Just diagnosed with MS recently/ frightened and curious.

Hello everyone! My name is Donovan and I'm 23 years old. I've been experiencing subtle symptoms of MS since I was roughly 20 years old. Although, I did not understand what was happening for the longest time until I got into a car accident and the symptom of me going temporarily blind showed itself again. My vision will randomly begin cutting out almost as though a bad video connection to a television would simulate! As ...

24 and I feel like an old lady...

Hello ThisIsMS forums.

I'm sure many of you can understand how I feel like such an old person even at 24. With all the symptoms (I am undiagnosed but i feel a lot of my symptoms point to MS, i'm still going through testing and numerous doctors appointments. I know neither you nor I can say whether it is MS or not.)
It's downright aggravating when things are happening to you but aren't readily noticed ...

Possible Symptoms at 25?

Hi Guys,

I am 25 years old and have recently had some tinnitus which has been getting progressively worse. I had a hearing test and blood test done. The bloods came back fine, hearing test found slight loss of low frequency hearing but nothing too uncommon.

Over the past week or two, the tinnitus has become louder. It's still manageable but slightly bothersome. I've started getting headaches but they are in the back, right side ...

Im not quite sure if I have it.

Basically it's this electric vibration thing that starts at the top of my spine and goes all the way down my back.

Also, L'hermittes' says it doesnt hurt, but mine pinches.
One last thing, some times my ...

A Month of Symptoms, Just Diagnosed

Hello,

I'm trying to make sense of my confirmed diagnosis of ms. At times I feel overwhelmed and want to cry and have the world go away. I grew up knowing a friend's father who had ms and had no ability to walk and had to use a powered wheel chair. While, I know from reading and from others' experiences, multiple sclerosis doesn't always progress to that level.

To begin with, I had numbness and ...

Which way to go?

Hello,

I'm 20 years old. For the past 5 or 6 years I've had problems with my hands and feet stinging when grabbing or stepping on things a certain way. Feels like I'm grabbing and stepping on needles sometimes. I've researched this issue for years, and yes, MS was part of that research, but not a lot of thought was put into it. I've been to the chiropractor a few times (I have minor scoliosis... ...

I'm new to this.

In 2010 I had back surgery due to a disc herniating into my sciatic nerve. It took almost a year for them to do the surgery because I didn't have insurance. After it was all said and done, I did keep my persistent leg pain. It burns almost all day everyday, and my right leg is significantly weaker then my left leg. For the past 2 years muscle spasms have been a major issue as ...
