Newb. :-)

Good morning... I found this forum last week and it's already been super helpful. I have not been diagnosed but I've been to the doctor and posting in that forum, so it's a work in progress.

I am 30 years old, a mom to a 5 year old, and I play roller derby, belly dance, ride a motorcycle, and enjoy the quieter aspects of my life as well, haha.

I'm also in the process of ...

NEW... Confused... Scared... Broke... need advice

Hello Everyone,

I posted 2 or 3 times before, but never here because I don't know what's wrong with me. When I had my 1 and only attack it was 2002 and no one else in the family had MS. That changed about 6 years later. I now have a 1st cousin who has MS. A year ago he was put on Adderall. I asked why. He said a certain neurologist who has MS himself ...

Introduction, learned a bit, hungry for something new

The very first MS symptom that I noticed practically scared me out of my skin.

As I drifted into actual sleep and genuinely lost consciousness, a violent hip flexor sort of spasm would hit my body and ruin the moment.

At first, I assessed it as a side effect of an exposure to PVC plastic. Cutting some of that to make a clothing rack resulted in a faceful of the dust from it.

That happened ...

Bowel Incontinence

Hi. I was diagnosed 2 years ago. Today I had the most embarrassing moment of my life to date. I felt the need to go to the bathroom at work and went to 3 different bathrooms. I work Oil&Gas so the last one was the shop floor restroom. I was having difficulty holding it with all the walking as they aren't close. I had to wait on a stall opening all while trying to play ...

Just Diagnosed, Not sure what to do about my work

Hi Everyone,

I am 27yr old female and I was just diagnosed with MS on Thursday Feb 20th, 2014. I had my first event in Mary 2013 which manifested as sudden buzzing in my feet, that spread all the way up to my thighs in a couple of days, and was the same in both legs. After my doctor did everything she could for me, which consisted of requesting an MRI, blood test & some ...

I am new to this forum, but have been living with MS since 2011. I consider it a mild case because it doesn't really impact my abilities yet (a lot of numbness and tingling in my left hand and leg, but no real loss of function... I'd say 98% functionality).

Given the unique nature of the disease and how everyone experiences symptoms differently, I haven't had much interest or need to reach out to others ...
