Hello,

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 ...

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.

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 ...
