My name is Jen, I'm new here (obviously)... and as most other people here, I have MS. I was diagnosed at 14, and I'm just about to turn 20. How time flies.
I'm just wondering if anybody else would be able to share the symptoms they've had with "juvenile" MS (despite myself not being so young anymore). I've been pretty lucky to be in remission for the past 2 years or so, but I still get the odd thing here and there. Lately it seems like migrains are my issue, along with weak spells. I just all of a sudden feel really weak like I'm going to collapse, and I can feel myself falling forward just an inch or two before I catch myself. I've never heard of anybody else having anything like this, so I don't know if it's MS related or not. So pretty much, any help is great!
My girlfriend was diagnosed a couple of months ago after an attack that caused spasticity on her right arm and leg (she is 24,not exactly juvenile,however noone had answered your question so i thought i would give it a go!)
4-5 months prior to this she had been suffering from severe headaches for some time,for which we visited a few doctors without determining their cause-so now think that they could be related with MS.From what i read in this forum though headaches/migraines are not very common MS symptoms.
I'm happy you are doing so well at the moment,are you on any drugs or other regimen?
