in 2000. at that time my symptoms were not severe and the Neuro went with the stats. 80% of the MS pop have RRMS and the rest = ...

Hi I'm new and on the undiagnosed roller coaster

Hi There,
I had posted this under the "general discussion" but thought it may be more appropriate here so please excuse me if you have already read this before.
Let me explain a bit about myself. I am a 38 yo man with a loving wife and 2 wonderful children. In 2004 i had a 1 off session. It started with a really strange sensation in my head. What followed was like a seizure (but ...

New from Britain, Diagnosed 5 years.

Have been reading this site, and will continue to do so, really informative. Dx 5 years ago and up until last Saturday worked and limped along ok. Woke up last Saturday and havent really been mobile since, agony to walk and not been to work. Really hoping I can get back to where I was at. My back hurts and I think lugging the dead leg around has taken its toll. I do have an ...

New member

Hello everyone. I've just signed up to the site. I am a Brit living in the San Francisco bay area. I was diagnosed with MS in 2005. To date I have been very fortunate - my MS has been relatively benign with only infrequent relapses. I went on Tysabri when I was first diagnosed but only had 1 infusion before it was pulled from the market following the first PML report. Since then I have ...

Can I just say that MS sucks?! Got my official diagnosis January 6th, this year. I was relieved then shocked...upset, mad, and not so sure what to think now. Maybe I'm floating into the realm of acceptance?! Do you ever really accept it?

I've only had 2 real episodes. The first was in the spring just prior to going out of town so I didn't see my doc. The second was Optic Neuritis over summer ...

Hello Intro

Hello, :D
I'm new here, but in my 6th year with MS. I have chosen diet BBD (5-years) as my method of dealing with the disease and I am doing very well. I work full time, travel, etc. I have not used any meds yet.

I've posted to the NMSS board for quite some time. I joined this board because I was happy to see others ...

New, and Terrified

Hello all.

I'm new to the site, and a little bit (read: a lot) terrified at the moment, while I try to reach out and find some answers for myself regarding MS. I just returned home from a three day hospital stay where 99% diagnosis was made for MS. No lesions found on brain in contrast and non-contrast MRI; pending C-spine MRI (as they think it's originating there, or possibly brain stem) and neuro-ophthalmology assessment ...
