newest memeber :) Please Read

Hello Everyone.

I am a 22 year old male from Toronto Ontario newly diagnosed in June of last year (2006). With no family history of MS it just hit me out of the blue. It started with a tingling sensation in my left hand. Doctors said it was just a pinched nerve and it will go away. About a month later the numbness was still present and started in my right hand. Shortly after that ...

SE NC US

Hi,
I was diagnosed in March 2005, RRMS. Like a lot of people on this site I'd had vague symptoms for years before the doctors made the official verdict. I seem to be on this weird "10-year" exacerbation schedule.
I still have lots of small things that occur, physically, but no major disability yet. I am mostly concerned with cognitive function, or what I consider the lack therof.
Began Avonex in June '06. The side ...

New but have been around the block

Hello all. I live in CT, USA, and was diagnosed 5/4/06 with MS. My MS has not been labelled as I only had one episode just prior to diagnosis that made me bed ridden. I haven't had any further exacerbations/episodes. My doctors and I have treated this with high dose antibiotics and vitamin supplements for 10 months now. I did use Betaseron for 1.5 months and then quit as no advantage was found - only ...

Hello from MA

At the beginning of Nov '06, I woke up one day with numbness in my legs, they worked fine, they were just numb. I thought I had possibly slept wrong etc.... But after a few days I mentioned it to my husband and he insisted I see my doctor. After meeting with my doctor, and having her consult a neurologist it was decided that blood work and an MRI would be done ASAP. When I ...

In Morocco

Hi,
I came here to teach English, which is working out alright.. A couple months ago, I became constantly dizzy, and I have since developed a few other symptoms. I am pretty depressed, tired all the time, sometimes can't speak, etc etc.. Seems sort of like whining to list these all but I suppose it's a good thing to do. Talk soon then.

Yours,
Matt

Hi!

Hi to everybody here!

I've read a few threads on this board now and then over the years but never got around to joining.

I already belong to several MS message boards, and I've been on them for 5 or 6 years.

This place looks nice, and I hope to take part in some discussions here.

I was diagnosed with SPMS many years ago. I was on Avonex for 3 years but had to stop ...
