Stacey Irvine looks surprisingly well for a 17-year-old who's eaten only chicken nuggets since she was 2. But when she recently went to the hospital after passing out from struggling to breathe, doctors told her that she absolutely had to eat more healthily.

"She's been told in no uncertain terms that she will die ...

Gilenya Side Effects?

I have been taking Gilenya since March 2013 and after 9 years on Betaferon it's been brilliant. However this year it seems like the side effects have started to kick in. Around Easter 2014 I started experiencing low back pain, but only when I am lying down to sleep. Some nights are ok, but other nights it's really painful. When it is bad I find it very difficult to turn over and even if I ...

Hi! My name is Daniel.

I'm a 37 yo Hispanic male with a confirmed history of transverse myelitis (dx by MRI with contrast in 2004 with lesion at c5-c7 level). I took a MRI without contrast on July 11th 2014. I don't have the report in from of me, so I'll have to paraphrase from memory. I think I saw a T1 and Flair somewhere on the report regarding the type of MRI used, but like I said before, no ...

MS Medication Selection

Hello all,

I am writing this on behalf of my mother (49y.o) who is "diagnosed" with RRMS since April 2014. How it all started: for about a week in February 2014, she had extreme ringing/roaring in the ears yet at the same time sensitivity to sound; lightheadedness and extreme vertigo; headaches; fatigue; brain fog. Her PCP ordered MRIs of the brain and spinal cord which revealed white matter lesions in the brain, warranting a visit ...

Greetings from a name perhaps forgotten!

It has been nearly four years since I have posted anything in this forum. My neglect can be attributed to, well, living life!

I had the Liberation Treatment performed in Albany on August 13, 2010. Since then, I have taken zero- ZERO- meds to manage my MS. I have also had zero relapses. Frankly, I am just fine.

My weekends, formally used to recover from those nasty Avonex side effects, are now filled with activity. ...

Advise Please!! :(

Hi guys. I'm a 24 year old female with no known family history of MS. I started noticing my symptoms about a year ago. It started with tingling and numbness in my hands, especially in the late evening or nighttime. I seem to be clumsy... Dropping things all the time, knocking into things, hot flashes and feeling tired all the time.

In the last few months they've definitely gotten worse. The tingling and numbness happens ...

Do these symptoms add up to MS? Doctor says no...

I have a friend who has not been diagnosed with MS but she is worried that she might have it.

She is 40 and caucasian. She first noticed symptoms about three years ago when she was pregnant.

She would suddenly get very quickly passing vertigo-like symptoms… especially is she stood up quickly or again for no reason at all.

That comes and goes still to this day. All of the symptoms below are reoccurring randomly. ...
