My first post , tests done. Waiting.

My guess is I'm posting the same thing many have before. I've had symptoms for well over a decade.

I was first diagnosed with ocular migraines in 2005. Been to ER twice for weird symptoms. Sent to podiatrist when my foot & leg began failing.

My MRI shows one lesion. Right frontal white matter.

Anyone with any thoughts? Does it sound like ms?

Diagnosed with CIS

My neuro said basically he would like me to start on Copaxone and I'm just wondering if anyone ...

Hello from RaiderNationDave

Just thought I'd say hi. I'm David. diagnosed with RR in Sept. 2015. Been taking Tecfidera since Feb. 2016. Not dizzy anymore but still slightly numb in my fingers. Tecfidera is expensive, and I'm outta work, so when I get back to working I'm not gonna wanna buy it! $7 geezers a bottle.

Don't hate the Raider fan!
