New Diagnosis

Hello everyone,

I'm was diagnosed with MS on June 20. It's been a real shock, because although I've had problems with extreme fatigue, weakness, muscle aches, twitches, blurred vision, dizziness, and difficulty with concentration and memory, and have been worked up for everything under the sun in the last five years, (or so I thought), nobody ever mentioned MS. I went to the doctor in June with what I thought was the worst sinus headache ...

Hello... yet another new diagnosee (?)

Hello all,
I am 32 years old and live in Maryland. At the end of March, I was admitted to the hospital because my doctor and my neurologist thought I might have had menangitis. I didn't, actually. Instead they found some lesions on my brain and ran me through 7 days of tests. They checked for strokes, heart disease, lyme diesease, and MS. I had two spinal taps (they didn't have enough fluid from the ...

Seattle girl....recently diagnosed

Allo all!
My name is Michele and I was diagnosed at the end of April, after a 3-year battle with a HORRIBLE neurologist. I know these stories are a dime a dozen with all of us, but I’m still so frustrated with the way I was diagnosed I just feel compelled to share….

Hi,

My name is Nicole. I was just diagnosed with MS a few days ago.

Friday I was in her office staring at 3 lesions and talking about whether or not I wanted to start medication. She's giving me the option so I guess that's good. She said ...

Diagnosed with MS, two years ago; I have been a most difficult patients for all of the neurologists that I've seen (four total) since I refuse to even try CRABS. Am so glad to be in good company with some on this forum.

The Long and Winding Road - Hi Everyone!

Hi everyone,

My name's Craig and I was diagnosed about 5 years ago. I turned 26 in May, and I live in the Toronto area.

I started Rebif-44 shortly after my diagnosis, and it kept me pretty stable for about 3.5 years, then things went downhill. All of a sudden I lost sensation in some of my fingers, developed some heat sensitivity, and had some gait issues.

After these symptoms I looked into complementary treatments. ...
