New here MS/Lyme diagnosis

Hi everybody! I'm a 39 year old male whose completely confused from all the doctors. After going through a number of symptoms, I tested positive for Lyme disease. However upon visiting my local MS clinic, the doctor believes it's MS. I was treated for Lyme disease, so now I have to wait until October to have another MRI to determine whether or not I still have the legions. While I hold out hope that it's ...

still no diagnosis

Hello today. I introduced myself last summer and am still undiagnosed. ALL tests show nothing. Mostly through the winter I am symptom free, just a minor symptom here and there. Then summer happens.... my neurologist is trying me on Adderall to see if it helps the central nervous system. He says this is just like MS but no proof anywhere. ALS has been mentioned but the symptoms basically go away for the winter. This is ...

Not yet diagnosed, but almost there and very scared

I am 34 and have two young kids. I also have Ankylosing Spondylitis, which is like RA, and neuropathy in my feet, so I already have health problems. I went to the neurologist and she told me that in all likelihood I have MS, I just have to get an MRI to confirm it.

Fresh Diagnosis, still reeling, drug options, cure soon?

Hello, my name is Max. I'm a 37 year old male in San Diego with a fresh MS diagnosis as of last week. Everything I suspect so far makes it seem relapsing. I've always been active and relatively healthy with diet and exercise. I'm not sure what my future holds. I have a very supportive and loving wife which I'm happy to have more than ever. No children, but I do have a needy cat ...

Newly Diagnosed, not new to this suffering

Hi. I was diagnosed one month ago today, but suspect I've had this disease for at least nine years and possibly a lot longer, maybe even more than 20 years when I was still in the military. I would get sick and tired and clumsy for awhile and it would get better, but each time it came back it was worse. The first time I partially lost vision was nine years ago. I also have ...

Hello ThisIsMS

Hello Folks,
My first post. I've been considering joining a site like this and finally decided to do it. I was diagnosed about 3 years ago. Had many 'episodes' before that where I would have numbness. Fell down a couple of times. I finally woke up one morning and my shoulder was throbbing. Went to the doctor and they advised to go to a surgeon. Long story short, I had a shoulder surgery after an ...
