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 ...

So I had sort of posted here before when I had a feeling that I may have MS. I didn't post much after, because I hadn't been diagnosed.

Well within the last month I suddenly got a black dot in my vision which grew over day and my vision went grey (only in my right eye). Initially I thought it was optic neuritis, and family members who have MS said that ON was what lead ...

Finally an answer to my symptoms. Wasn't expecting MS

I was just diagnosed, after more than a year of symptoms. Doctors, therapists, all looking at the individual symptoms, and all of us ignoring the ones that didn't make sense in the picture. Now, after having a breakdown from the stress of wondering how long I would still have my job. I needed to do my job! The tests just didn't point out what it was. And the fear broke me. Several months, more therapy, ...
