So I had sort of posted here before when I had a feeling that I may have MS. I didn't post much after, because I hadn't been diagnosed.

Well within the last month I suddenly got a black dot in my vision which grew over day and my vision went grey (only in my right eye). Initially I thought it was optic neuritis, and family members who have MS said that ON was what lead ...

Finally an answer to my symptoms. Wasn't expecting MS

I was just diagnosed, after more than a year of symptoms. Doctors, therapists, all looking at the individual symptoms, and all of us ignoring the ones that didn't make sense in the picture. Now, after having a breakdown from the stress of wondering how long I would still have my job. I needed to do my job! The tests just didn't point out what it was. And the fear broke me. Several months, more therapy, ...

Hello there

I am a 74 year old great grandmother who has r/r/m/s/. Although only diagnosed in 1999, I'm pretty confident I have had this condition since my teens. I consider that I'm pretty lucky in that I still only use a walking stick and, on bad days, a wheelie walker.
Living in the sub tropics I find the weather does affect me but have a couple of air conditioners and many fans in the ...

Dos this seem reasonable?

Saw a another neuro yesterday for second opinion. Said b/c I have had 5 brain MRIs over the last 10 years, I do not have MS. He said it would have presented itself with other symptoms by now. I expressed my concern about all of them being on open machines. He said it's not that hard to pick up MS. He said his sub specialty is MS and he has dx'd over 8000 cases. Left ...

My spider senses tell me...

Hi guys, I'm Stephanie. I love art (enjoying & creating), gardening, playing with my dog, and pumping iron :). I have pretty eclectic taste in hobbies -- I'm a compulsive hobbyist, as I like to say. I love to read anything I can get my hands on (except concerning politics and other touchy, bias-prone subjects) and journal.

I'm the type of person who hates being sick, hates ...
