Caregiver Turmoil

I am posting here because I just need to vent these emotions whirling around inside me in a place my girl cannot see.

My daughter has incomplete transverse myelitis - she was diagnosed about a year and a half ago with a lesion between C2/C3. The right side of her body was going completely numb from her shoulders down. We have been through series after series of tests and the news is not positive. They ...

Just recently Diagnoised after a year of testing

I am new here and I was just diagnoised recently. My doctor gave me a list of meds to research and decide on so that I could talk with him at my next visit in a couople of weeks. I am so confused reading all of this it is very overwhelming. I do not really have many symptoms yet, that is why he wants to start me on something. I have the brain lesions, fatigue ...

Long time with MS, new to the forum!

Hello! I'm 36 and was diagnosed at age 27. I have no disability at present, but do struggle with symptoms on occasion. I guess I'm here because I'm curious about other people's experience living with MS.

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, 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 ...

As I sit in the opthamologist office waiting for my left eye to dilate so I can be checked out for ON, I write to introduce myself. I am a wife and mom of two and have been diagnosed for 2 years. My mom has MS as well... I came here looking for support. It's nice to have family support but hard not to be able to talk about how I feel and really not ...

A plea for help

Hi all!

I was diagnosed with MS 3 years ago after losing the feeling in lower half of my body. Went to the doctor expecting to hear that I had pinched a nerve or something ridiculous like that only to leave 3 hours later with a diagnosis of MS. 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 ...
