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 ...

30 year Anniversary with ms

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.
I don't want to downplay the years but overall they were pretty good.
Started Avonex when it was new and the only others ...

I'm not really "new"

I was first diagnosed a year after having my oldest son right after a frightening bout of optic neuritis.

That child is almost eleven now.

I set out on the Internet to learn as much as I could and was faced with every bleak and downtrodden, personal website known to man. No hope or humor. Also no escape as there were also posts disparaging people who didn't want to embrace their new future. It was ...

New here, scared, lots of questions

Hi everyone!

I'm so happy to have found these boards. I'll try to keep this as short as possible.

I had optic neuritis in 2009. It resolved and, while I had an MRI that showed a couple of v. small lesions, the neuro said they were more typical of migraine and that was that. My vision was restored.

In 2010 I had weight loss surgery (sleeve gastrectomy, not a bypass) and had felt terrific for ...
