New to the site and new to MS

Hello my fellow MS havers (or whatever we are calling ourselves)

I'm 37, and was diagnosed in October. I t was a normal day in the office and my feet went numb. Although it was annoying, I pretty much avoided it. As days went on, the numbness spread through my shins and eventually all the way up into my stomach and small of my back.

I really had no idea what was going on so ...

New to the Forum


I wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I joined the forum so I can learn more about MS and maybe ask some questions. I recently had an MRI which might indicate MS or at least lead to some more testing. I have a copy of the report and see my specialist in a few weeks to discuss it. I want to learn as much as I can before then so I can make ...

New and scared.

Hi. My name is Kimberly, and I was just diagnosed with MS. About three weeks ago, I woke up & couldn't see from my right eye. I went to the eye doctor, who thought I had some swelling in my eye, but told me it was nothing to worry about and sent me home with contacts and a return appointment in one week. A week later life, my vision was worse so he sent me ...

Hello and wanting feedback

Hi Everyone

I am feeling over whelmed at the moment because I've been feeling terrible for 6 weeks. It is really wearing me down.

12 years ago I was in London and woke up one morning in massive amounts of widespread pain, boiling hot and stiff everywhere and throbbing through all of my muscles and joints. I can feel my entire body, every inch of it. I ended up going back home to Australia and ...

Went back to the neuro, ...

Making treatment decisions - new to the forum

Hi, just signed up as I'm looking for some input/support on choosing a treatment option, I have rrms but have been told it's fast acting so I 'shouldn't delay' starting treatment. They have offered me the option of basically anything available (UK) but are pushing towards Tysabri or Lemtrada both of which seem to have fairly terrifying side effect potential.
Would appreciate anyone's personal experiences having taken either of the above and how you actually ...
