Not yet diagnosed, but almost there and very scared

I am 34 and have two young kids. I also have Ankylosing Spondylitis, which is like RA, and neuropathy in my feet, so I already have health problems. I went to the neurologist and she told me that in all likelihood I have MS, I just have to get an MRI to confirm it. I've actually had to put it off twice now, both times to be in the hospital for other things. I'm ...

Fresh Diagnosis, still reeling, drug options, cure soon?

Hello, my name is Max. I'm a 37 year old male in San Diego with a fresh MS diagnosis as of last week. Everything I suspect so far makes it seem relapsing. I've always been active and relatively healthy with diet and exercise. I'm not sure what my future holds. I have a very supportive and loving wife which I'm happy to have more than ever. No children, but I do have a needy cat ...

Newly Diagnosed, not new to this suffering

Hi. I was diagnosed one month ago today, but suspect I've had this disease for at least nine years and possibly a lot longer, maybe even more than 20 years when I was still in the military. I would get sick and tired and clumsy for awhile and it would get better, but each time it came back it was worse. The first time I partially lost vision was nine years ago. I also have ...

confused and frustrated! Any THoughts?

I am new to this board but have been following for a while. I am in that horrible undiagnosed state and trying to decipher which if any of the auto immune disorders I may have.

Many years ago after my daughter was born I was diagnosed with Graves disease. After several attempts to manage it with thyroid PTU and such it was recommended to have it killed by means of radioactive iodine. I had ...

Hello ThisIsMS

Hello Folks,
My first post. I've been considering joining a site like this and finally decided to do it. I was diagnosed about 3 years ago. Had many 'episodes' before that where I would have numbness. Fell down a couple of times. I finally woke up one morning and my shoulder was throbbing. Went to the doctor and they advised to go to a surgeon. Long story short, I had a shoulder surgery after an ...

New to thisisms

Hi, everybody.
My mom and one of her best friends both have MS. So, for my mom's birthday, my little sister and I are raising money by selling t-shirts at The wcbi stands for We Can Beat It. Please buy a shirt if you can. All of the money that doesn't go to printing is being donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Prednisone taper alternative? I've had gastric bypass surger

Hello, I've just finished the 5 day solumedrol cocktail, and I feel lousy. Can't catch my breath, mood is all over the map, tin mouth, bloated, etc.... Today I will start the taper on prednisone. I have heard it can bother your stomach, is there anything to help avoid or lessen this? My Nuero is out of the office for 6 weeks, he will freak if I take something that can give me an ulcer, ...

new to MS

Hello, another 'minority' newbie here. MS has become a little more personal lately. I lived across the street from a man with MS when I was 8-10 years old. I have numerous symptoms now, no firm dx. Saw i neurologist for 1st time last week and he kind of tied things together for me. I'm male, 50 yrs old. Had vision problems 2 1/2 yrs ago. The peripheral cutout healed but the blurriness did not. ...
