Hi all,

I am not diagnosed with MS. I have had 6 concussions in my life. MRI and CT scans from 2 years ago show white spots on the right side of my brain.

I moved and got a new neurologist. He said in the coming months he wants to test me for MS via blood work and spinal tap.

I've read that brain injuries can double the chance of MS.

My symptoms are chronic ...

Violent Stretching Upon Awakening

It is somewhat normal to stretch upon awakening as our body is squeezing the lactic acid buildup accumulated during sleeping. During the stretching action lactic acid is squeezed out of the muscles back into the blood stream not unlike squeezing a sponge. Over the last few months I have undergone almost violent stretching and shaking upon awakening to the point of feeling as if my muscles are going to detach my tendons from my joints. ...

"Almost" diagnosed

Hello Everyone!

Hope you are doing ok :)

This is my first post here. I will try to make a long story short ;)

My journey began 3 years ago (I was 20 yo) with some mild neurological symptoms (muscle weakness, mostly in left leg and slightly impaired sensation on the left side of my body). I was admitted ...

Hi All...
So I need thoughts/advice. I have had symptoms for a while that I have ignored. First one I recall is a period where I tripped over my own feet for a while. Then I started choking when I drink liquids (not eating), and only sometimes. The next symptom I noticed was speech disturbance. No so much slurring, although there are times I smash all the letters in the word together, but mostly word ...

Diagnosed a week ago

Hello there! This is all extremely new to me...I'm 32, and just left Arizona at the end of October to move in with my boyfriend in Iowa City, IA. A few days before our departure in AZ, I felt a tingle in the bottom of my feet that, within a matter of days, prevented me from walking correctly with horrible numbness. I was told it was sciatic pain in the ER (the MRI they did ...

New to this forum and new to MS.

Hello all, my name's Heather and I'm twenty-three years old. I was diagnosed with MS on May of '14. The last few months have been something of an adaption period for me. I was utterly devastated when I got the diagnosis and it didn't work out all that gracefully due to some poor healthcare experiences, etc. In fact I still couldn't really explain to you what MS is other than an autoimmune disorder in ...

Every test but brain MRI neg for MS, Neuro still wants to Dx

Hi Everyone,

New here and in a weird situation. Of course, we all are, but mine seems like the inverse of most people's stories and I don't know what to think!

A year ago I had a sudden hearing loss in left ear. I was supposed to get an MRI but blew it off b/c of other health issues I was dealing with. A couple months ago my PCP insisted I have one. The result ...

Hello all

Hello all,

My name is Hope and I am a 33 year old female. Last Sunday I experienced, what felt like to me, electrical shooting pain (which took my breath away, due to the intensity of it) which shot up my whole left side of my body and it lasted for 3 to 4 seconds. This pain again struck me two more times on Monday night, once while standing and once while lying down in ...

new diagnosis- fast diagnosis

Since I read this forum a few times a week, I figured I may as well register and introduce myself!
I'm 34 and was diagnosed after a whirlwind of less than 6 months of symptoms. On May 29, I was walking across the parking lot at work when my feet both suddenly went numb, as if they were asleep. The tingling persisted for days…then weeks..and random other symptoms started happening. Numb spots on my ...
