SITTING IN LIMBO

Hello everyone, my name is Sharon I am 52 years old. In the spring of 2005 I went to my Dr. complaining of tingling in my left foot and leg up to the knee. After going through an EEG and finding nothing wrong, he decided it was just an isolated nerve condition and that it would probley just go away on its own. Then he said “I might think MS but you’re too OLD!” Well ...

Hello from beyondms

Hello to everyone on this board,

I am a recent lurker with a lot of experience with MS. I am a 35 year old Montrealer who was diagnosed roughly 10 years ago. I was offered to the opportunity to be part of the CHAMP study giving Avonex to people with a one time episode. I was subsequently diagnosed as definite MS after a bout of optic neuritis. My initial symptoms was a funny feeling in ...

Hello.

Hi,

I don't post much on forums...too lazy/it's too difficult. But, I did want to join so as to not feel so alone.

Hello I am ThePixie also called Elizabeth!

I started a feverish search of this site, because so many other sites are all drug (sorry.. prescription) related. Because I believe in a holistic approach, I needed to find people of like mind. I am 55 and we believe my first symptoms occured (if MS is an auto-immune disorder) 30 years ago and 17 years ago with real venom. So I have relapsed and gotten better until three years ago. None of the ...

Hiya

Im a newbie...I don't have MS but my sister does. We've lived together for about 6 months now cause she got a new job that was close to where I live, and I think she's been diagnosed about a year.

Does MS effect personality cause my sister can be happy and social one minute and then bite people's head's off 5 seconds later. It's got to the point where my room-mate has moved out cause ...

And here's my story

I've read EVERY introduction post. In fact, there's a chance I've read every post in every forum at this wonderful site. Not sure what that sez about me and don't really want to analyze it much. Yikes! I'm 47, female, married with 2 kids and was diagnosed with MS two months ago. I was offered the CRABS only and recently underwent Steriod IV treatment. I'm titrating betaseron and am taking herbal and vitamin supplements. Like ...

Hi all

Just found this site surfing, looks like a good find. 46 F with RRMS. Doing the Avonex thing. To be honest, I hate giving myself shots (hands are numb & ackward) and I don't know how long I will be able to force myself to keep it up. For awhile there I had the excuse of not being able to afford it but God was kind (?) and that problem not an issue at this ...

Introductions

Hello, I'm another newbe to this site. Diagnosed in 2003, (wheelchair dependent). MD's with 2 opinions, one says RRMS now SPMS and the other says PPMS. I have tried all CRAB's, none work. I am now approved for Tysabri and should get 1st infusion soon. This is the best MS site I have found. A lot of good info here and I am looking forward to continued communication and new friendships.
