How to cope?*

I'm new here and I'm not really sure if this is where I should put this. I was diagnosed on Monday and I am stilly really confused/angry/upset. I'm a college student and I am having issues with my cognition. I need some coping help and I'm not sure if I should call my neurologist or not. This is a new symptom… Read More

Left arm and leg jerking *

I guess that is how I would describe it. It's like my arm has a mind of its own at times. I started the day semi OK compared to yesterday. Yesterday I couldn't even hold myself up then today I'm doing better in some ways. But after awhile I started getting these spasms or whatever you want to call them. Anyone… Read More

hi I have been with my partner for 11 years. He was diagnosed with MS before we met. He has always been highly functional, with walking distance being his main problem. However, he’s also very good at covering things up. People know he has MS but he doesn’t want to look disabled.  In the past few years… Read More

facial tingling?

Hi everyone, new to this lovely group. I haven't been diagnosed with MS but all my symptoms seem to fitted almost to a T. I've seen two rheumatologists so far and they ignore everything I say and chop things up to different things. My primary doctor knows something is up but is just as frustrated as me. She is… Read More

Metalmantha

Diagnosed RRMS around 6yrs ago. Presented with Lhermitte's sign (I get an electric shock when I put my head down), and pain in my leg which lead to drop foot (which I received steroids for and that leg has been fine since). Nothing obvious since then, and was even starting to 2nd guess my diagnosis... until… Read More

I spent years not knowing what is wrong with me because I could not stand and have a conversation at the same time without feeling like my lungs were being squeezed and I was going to faint. Well, one day I did faint and was sent to a cardiologist to learn that my heart rate rises dramatically when standing… Read More

Please help Leasons disappeared.*

Ok so I ended up going to the hospital because I thought I was having a stroke or flare up or something going on. The whole left side of my body was messed up from my face to my arm and leg. I don't understand this stuff but when they where checking me out they were checking my motor skills and reflexes and… Read More

Signs of MS *

hi, about 3 years ago my partner had optic neuritis and was treated for it at the time they queried ms but he had no other symptoms so it wasn’t taken any further. Since then he got very mild nerve like pain in the same spot over and over. It has come back now but quite severe nerve pain, he is seeing a dr… Read More

difficulty writing*

I can type fine but I have a hard time writing penmanship.  It's like my hands won't move to make the letters in cursive.  Print is not great either but is better than my cursive.  Does anyone have this problem? Read More

Strabismus

Has anyone here gotten Strabismus as a result of an MS attack? I used ot have strabismus or "lazy eye" when I was a child, and after a year of wearing a patch, it went away. Then 25 years later, after my first MS attack, it came back! It interferes with my ability to read and see straight so bad that Im getting… Read More

Hello, My goal is to get some insight on how others who struggled to find a diagnoses finally did. I'm miserable with all MS symptoms and have a clean MRI's of brain and spine (with a few dots in the frontal lobe, which they aren't worried about), so neurologists don't have answers. I have bad episodes that… Read More

My son has some symptoms *

Has anyone felt as though it’s beginging to rain and you feel the first droplet. Then when I go to look, it’s completely dry? Or for instance, yesterday I thought my water bottle in my bag was leaking because it felt as though water was spilling onto my toes through my cloth loafers and then look and notice… Read More
