New members should feel free to introduce themselves here

I'm new to this. So: Hello! To everyone!

I'm showing the common signs of having MS. It's going to be a rough time to even get some tests done to see if I'm positive for having MS. There is a free clinic in my city that I can go to, but they only call you back when they are testing for what you have or think you have. I do not have any kind of insurances; state or otherwise. I don't work either. ...

Maybe MS. Maybe not. Either way I'm new here!

Hi folks!

My name is Lisa and I'm a 25 year old brand spanking new to a management career, just finished my masters and now I'm told I might have MS. The doctors kind of fluctuate, I think depending on their mood of the day, about whether or not I have MS. I have been diagnosed by several doctors and then told I was misdiagnosed by others. That makes it really hard to feel like ...

A Warm Hello

A warm hello to the group!

I wanted to introduce myself and officially join the community. I came here as a visitor searching for information and found a lot of great advice for people at all stages of diagnosis and treatment.

For me, I'm entering my 4th year in limbo land. Finances and pre-existing condition exclusions made that period longer than it needed to be, but I'm getting closer to a diagnosis now. The worst ...

Diagnosis MS

Hi I am new to this but have been diagnosed with MS for a year. My diagnosis was made as a complete surprise, I went to ER with a really bad headache and numbness in my left arm.

F/26, Newly Diagnosed 11-1-2013, on Gilenya

Hi! I've had my diagnosis for a month and a half; I've been on Gilenya for two weeks, and I'm female, happily married, and 26 years old.

I was reluctant to join a message board; I was afraid it would be just a lot of symptom comparing, like one person says "my legs are so weak I can hardly walk," and another person responds, "oh, that's nothing - my legs are so weak I can't ...

How were you told of your Dx?

My neuro called after my MRI brain and LS spine. Despite the fact that I saw the films and read the report (didn't seem too significant other than some tumors on my L5 and S2 and S3) she called and asked me to come in on Christmas Eve to "talk." This is the first time in six years that she has done this. I am worried to say the least. Should I be? How were ...

Had an MRI in 2010 with nothing really unusual. This one I had today showed a bunch of white spots. I attached the photo. Hope it's not too big. Does anyone have any ...
