I may have MS, please help. Sorry Long...

Good afternoon. I know that it takes a while to figure out if MS is the cause, but I have a story to tell. I hope that someone may be able to help me. Sorry that this is long, but I will condense the best I can:

I am 46, male, and from puerto rican decent. I am adopted and didn't know any family history until 4 days ago. I found my brother on Facebook. ...

Hi from NZ. Anyone on Tecfidera and Epilim/Depakote?????

Hi. I was dx in April this year and started Tecfidera three weeks ago. Since then my side effects have been minimal unless I don't eat enough then feel hideous. My major complaint is that I'm putting on weight. I have maintained my weight last three years eating the way I eat now so this is very frustrating. I'm also on Epilim for epilepsy. I'm wondering if anyone out there has experienced the two drugs ...

Hi! New from Canada

Hey everyone!

I'm really looking forward to reading other people's stories, and get and hopefully give some support here. This is all fairly new to me (although I've had some symptoms for apparently a few years and have been passing them off as stress!) Ooops.

This past July, I woke up one morning and had severe pain in my left eye. I didn't do anything for it, and hoped that nature would take it's course. ...

Hey Everyone

I am 34 and I was diagnosed with MS in April. I have already tried Solumedrol and intravenous treatments for three days straight which was tough. The first day was horrible they dripped the steroid for a full hour and the side effects hit me like a pile of bricks. The disgusting metallic taste in my mouth was terrible. I also experienced the dizziness. That first night I couldn't sleep a wink and to make ...

Hi all! Have been looking for a community to hang and vent and thankfully found this site! A little about me. I was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis in the spring of last year after my 2nd occurrence of optic neuritis. First occurrence was in 2014, second in 2015. I started on Plegridy, a 2x/month injection of beta-inferon and have had no relapses over the last year! Woot!

Honestly, the biggest thing for me is ...
