Diagnosis MS

Hi I am new to this but have been diagnosed with MS for a year. My diagnosis was made as a complete surprise, I went to ER with a really bad headache and numbness in my left arm.

F/26, Newly Diagnosed 11-1-2013, on Gilenya

Hi! I've had my diagnosis for a month and a half; I've been on Gilenya for two weeks, and I'm female, happily married, and 26 years old.

I was reluctant to join a message board; I was afraid it would be just a lot of symptom comparing, like one person says "my legs are so weak I can hardly walk," and another person responds, "oh, that's nothing - my legs are so weak I can't ...

How were you told of your Dx?

My neuro called after my MRI brain and LS spine. Despite the fact that I saw the films and read the report (didn't seem too significant other than some tumors on my L5 and S2 and S3) she called and asked me to come in on Christmas Eve to "talk." This is the first time in six years that she has done this. I am worried to say the least. Should I be? How were ...

New to forum, lots of questions.

Hello all, I was diagnosed in 2008 with relapse-remitting and have been on Tysabri for two and a half years now. Not sure that it's working so great, though; six months ago, I could run five miles, now, I walk with a severe foot drop. I will post some of my comments/concerns in the Tysabri board. Until then, greetings, and I hope you, yes YOU are having an awesome day.
