NMO???

Hi there!! I'm new, obviously... and my name is Jen. I had my first symptom at 14, diagnosed at 15. Now that I'm 2 months away from being 20, my last visit with my neuro was a little odd for me. He told me that I might have NMO because I have inflamation in my spine, so I'm sitting on pins and needles for my results. Does anybody else have MS and NMO? I'm so ...

Fatigue

I am really struggling with fatigue at the moment. I am at work and practically in tears because I am so exhausted. It's obvious because my physical stuff gets worse - I'm staggering like a drunk person, my limbs feel weak and I can tell that i am having trouble forming words / my speech is slightly slurred. I feel like such a bad wife too - my house needs cleaning but by the time ...

I have relapse remitting MS and have been having a lot of pain in my left upper leg, hip and back. My doc is on vacation and another one did xrays and just emailed me the results without explaining them.

Said my SI joints, especially the right ones appear appear sclerotic but patent. Anybody have any idea what that means? I emailed this replacement doc back but haven't heard from her yet. I looked it ...

Hi, glad I found this site!

I have visited other sites over the past years on and off, usually when I have an exacerbation, but to be honest with you, I really was not looking for people to bless me or pray for me. Though I know their hearts were in the right place. I just want to be able to feel connected, to talk to others who know what it feels like to have these wierd sx, that only someone ...

Looking for a book about MS for a newly diagnosed 15 yr. old

She wants some interesting books to learn more about her MS. Maybe something written by a teen or written specifically for teens. She was not interested in Nancy Davis or Teri Garr books that I got. Anyone know any others?

Brain lesions vs. spinal cord lesions

I'm new here, so forgive me if this has been covered before...
My neuro said he was more concerned about my spinal /neck lesions than the ones in my brain. He said that the brain ones were in an "insignificant place", but his face fell when he discussed the spinal/neck ones. This was about 13 months ago and I'm still walking and talking...I mean, did he want to imply impending doom, or what? I'm due ...

Gardasil (HPV vaccine) can lead to MS

I suspect that my daughter's inoculation with the HPV vaccine has caused her, a previously healthy, active 15 year old, to develop MS (at first thought to be ADEM). Any thoughts?
