Flare or Pseudoexacerbation?

Hi All! I diagnosed with MS about 1 year ago and had something new happen I would like to get some insight on. I recently had a UTI and a couple of days into it, the whole right side of my face went numb and tingly and my head was tingly as well. This lasted for a good 4-5 days. I have had the numbness and tingling before, but only in my legs and feet. ...

Can't get MRI until Jan, but worried out Pernicious Anemia


My name is Ashling and I'm 36. First off, I want to apologise for the length of this post. I have a very specific question at the end that I don’t feel like I can ask without properly setting up the situation.

In February of this year (2016), I suddenly noticed one night at fencing class that I had a swollen left ankle and my foot hurt. I googled a bunch and tib-post tendonitis ...

Possible MS? 'lhermittes' + blind spots

So. Long story short; for the last 3 years I have experienced some symptoms, that I believe could be caused by MS. I'm the right age group; 24 year old female, scandinavian.

Because of the 'vagueness' and random ways my symptoms have been appearing, I have been pretty much brushed off by neuros. They (quite obviously) think the symptoms are caused by anxiety and tense muscles in my shoulders.

I just visited a neuro today ...

Can Cymbalta hide symptoms?

Hi. I know I am a little old to be diagnosed (41 yo female), and I did have an MRI which was normal, but I am still not convinced. Actually, I do not have ANY diagnosis at ALL from my neurologist, but yet I still have symptoms. So frustrating. Anyway, he put me on Cymbalta, and although my symptoms are better, I still have them. Here goes.

Not sure what is related and what isn't ...

Experimental drug shows promise in MS treatment

A new experimental drug has shown promise in treating multiple sclerosis in mice model. Study author Dr. Scott Zamvil said, “This study has given us more insight into how laquinimod works. But because this was an animal study, more research needs to be done before we know if it could have similar results in people. these results are promising because they provide hope for people with progressive MS, an advanced version of the disease ...

Back in 2011 I was in hospital for numbness of the right side of my body they diagnosed it as conversion disorder and since then I just thought that was the diagnosis for all my problems with my right leg. Recently I've been having severe lower back pain also. They say it's minor lumbar scoliosis but I still get numbness in my right leg along with other symptoms. I just feel like everywhere I go ...

Is this MS...

Hello. I'm new here. I have an undiagnosed condition. First it was possible rheumatoid arthritis...but the panels came back negative. Then it was fibromyalgia, but a rheumatologist my mother sees said it's not likely because I'm male. Then there was a mention of possible MS. I'm going to my local doctor today. A little scared. I've been describing my symptoms for a long time. Never really got an answer. I joined here to really just ...
