Hello! Just diagnosed and have some questions. :)

Hello all!

My name is Erica and I am a 29 year-old stand up comic from Cincinnati. I was just diagnosed with MS after a week-long hospital stay precipitated by optic neuritis and a subsequent inability to walk normally. After admission, I had horrible pain shooting down my legs as well as severe neck and back pain. After five days of IV steroids in the hospital, my symptoms were significantly better. Having been off the ...

reengaging w/ ms stuff

this is mostly copy/pasted from a reintroduction I posted on a far less active board yesterday

My account has been dormant so long that I think I registered with an email attached to an ISP that I abandoned years ago. I was psyched when this forum started and it seemed to be attracting good people, but I started to feel like I was dedicating too much time to my identity as a patient and stopped ...

Diagnosed Monday...confused about spinal tap?

Hi, I'm new here! I just got diagnosed a couple days ago. I went into the ER with left leg numbness assuming it was a pinched nerve and instead they performed an MRI on my brain and found brain lesions and swelling. I spoke to a neurologist who gave me a spinal tap, but I'm still pretty confused by the diagnosis. It's not just that it was completely unexpected, but I won't get the spinal ...

The start of an adventure...

Hi There!

I am a 48 year-old male recently diagnosed (last Monday) with relapsing/remitting MS.

This comes after 3 years of confusion created by doctors in various countries (in the Middle East) without the necessary experience of MS to make the correct diagnosis. Now I am in New Zealand and it took only 2 months to get the answer I always suspected.

I experience substantial balance problems and have great numbness/lack of feeling in both ...

Hello all I am in my fourth year of having MS and cannot find a stable job. I have a contract job that I can go back to in about 5 weeks.

Diagnosed today

Hi all,

As per the subject title, I was diagnosed with MS today and have joined the board in order to read others stories, share stories, and enlighten myself on MS and the treatments available.

In 2009, I had woken up one morning and felt that I was going blind. My vision was blurry in both eyes. If I was to use my peripheral vision, or to turn my head to the left, my right ...

New to MS forums...

This is my first MS forum I've ever been on, so I don't really know what to expect. My mother, a nurse, was diagnosed with MS-relapsing/remitting in December of 2009. I was 18 years old and a freshman in college so I didn't really care/understand what this diagnosis was going to mean for my family. I'm now 22 years old and a month away from graduating from nursing school. I'm now MUCH more aware of ...
