Are there other options besides MS?

Hi All,

First post.

About 18 months ago I developed a tingling/numbness in my left leg and arm. At the end of last year I then developed a similar feeling in the left side of my face. The intensity increased slightly on all areas over the last 6 months and the facial numbness spread across the left side of my head. I can pretty much draw a line down the middle of my head and ...

Meniere disease and CCSVI

Ménière disease (MD) is a chronic illness of the inner ear that affects a substantial number of patients every year worldwide. Because of a dearth of well-controlled studies, the medical and surgical management of MD remains quite empirical. The main reason is that it is very difficult to investigate patients affected with Certain MD due to the post-mortem criterion necessary for this diagnostic grade.

Stabbing pain

I've been taking Tecfidera for about 4 months now, and for the most part I've left the gastro side effects behind.

Last night I took my pill late, just before bed. Every time I take it I have to eat something after or else the pill just sits high up in my esophagus. I find the capsules are very light, they almost seem cheaply made.

Dizziness, how does it feel in MS? Undiagnosed...

Hello everybody,

I was wondering how does dizziness commonly present itself in MS? Could it last only a few seconds, and feel like a feeling of being on the verge to... maybe faint... or feeling a bit lightheaded but without having the world spinning around you? I had that feeling about five days ago, and again today, and both times it lasted for about 10 seconds... I have to say that both times it is ...
