Diagnosed Monday...confused about spinal tap?

Hi, I'm new here! I just got diagnosed a couple days ago. I went into the ER with left leg numbness assuming it was a pinched nerve and instead they performed an MRI on my brain and found brain lesions and swelling. I spoke to a neurologist who gave me a spinal tap, but I'm still pretty confused by the diagnosis. It's not just that it was completely unexpected, but I won't get the spinal ...

The start of an adventure...

Hi There!

I am a 48 year-old male recently diagnosed (last Monday) with relapsing/remitting MS.

This comes after 3 years of confusion created by doctors in various countries (in the Middle East) without the necessary experience of MS to make the correct diagnosis. Now I am in New Zealand and it took only 2 months to get the answer I always suspected.

I experience substantial balance problems and have great numbness/lack of feeling in both ...

Not new to MS but can't find a stable job

Hello all I am in my fourth year of having MS and cannot find a stable job. I have a contract job that I can go back to in about 5 weeks. The bad thing is that it is shifts which somehow I handled it and called in when my legs were feeling weak. My last 4 months I was forced to work on a different crew and was no happy because I had to ...

Diagnosed today

Hi all,

As per the subject title, I was diagnosed with MS today and have joined the board in order to read others stories, share stories, and enlighten myself on MS and the treatments available.

In 2009, I had woken up one morning and felt that I was going blind. My vision was blurry in both eyes. If I was to use my peripheral vision, or to turn my head to the left, my right ...

New to MS forums...

This is my first MS forum I've ever been on, so I don't really know what to expect. My mother, a nurse, was diagnosed with MS-relapsing/remitting in December of 2009. I was 18 years old and a freshman in college so I didn't really care/understand what this diagnosis was going to mean for my family. I'm now 22 years old and a month away from graduating from nursing school. I'm now MUCH more aware of ...

Still Awaiting Diagnosis

On February 9th my whole world change. I woke up that morning realizing my legs had been replaced with a ton of lead.

I was unable to move my legs for 3 days. My legs became, like the sword in the stone, every doctor and nurse tried to move them but no one was strong enough, to even get them to move a millimeter.

By day four I was finally able to get my legs ...

Newbie

Hello I am new,

I am a transfer from the MSWorld board. I was just booted off the board because I said something to the likes of "you should stop working if your MS symptoms could injure someone on your job". :confused: There is some kind of agenda with that board. I'm taking a chance with this forum, hoping it is a safe haven to talk.

About ...

Newb. :-)

Good morning... I found this forum last week and it's already been super helpful. I have not been diagnosed but I've been to the doctor and posting in that forum, so it's a work in progress.

I am 30 years old, a mom to a 5 year old, and I play roller derby, belly dance, ride a motorcycle, and enjoy the quieter aspects of my life as well, haha.

I'm also in the process of ...
