How I learned I have MS.

Hello Everyone,

It has taken me about eight months to trip across this site. I'm certianly glad I did. I was diagnosed with RRMS back in January and it came as quite a suprise! I hadn't had any symptoms until I woke up New Years Day with double vision, vertigo, and vomiting. Ok, I know it sounds like a hangover, but I hadn't had that much to drink.

It is with great sadness that I have to advise the readers of this forum that my wife Marg passed away late this afternoon.

After suffering from MS for over 36 years and in the past year from various ailments, she is finally at peace. She was recently admitted to hospital with Pancreatitis but had several other medical problems as well.
