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.

Hello! Newly diagnosed and new to this site

Hi! I'm a 26 year old US immigrant in Canada and I was just diagnosed with MS in January. I've had symptoms since 2010 but in June began having trouble walking. I'm now confined to a wheelchair and I don't go in to the neurologist until March 17th (which is, admittedly, very close ^^). I've attempted to join other communities but haven't found them helpful. After perusing this one a bit before joining, however, I ...

Hello! I am checking out new forums and trying to connect with other m.s.' rs.
I was diagnosed in '86, the same month as my 1st marriage. I had numbness and tingling which led me to a neurologist, an MRI and a spinal tap. I was lucky that my Dr. suspected immediately.
