Losing Hope

Hi everyone, I am a 25 year old male. I have constantly been seen by multiple doctors at Kaiser, and I still have no clear answers to what is wrong. To begin, I have had these symptoms since late February 2014. My symptoms are: fatigue, blurry vision(occasionally), weak legs that give out on my everyday, my right side strength is weaker than my left( hands and legs), I have constant headaches/migraines, muscle spasms in arms ...

Transcranial Doppler

Did anyone have a trans cranial Doppler done in regard to MS? I went to the neurologist the other day and she did a trans cranial Doppler (results were "a little stiff"?) and now I have a brain MRI, a sleep study and a carotid ultra sound scheduled. I am currently undiagnosed.

Thanks for any information. I'm not sure if this is related to MS or a different condition.

Does everyone experience hairloss in Aubagio?

I've been recently diagnosed with rrms and the doctors have prescribed me Aubagio.

Does everyone on this treatment experience hairloss? I'm a 39 year old male and pretty darn proud to have retained a youthful appearance and full head of hair. Thanks for the advise.

Electric Shocks in the Chest

I am writing on behalf of my father who was diagnosed with MS over 30 years ago. He is currently suffering from electric shocks on the left side of his chest. The first time it hit him about 4-5 years ago, we thought he was having a heart attack the pain was so severe. Since then he has had this happen on a number of occasions but never as severe as the first time and ...

Every test but brain MRI neg for MS, Neuro still wants to Dx

Hi Everyone,

New here and in a weird situation. Of course, we all are, but mine seems like the inverse of most people's stories and I don't know what to think!

A year ago I had a sudden hearing loss in left ear. I was supposed to get an MRI but blew it off b/c of other health issues I was dealing with. A couple months ago my PCP insisted I have one. The result ...

Bioness L300

Unfortunately and $6000 later, I have not had good results at all with the Bioness L300 system. The customer support has been dismal and, I hate to post these negative reviews but, if it saves just one person from having to go through what I have been through with Bioness, it is worth it. Once they sold me the product, they would have me go 20 miles away from where I live for adjustments. I ...

1st followup since dx

Typing on a tablet,some punctuation is a pain to get to so im skipping most of it.

Ive debated off and on doing the usual background info as far as symptoms etc. but since everything is so varied... I might as well comment on how i farted purple for a month and it would seem almost normal to folks dealing with this garbage, and completely alien to those that arent. So ill skip unless someone ...
