Not new to MS but can't find a stable job

Hello all I am in my fourth year of having MS and cannot find a stable job. I have a contract job that I can go back to in about 5 weeks. The bad thing is that it is shifts which somehow I handled it and called in when my legs were feeling weak. My last 4 months I was forced to work on a different crew and was no happy because I had to ...

Diagnosed today

Hi all,

As per the subject title, I was diagnosed with MS today and have joined the board in order to read others stories, share stories, and enlighten myself on MS and the treatments available.

In 2009, I had woken up one morning and felt that I was going blind. My vision was blurry in both eyes. If I was to use my peripheral vision, or to turn my head to the left, my right ...

New to MS forums...

This is my first MS forum I've ever been on, so I don't really know what to expect. My mother, a nurse, was diagnosed with MS-relapsing/remitting in December of 2009. I was 18 years old and a freshman in college so I didn't really care/understand what this diagnosis was going to mean for my family. I'm now 22 years old and a month away from graduating from nursing school. I'm now MUCH more aware of ...

Still Awaiting Diagnosis

On February 9th my whole world change. I woke up that morning realizing my legs had been replaced with a ton of lead.

I was unable to move my legs for 3 days. My legs became, like the sword in the stone, every doctor and nurse tried to move them but no one was strong enough, to even get them to move a millimeter.

By day four I was finally able to get my legs ...

Newbie

Hello I am new,

I am a transfer from the MSWorld board. I was just booted off the board because I said something to the likes of "you should stop working if your MS symptoms could injure someone on your job". :confused: There is some kind of agenda with that board. I'm taking a chance with this forum, hoping it is a safe haven to talk.

About ...

Newb. :-)

Good morning... I found this forum last week and it's already been super helpful. I have not been diagnosed but I've been to the doctor and posting in that forum, so it's a work in progress.

I am 30 years old, a mom to a 5 year old, and I play roller derby, belly dance, ride a motorcycle, and enjoy the quieter aspects of my life as well, haha.

I'm also in the process of ...

NEW... Confused... Scared... Broke... need advice

Hello Everyone,

I posted 2 or 3 times before, but never here because I don't know what's wrong with me. When I had my 1 and only attack it was 2002 and no one else in the family had MS. That changed about 6 years later. I now have a 1st cousin who has MS. A year ago he was put on Adderall. I asked why. He said a certain neurologist who has MS himself ...

Introduction, learned a bit, hungry for something new

The very first MS symptom that I noticed practically scared me out of my skin.

As I drifted into actual sleep and genuinely lost consciousness, a violent hip flexor sort of spasm would hit my body and ruin the moment.

At first, I assessed it as a side effect of an exposure to PVC plastic. Cutting some of that to make a clothing rack resulted in a faceful of the dust from it.

That happened ...
