Looking for answers...

Hi, my name is Tamara and I am a 29 year old mother and wife. I am writing b/c lately I have been experiencing some weird symptoms. I've been to MANY doctors in all different fields and still no answers. I have been doing a lot of research and MS is the only thing that really seems to make sense to me. Here is my story (a little personal)...

From the time I was about ...

New to forum, lots of questions.

Hello all, I was diagnosed in 2008 with relapse-remitting and have been on Tysabri for two and a half years now. Not sure that it's working so great, though; six months ago, I could run five miles, now, I walk with a severe foot drop. I will post some of my comments/concerns in the Tysabri board. Until then, greetings, and I hope you, yes YOU are having an awesome day.

New here...confused...but dealing

Good morning!

First off, I must confess I've been stalking this forum for about two months. I have learned so much from all the posts on here. I would have been a basket case after diagnosis if it weren't for the knowledge I gained before my appointment.

This might get long, but need to get it out...Thank you in advance for your time and patience.

I was diagnosed with CIS on November 5th, two days ...

Newly diagnosed today

Finally got a call back from my neuro, and with one lesion on my brain and one on my spine that caused left sided parathesis (numbness) last August, and with more than five oligoclonal bands in CSF, I have my MS diagnosis. I was actually more upset at the doc not calling back for more than a week after her knowing the results (long story) than the actual dx.

Anyway, now I'm trying to figure ...

Family History of MS

Hey guys,
This is the first time I have used a forum, so here goes. I am a college student, and just been starting to deal with what I have been hiding in the back of my mind for all of my life. My dad has MS. He was diagnosed around 20 years ago. He is doing fine and on Copaxone. He does not have any noticeable physical symptoms, or any others that he has ...

Here it goes/Hello

Hey guys/gals,

My name is Sean, and although I have yet to be 100% diagnosed with ms, my doctor and neurologist are painting a very dintinct picture of its possibility. I have been going crazy in my mind for the last 8 years of my life with experience a range of symtoms that could easily fit in a number of neurological disorders. I guess I just figured that even at the very least writing all ...

one bad news after another - a few more questions

Hi everyone,

I wasn't sure where to post this since I've already made my introduction in March of this year, but I guess I'm in the right place. Again I'm 25, male, and more and more depressed by every new check-up.

I'm really starting to doubt my MS diagnosis after my second MRI from a week ago, even though MS was officially confirmed. I doubt it for two reasons, and that is where I need ...

Still not accepting dx

27 years ago, I had optic neuritis (no MRIs then). I lost all vision in one eye within a week. I had no treatment. Gradually, over apx. a year's period, my vision returned totally. FF 27 years. I was walking across a parking lot, and all the sudden, one whole side of my body went paralyzed. I couldn't walk. I could talk and asked a stranger for help (they proceeded to finishing loading their car ...
