Newly Diagniosed

Hey! I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago and did 5 days of Solu-Medrol last week. I met with my neuro yesterday and I have to decide which long term treatment to try. I am really confused and would love any recommendations. The choices he gave me are Avonex, Copaxone, REbiff, Beta Seron, Gilenya, Tectidera. I don't want to do Tysabri. My main symptoms now are optic neuritis (which is better) and numbness from waist down ...

Doctor is stumped

First off, I probably shouldn't even be posting here because I don't think MS is on the radar at this time. Also, this is not a bash on my neuro. Yes, he is stumped but he told me so AND was not dismissive but pushing forward to find answers. I respect that. So... I have too many MS symptoms to list but the current bothersome ones are neck/back/leg pain and arm hand tingling on the ...

Spouse with Optic Neuritis

Hi ,

New here today. My late forties spouse sees a neurologist/opthamologist tomorrow and we are concerned her optic neuritis is a prelude to a possible MS diagnosis. She is super frustrated as she has lost a considerable amount of central vision in her left eye, but some has returned. She wants an answer to why she is going through this. She was sent to this specialist by a trusted Neurologist local to us, as ...

Diagnosed April 2016...Being pushed to start Tysabri

After my initial diagnosis and being misinformed by neurologist, got 2nd opinion and there is a big push to start Tysabri asap. After a few weeks of coming to terms with it, I relapsed 6 weeks later. Had a pretty full on time with multiple side effects from steroid Injections but was advised to finish the course but it was giving over a longer time frame. Went to see neurologist again and couldn't understand the ...

Certain actions cause hands to become weak and tingly

So, this may seem weird, but I've noticed that when I do certain things my hands get very weak and tingly, and sometimes it's worse than others. These things are; (I am a male, please do not judge me haha) when I watch a video tutorial on YouTube on how to style my hair or basically just any beauty-type tutorial in general, when I sit in front of somebody at school and they shake their ...

In the clear....well sort of

I've posted a couple of times. Long story short, I had my c spine MRI. My doctor is, well, slooow! I decided to pick up my report. Apparently, I have a bulging disc, some "uncovering", spinal stenosis and an enlarged thyroid. So, it appears that I do not have MS but a slew of other issues. The odd thing is that all the above issues are listed as LEFT yet most of my tingling, pain ...
