Hi everyone nyd, could valium have been masking my symptoms

Hi all first time posting here. I recently stumbled across an ms wiki page while looking for reasons my back might of been spasming and tingling and feeling a weird sort of numbness. I was horrified as the more I read the more I realised I had so so so many of the symptoms associated with ms that I had just ignored and put down to other logical explanation. I promptly went to my gp ...

New - undiagnosed - scared...

Hi all,

I posted my basic story over http://www.thisisms.com/forum/undiagnosed-f54/topic27057.html, so I won't repeat it all. But in a nutshell, I've been having numbness in my arms and legs (and part of my torso). Some of this may be unrelated - for instance, I think the pain in my arms is more likely due to a radiculopathy than anything MS, in large part because it's mostly in discrete fingers that relate to specific nerves, but I ...

I am 42 years old, am a wife and a mother of 3 daughters: a 20 year old, a 17 year old...and wait for it...a 4 ...

New almost-diagnosed progressive MS

Hi folks -

I've been lurking for a while and rummaging through all this great info. What an amazing resource.

So I'm 57, female, and have more than 30 brain lesions. (I'm tempted to throw in my astrological sign and list of pet peeves here.) Two years ago I suddenly had trouble with balance, walking and continence. My GP and I assumed it was that bad lumbar disc, and tried McKenzie exercises, physical therapy and ...

Then I the first big MS attack happened, and I ...
