NEW to Avonex

Hi All,

Kind of itching?

Ive read that itching is another wonderful part of ms. I have been experiencing crazy itching all over, mainly my arms but does effect legs and scalp also. Just had some liver tests done to rule out any liver issues. It might sound strange but I am really hoping it is the ms and not some new health issue. Anyone have experience with all over itching??

Syrinx

Hello all,

My "clear" MRI report did note that I had a "tiny syrinx" on the spinal cord. This is essentially a fluid-filled cyst that develops on the spinal cord (filled with CSF). I have been doing some investigating and it sounds like demylination of the spinal cord can actually CAUSE the syrinx. Does anyone have any insight or experience with a syrinx and how it could relate to MS? The rest of my MRI ...

Question on flares (symptom development within one flare)

Hi all,

Basically, my question is whether it's common for flares to "unfold" with the same progression of symptoms.

I first went to see my GP following a series of nocturnal injuries. At the time I thought I was having seizures in my sleep because I'd go to bed fine and wake up feeling like I'd fallen down a flight of stairs. As I went through test after test my symptoms progressed (motor issues of ...

Disability Scholarships for Graduate School

Hi,

I was diagnosed with RRMS last summer. My biggest symptom is fatigue. I'm limited in the amount and type of work I can do. I'm currently applying to graduate schools for a Master's in Counseling degree. I am looking into financial aid. I know that the MS Society provides scholarships for undergraduate students or high school students. Do any of you know of other places I can look to get a scholarship for MS ...

Clear MRIs, definite MS symptoms

Hello,

I am new to this forum and have actually never posted on ANY forum but I'm to the point of frustration. I have had now two "rounds" of neurological symptoms.

The first round included numbness tingling, brain fog, severe muscle jerks while sleeping, some strange facial numbness and itching, minor bladder overactivity, mild drop foot, and some right arm weakness. Checked it out with a neurologist (MS specialist). She ordered a brain MRI and ...
