Finally Diagnosed with MS

Hi All!

My name is Natalie and I am 30, from Tucson, AZ. I was officially diagnosed with MS about a month ago. The diagnosis was actually a relief for me, and I strangely felt happy when I got the news.

Not that I am happy to have MS, but I first started having symptoms 10 years ago when I was 20. I was attending college in TN and one day started feeling numbness in ...

Hi all, I have been told my my doctor and my neurologist they are looking for MS, when I asked them flat out. I am Claustrophobic and the MRI has been a issue though my insurance has finally agreed to a full sedation MRI and they are working on scheduling it, not sure how long it will take.

Flow & anatomical abnormalities in MS vs Controls using MRI

Hello everyone,

I am delighted to present this work fresh off the presses. Within the paper lies clear differences in venous anatomy in the MS and HC samples, but most importantly in jugular flow between the two. Also elucidated are the pitfalls of the Rodger and Traboulsee studies. Specifically, using individual IJV flow and percent stenosis method, instead of total IJV (and normalized IJV flow to arterial flow) and using fixed area for determining stenosis. ...


Ebola Concerns While on Immunosuppressants?

Is anyone else concerned about Ebola while on immunosuppressant's to treat MS? I was diagnosed with MS about a month ago (although my doc says I have probably had it for about 10 years) and am about to start Tecfidera for treatment.

Plegridy anyone?

Anyone on plegridy? I am considering switching from Rebif (6 years). I was on Avonex 8 years and it made me horribly depressed. Rebif doesn't for some reason. Maybe because I am on 22 mg.

Any info would be appreciated.
