    Recently Diagnosed...

    I was officially diagnosed this past March, but have been dealing with symptoms for over 2 years. Long story short, I have little to no feeling or sensation in my hands & feet other than the constant burning pins & needles, & now I have difficulty driving... I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I'd go about getting the hand controls for my car? I know there's a class I have to take, etc. but I haven't been able to figure out where to begin... Thank you, your help is....

    M.S?

    I have been fighting for a diagnosis for a few years. I have been tested for everything under the sun. Original Dax was possible m.s. I have lesions shown by mri. Actually first showed 6, then 12, last mri was 16. Spinal tap negative so dr began testing for other things. I have chronic fatigue, muscle numbness, neuropathy in all extremities including my face, just to name a few. I’m dying for answers to what is wrong w me!

    MS

    Good afternoon, i have been really sick for tge last 7 months now,, i suffered from alot of attacks like vision problems, walking problems, tingling and weakness and nausea,, my brain mri showed 2 small lesions but all the other tests was normal.. My problem is that my neurologist said my symptoms are more than what he sees on the mri so he won't diagnose me now and he wait and see as it might be mild brain inflammation that will go on its own... He asked me to wait 4 months and repeat the mri....

    Is it worth mentioning to my doctor?

    Hello, I am a 33 year old Caucasian female. I have not been diagnosed with MS and don't have a family history that I am aware of. However, I seem to have most of the symptoms associated with the disease. My memory is horrible; I can forget what a topic of a conversation was after a small pause and will often forget why I was trying to figure out something in my head, for example this morning I was trying to figure out how much I get paid per day at my job and as soon as I had the simple equation....

    Keeping your marriage together through the MeSs

    Hello everyone, my name is Stephanie and I have been diagnosed with MS for 22 years. My husband and I just celebrated our 26 year anniversary. My husband lately is displaying in different ways that he may be reaching a breaking point in dealing with the MS and the limitations it is putting in his life as far as moving forward. I am trying to communicate understanding, but I don't want to lose him. Feeling stuck and don't know how to help him. He won't go to support groups and is not sure....

    Testing for MS

    One additional thought, after seeing several posts.... I was told by three separate MS "specialists" that the need for lumbar/spinal taps to determine MS was unnecessary. It appeared - in their opinion - that the gold standard was the MRI results. Since this was all around 2006, maybe that has changed? However, I don't know that I would put myself through a spinal tap, when I already had the MRI to confirm the MS. Good luck....and don't let the doctors bully you around. If they....

    Pain medications

    I have had MS since possibly 45. I am now 63. I have been on ultram for many years and it seems to help keep my mind balance and the pain within reason. My regular doctor of many many yrs has retired and I have been feeling like so bullied taking 2 ultrams a day from 4 doctors. Even my primary care that I have been seeing for over a year is telling me the ultram has to go. She also made me give up the few vicodins I got a month when pain broke through. With all this frustration, I now have anxiety....
