New here, scared, lots of questions

Hi everyone!

I'm so happy to have found these boards. I'll try to keep this as short as possible.

I had optic neuritis in 2009. It resolved and, while I had an MRI that showed a couple of v. small lesions, the neuro said they were more typical of migraine and that was that. My vision was restored.

In 2010 I had weight loss surgery (sleeve gastrectomy, not a bypass) and had felt terrific for ...

haven't been here in a while so let me reintroduce myself

Hello everybody,

I run a activity group for people with MS in New York City (surprisingly there wasn't one anywhere in the tri-state area) and if you're interested please do join, it's free! -

Several meetups on the schedule with more to come. Suggestions always welcome.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Thanks, ToNY :-)

What to make of this....ideas needed!

Hi all, first visit here, I wonder if anyone has any ideas about this?

I have l'hermittes sign.

Following a bout of flu in Feb 2015 I had a spell of dizziness which started my referral an ENT who said labrynthitis, then vestibular neuritis as I had no hearing damage and passed all the audio/visual tests. Told to do a load of neck exercises, vestibular rehabilitation for the ear/balance issue. I reckon 250,000 vigorous ...

Recent Dx'ed

Hi all -

I am a 33yo male and was Dx'ed with RRMS in Sept 2015, I was having a right eye issue that my eye Dr. couldn't figure out (it wasn't due to ON, it was the location of a lesion) and he kept telling me to ride it out... I went to my primary and he got me an MRI the next week which showed 3 active lesions and 3-4 inactive ones. About ...

Newly Diagnosed

Hello! I am a twenty-two year old full time mom and a part time worker who is newly diagnosed with RRMS as of yesterday. My MS journey actually began in July of 2013 where I woke up and was seeing double. After going to the eye doctor, they ordered an MRI where lesions on my brain were found and MS was brought up but my eye doctor at the time told me something along the ...

Multiple Sclerosis Barbie

Hi! I'm newly diagnosed with RRMS, I'm a twenty-three year old college student & mother to my gloriously sassy two year old daughter. I was recently diagnosed after I finally brought up some concerning symptoms I'd been having periodically to my family doctor. My symptoms started in 2014 when my right hand and arm went numb for about two months. The symptoms faded away as mysteriously as they'd come on, and I didn't think much ...

Hello. New member, glad to be here

I have struggled with majorly poor health for over 10 years. Last June, I learned that I have MS. I have a lot of lesions, and they look like they were primarily laid down in two separate events. Still trying to learn how to tell my Ehler's-Danlos pain from fibro from MS. My neuro wants me on meds, so I am researching them now. I am also HSV+, which I guess can does not play ...

Hello all

Hi everyone, I'm new here and want to start by saying this seems like a good forum. I don't visit forums much, but I have no friends or family to speak of, so I thought it'd be worthwhile to start communicating with people, even if it is digital, about this nasty thing called MS. I started feeling weird in 2010 while going to university and checked into the hospital. They did ct's, mri's, labs and ...

Please read! I am scared and need advice :(

Hello all!

My name is Amy and I was recently diagnosed (two months ago) with clinically definite multiple sclerosis.

I have several active lesions in my brain ...none on my spine so far...but I have developed new symptoms since. I also have positive oligoclonal bands and IG index in CSF.

Two years ago, I started experiencing severe back spasm episodes. They could last a few minutes to about 15 minutes and were extremely severe. Sometimes, ...
