A forum dedicated to the younger people living with MS reflecting their unique concerns.

Turning 25 tomorrow.

I suppose that I have graduated from this sub-forum.

---

    Every year without knowing it I have passed the day
    When the last fires will wave to me
    And the silence will set out
    Tireless traveler
    Like the beam of a lightless star

    Then I will no longer
    Find myself in life as in a strange garment
    Surprised at the earth
    And the love of one woman
    And the shamelessness of men
    As today writing ...

19 With MS

I was diagnosed a year ago after having a seizure in my dorm room and waking up blind at age 18. Since then, I've had botched spinal taps, bad drug reactions and little hope. Luckily, I changed doctors and am now feeling better than ever. I've taken my experiences and started a blog, especially for women with MS, in which I discuss medications, healthy recipes, MS friendly exercise and more. Here's the link for anyone ...

New

Diagnosed less than a month ago. Since then I have tried taking to "intensive nutrition" and Vitamin D supplements. Working on improving that regimen all the time.
Anyway, a little about my sitch: I'm a full time college student from the PNW about to turn 22. First symptom, some tingling and numbness in right foot, stiff knees. Leading to diagnosis-nystagmus.
Right now I am in the middle of an exacerbation. Steroids got rid of the ...

How to get diagnosed in the early stages / at a young age.

Lately, I've noticed my legs have been jumpy and twitchy. I googled it out of boredom, and when ms came up, I was drawn to it because my aunt has it. I've experienced blurred vision. I used to have phenomenal vision. Now I can't read things I used to be able to. It comes and goes. I'm always exhausted. Even if I get twelve hours of sleep, I'll come home from school and fall asleep ...

Newly "Unofficially Diagnosed" and Scared.

Hi,
My name is Amber.
I was recently hospitalized due to my body from the neck down going numb, and since this was not the first time I'd had numbness they did alot of tests.

They are fairly sure I have MS, but I cannot be officially diagnosed until I get into the MS clinic, and my appointment there isn't until late October.

I've been experiencing a myriad of symptoms and each one scares me ...

Relationships?

So I am curious, how many people out there have got into a relationship after their diagnosis that has been so far successful? I wonder because my first exacerbation was somewhat responsible for the ending of my last relationship and now I find myself wondering every now and then if I will ever meet someone who will accept me with my disease and I wonder if anyone should even have to deal with this but ...
