Finally Diagnosed with MS

Hi All!

My name is Natalie and I am 30, from Tucson, AZ. I was officially diagnosed with MS about a month ago. The diagnosis was actually a relief for me, and I strangely felt happy when I got the news.

Not that I am happy to have MS, but I first started having symptoms 10 years ago when I was 20. I was attending college in TN and one day started feeling numbness in ...

I just kept living a normal life. I have also been known to fall a lot but never thought anything of it.When I turned 20 the falls came more often. But again I didn't think anything of ...

Newly Diagnosed

Hi I have had problems with walking, balance and extreme tiredness since Feb up to that point was very healthy. I was on holiday in Turkey when symptoms first appeared and ended up in hospital out there. Since returning to the Uk I seem to have spent more time waiting for appointments than getting any nearer a diagnosis. I was finally diagnosed with Relapsing Remittent Multiple Sclerosis in the middle of September and at first ...

Caring for my RRMS fiancee : challenges


My fiancee of 3 years has blocked me out and pushed me away, due to stress from arguing over the course of the past year.

She was diagnosed with MS over 10 years ago. It went into remission after a hard 9 months. We have been together since 2009 and have been deeply in love nearly from day 1. MS resurfaced in late Summer of 2012, after putting in a notice at a stressful ...
