    Diagnosis

    Hi there I have been having symptons for a couple of years now and the doctors can't seem to figure out exactly what I have.

    My daughter Mandy is 38 and has MS now for about 15 years. She needs help and I just don't know where to turn anymore.

    Right eye very sensitive to light

    I am an MS patient and been dealing with different maladies. I am taking Gilenya for the MS. Just recently my right eye only has become very red, very painful, and very sensitive to light.
