Hello from Florida

I am a 32 year old female and have been reading posts on this site for over a year now, but never felt the need to become a member thinking that I would surpass diagnosis (since I have been having symptoms on and off for 4 years). I feel I am getting close to a diagnosis of something, and based on my DR's opinion, I won't be surprised to hear it is MS.

Hello

I do not have MS but am affected everyday by it. My wife of 12 years was diagnosed with MS over 17 years ago. By the time I had met her, she was already quite a few years into the Swank MS Diet and had gone through a few really rough years.

She has been blind 4 times, lost total feeling in almost every area of her body at one time or another, had bladder ...

Hello! Newbie here!

I first developed Optic Neuritis in my R eye in April and in October I developed a number of other symptoms which can be summed up as my ...

I guess I am somewhat fortunate. I only had one episode, Nov/Dec 2006, with some slight numbing of my left hand fingertips and the left side of my mouth, and that is about it. It hung ...

Hello from Romania

My name is Petru from Romania.
I am 47 and I was diagnosed with MS in 1985
My initial diagnosis was RRMS, I had optic neuritis in my right eye.
Now I have SPMS
I currently take Betaseron from 2005 and lots of vitamins
I have four sons, 26, 24, 19 & 17. I hope and pray they never get MS, but if they do, at least there are better treatments today.
I'm really happy ...
