34 year old mom, diagnosed last week .

My name is Crystal and last week I was told (via MRI) results that I have a couple of "small lesions" that require me to be referred to a neurologist. I have an appointment with him Monday and am equally scared and looking forward to it. This started last month when I started losing vision in my left eye, went to the eye doctor and BAM was hit with this new diagnosis. Its been ...

I'm a newbie

Hello I'm new to this site.
I was DX July 2014, with RRRM MS, My question is my Neuro just said yesterday that it's not 100% I have MS because my last MRI didn't show any changes.
I've been taking Tecfidera since being DX. I've read where this medicine can help with getting no new lesions.
I'm really upset that if I don't have it why did she put me on all these drugs?
I ...

New here

Hey I am new here and pretty sure I will be sticking around. I was rather suddenly told Wednesday (8/31) that I more than likely have MS. I went to see a neurological ophthalmologist for some new vision problems including the difficulty focusing after shifting my eyes and double vision while trying to focus. After focusing I had 20/15 vision. I then told him about an episode a few months previous with numbness on the ...

New to MS and the forum

Hi all,
I am 54 and my diagnosis was just confirmed Monday 8/8/16 and I am still in the throws of my initial attack. It started on 7/14 with a 'bit of numbness' in my right thumb and fore finger and progressed from there to where my right side from my ear to my hand 'feels weird'. It feels like I have a very tight wristwatch on and my shirt feels like it has lead ...

Diagnosed August 4, 2016 - Dr. Recommended Copaxone

Hi. My name is Candice and I am 46 years old. I just got diagnosed with MS and the doctor wants me to start Copaxone injections. I'm kind of scared to take it because I'm not sure what to expect. My symptoms are dizziness, nausea, random pains in arms and legs. My left leg goes numb and sometimes my foot drags. I have lesions now in my brain and spine. I could use some support ...

Newly Diagniosed

Hey! I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago and did 5 days of Solu-Medrol last week. I met with my neuro yesterday and I have to decide which long term treatment to try. I am really confused and would love any recommendations. The choices he gave me are Avonex, Copaxone, REbiff, Beta Seron, Gilenya, Tectidera. I don't want to do Tysabri. My main symptoms now are optic neuritis (which is better) and numbness from waist down ...

Spouse with Optic Neuritis

Hi ,

New here today. My late forties spouse sees a neurologist/opthamologist tomorrow and we are concerned her optic neuritis is a prelude to a possible MS diagnosis. She is super frustrated as she has lost a considerable amount of central vision in her left eye, but some has returned. She wants an answer to why she is going through this. She was sent to this specialist by a trusted Neurologist local to us, as ...

Diagnosed April 2016...Being pushed to start Tysabri

After my initial diagnosis and being misinformed by neurologist, got 2nd opinion and there is a big push to start Tysabri asap. After a few weeks of coming to terms with it, I relapsed 6 weeks later. Had a pretty full on time with multiple side effects from steroid Injections but was advised to finish the course but it was giving over a longer time frame. Went to see neurologist again and couldn't understand the ...

Hi there,

My name is Cara, and my husband was just diagnosed with MS. After a year and a half of trying to find out why his legs were weak, and his balance was off, his new neurologist says its most likely PPMS.

Anyway, I have a lot of questions and will be reading everything I can on this forum.

I hope you are all well. Thank you. :wink: ...
