Hello Everyone!

I am new here and so happy to have found this board. I was dx'd with m.s. 3 yrs ago and have always been suspicious of a chronic infection link to my m.s.

I used to lurk on Lyme Disease boards, as my symptoms were so similar.
I had painful inflammation of both knees limiting my mobility 2 yrs before my m.s. dx. Doc's always downplayed the significance.

After a neg. Lyme titer test, I ...

Hi all - New here....

I've been diagnosed since March of this year.

Optic Neuritis seems to be the attack of choice for me. I've had it twice, and I'm not sure, but it's possible that as of yesterday, I'm working on my third!

I've been on Betaseron since May, in fact, I am in a clinical study for Beta, comparing standard dose, double dose, and Copaxone to see which works best. I'm on Beta but I don't know what ...

OK, so I'm new and I don't know what I am doing.

and I am up and it's late - again - and I still don't have a Dx to know what's really going on. I am really suffering the last few days and I feel like I have no one to talk to.

I started this year pretty well untill a few months ago, when I had a severe nerve injury in my right foot. It just didnt seem to heal, and then it seemed like ...

Vitamin D

I have another question: Does anyone know how much Vitamin D we're supposed to have daily? Does that amount fluctuate depending on the time of year?

Feeling fatigued!

Hi, everyone:

I was diagnosed with RRMS in January, 2003. I've had a very mild case of MS with no relapses since I was diagnosed. BUT, this summer I have been noticing feeling VERY sleepy and weak in body--this is the first time I've struggled with this problem. I had some blood work done, and my white blood cell count was low. Could this be the culprit? I'm on Betaseron, and I'm wondering if it ...

Hello to you all

Hi there

I was diagnosed in Feb/March this year, after 5 years with a deteriorating leg, and of course foot drop. 8O

It's not so bad - I can walk a bit but I limit myself, and the foot drop is something I watch carefully. My limp is only noticable when I am tired or I have had a few!!

I have been on the Swank diet ...

Body by Jake


Good to meet you. Your fears are my fears - I often make lists of all the things that I won't (or don't think) I'll be doing with my five year old son that I planned to do (teach him tennis, scuba diving, go camping). And the worse thing is watching all the smoking / beer-bellied dads who turn up to my son's (and their son's) football (soccer in the US) each week. The ...

Hello. I'm new here too. This is a really neat site!! I appreciate all the info that's posted and the articles and research. I was diagonsed with MS 2 years ago this month. I was 28 years old. I have RRMS and I'm still trying to get use to it. It's been up and down, but I'm starting to accept it. I'm glad to be part of a community of people who know MS and ...
