In testing - desperate for help

Hello,

I am currently being tested. All bloodwork came back normal, no deficiencie ANA normal although during my first major relapse this came back positive at 1:320 ( docs didn't know what this meant at the time tho). Currently waiting for MRI and evoked potentials to come back. To cut a long story short, 2 years ago in October I had a severe flare up of my symptoms (which I had for years but didn't ...

Abdominal weakness and fatigue...anyone else?

Good early morning, folks! As I am about to have lumbar puncture in ten days (lesions already discovered on brain scan) I have been thinking about how a diagnosis could tie up all the loose ends of my health picture from the last 15 years or so. So I'v/e been posting some questions about random symptoms to see if they could be related to undiagnosed MS all this time. For instance, two years ago I ...

New Here. Could Use Some Help

Hey all. Like many here, I'm wondering about the possibility that I may have MS. I'm aware that there's a lot of anxious scared people like me that come on here begging for answers and I know I shouldn't expect any answers nor a diagnosis of any sort.

Hi, I'm new here and new to thinking about MS.

Last week I was diagnosed with optic neuritis when I saw an optometrist for a routine exam. It's actually in both eyes (which I think is sort of uncommon) but worse in the left eye. The optometrist referred me to a neurologist who did a neurological exam and ordered blood work and several MRIs (cervical, brain, orbits). My cervical MRI was done last Friday and ...
