Diagnosed with CIS

Hey everyone. I've been hanging out over at the Undiagnosed board, but was diagnosed with CIS yesterday.

I'm still in the diagnostic process of actual RRMS, so time and tests will tell if that is the case. I have repeat brain and c-spine MRIs next week and rounding out with an LP at the end of May.

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

Don't hate the Raider fan!

Considering Treatment options

Hi there,
I was diagnosed with TM in 2011 and RRMS in December 2014. After the initial TM I have had few or no symptoms until recently. Dizziness mostly, feeling like I'm a little bit drunk all the time, plus fatigue and some cognitive difficulties. I saw my neurologist yesterday, and she wants me to start treatment. Basically she went through some of the options and said "read this over and make your decision". So, ...

New to MS, new to this site

I have spent some time on this site reading the posts and responses and found it to be very supportive. I live in Canada and have recently (March) been diagnosed with MS. Shocking news to be sure...I have an active life and thought that I had a pretty good diet (limited gluten, dairy and grains). My first response was research to understand more about MS and how diet may impact this condition. At the same ...

My story & intro

I was diagnosed last fall (2015). I was given the diagnosis of Relapsing remitting, but I think I am Primary progressive. Half of my big toe went numb 24 years ago and has never changed. I started having jolts in my left leg 7 years ago that gradually increased until they were every few steps on my walk to work. When the right half of my body below the neck became oddly sensitive to temperature, ...

Ok if I Join? Diagnosed a Few Weeks Ago

Well, if they didn't diagnose me with MS, I sure would have been missing an opportunity considering the spot-on symptoms. Plus, I have several red flags for being at risk for MS. History of smoking. Northern European (Swedish) heritage. Grew-up in a cold climate (Massachusetts, USA). I have had another auto immune disease since age 15...eczema. However, I was 58 when I was diagnosed a few weeks ago, definitely kinda old for a MS diagnosis ...

MStranslate - easy to understand MS research

Dear all,

My name is Brett and I'm from Melbourne, Australia. Firstly, let me say what a wonderful forum 'ThisIsMS" provides for people with MS to come and discuss and feel a sense of community.

I am actually an MS researcher and have been involved in looking into potential causes of MS for around 10 years now. However, what I have realised during my time in research is that a huge gap exists between the ...
