Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.

Got an email from Dr. Kerr regarding my MRI on Thursday.

"got it. the MRI looks great Chris. The MS is completely and totally inactive. Good news!!"

That is the email I got from the good doctor verbatim.

I am a believer this may be a venous issue so even ...

Neurologist Visit

I had a regular six month visit with my neurologist yesterday.

Sharon's post op CCSVI

What an adventure!! My "bucket list" (you know the movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman), did not have this adventure listed on it, but it does have "fight the MS with everything positive". Even though I feel pretty crappy right now, I think I can put a check mark alongside that entry.

Had another ropey week and am hoping so hard that this will ...

Anyone experience this annoying little symptom? The first time I had it, it lasted for 24 hours and it was really just annoying and didn't cause any other issues.

Yesterday it popped up again. My son had an assessment test for his new school next year and I ended up having to run to the restroom to vomit. The only positive is that I made it to the bathroom. I ended up vomiting 5 times ...
