The infusion nurse also said they we ...

Questions on the Symptoms

I am at the begining stages of being test for MS. I had an episode where my entire left side went numb for about 3 hours (on vacation of course!) and then I regained feeling and movement. After a visit with my doctor, his first thought is MS. I have my MRI at the end of this week and I am incredibly worried. I have a few odd symptoms and I'm wondering if others have ...

Sorry I haven't been around much for a while. It has been one of those years and I have been trying to live ignoring the fact that I have MS.

Received another opinion, and off to NIH tomorrow

With what's going on with Holly, this seems incredibly unimportant, but I'll be gone for a few days and wanted to post this before I left.

Just to review, the report that came with my CT scan said that everything was "within normal ranges". Doctor Dake reported over the phone that he saw rather severe occlusions (pancaking) in both upper jugulars. I asked him to send me a written account of his impressions, and received ...

How will I survive financially?

I was diagnosed with RRMS when I was 15 years old. At the age of 18, my level of fatigue was so high that I had trouble functioning (I have tried all the drugs but they do not help). I almost completed University. I graduated from high school with a 90% average and I had an A average in the courses that I completed at University. I have tried working on numerous occasions but after ...
