New to this forum and new to MS.

Hello all, my name's Heather and I'm twenty-three years old. I was diagnosed with MS on May of '14. The last few months have been something of an adaption period for me. I was utterly devastated when I got the diagnosis and it didn't work out all that gracefully due to some poor healthcare experiences, etc. In fact I still couldn't really explain to you what MS is other than an autoimmune disorder in ...

Every test but brain MRI neg for MS, Neuro still wants to Dx

Hi Everyone,

New here and in a weird situation. Of course, we all are, but mine seems like the inverse of most people's stories and I don't know what to think!

A year ago I had a sudden hearing loss in left ear. I was supposed to get an MRI but blew it off b/c of other health issues I was dealing with. A couple months ago my PCP insisted I have one. The result ...

Hello all

Hello all,

My name is Hope and I am a 33 year old female. Last Sunday I experienced, what felt like to me, electrical shooting pain (which took my breath away, due to the intensity of it) which shot up my whole left side of my body and it lasted for 3 to 4 seconds. This pain again struck me two more times on Monday night, once while standing and once while lying down in ...

new diagnosis- fast diagnosis

Since I read this forum a few times a week, I figured I may as well register and introduce myself!
I'm 34 and was diagnosed after a whirlwind of less than 6 months of symptoms. On May 29, I was walking across the parking lot at work when my feet both suddenly went numb, as if they were asleep. The tingling persisted for days…then weeks..and random other symptoms started happening. Numb spots on my ...

Finally Diagnosed with MS

Hi All!

My name is Natalie and I am 30, from Tucson, AZ. I was officially diagnosed with MS about a month ago. The diagnosis was actually a relief for me, and I strangely felt happy when I got the news.

Not that I am happy to have MS, but I first started having symptoms 10 years ago when I was 20. I was attending college in TN and one day started feeling numbness in ...

Hello..New Here and Recently Diagnosed

Hello Everyone,

Though I have been "lurking" for quite some time, this is my first official post. You all share such great information and it has helped me tremendously. I have suspected for quite sometime that I have had MS, but just recently had it confirmed...finally..thank goodness by an MS Specialist. My first neurologist was a mess in that he misread my lumbar puncture. I had 9 oligoclonal bands and an elevated Igg Index and ...

Time to throw the ball out of the pram !

I'm looking at the Aubagio tablets wondering whether to take the plunge, shall I take it tonight or the morning, after 3 years of uncertainty and then a diagnosis I'm heading into yet more uncertain territory and quite frankly I'm ready to throw my ball out of the pram. My body seems to have its own agenda and not invited me to the party which I am finding very inconvenient and frustrating and now just ...
