    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....
  • Mother diagnosed with MS

    Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is definitely an unpredicted disease which affects the Central Nervous System (CNS). More than 2.5 million people is affected across the world. It is a slow progressing autoimmune disease triggered by demyelination of the nerve cells. The disease usually starts when the immune system short circuits and starts attacking the body, particularly, nerve cells or neurons. The immune system releases T-cells which migrate towards nerve cells and cause localized inflammation on the....

    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....

    Multiple Sclerosis

    Anybody get pain and no Doctor wants to prescribe pain relief?? I was diagnosed with MS in 2004, but I also was diagnosed with Fibromygia in 1995. My muscles seem to be getting weaker with anything I do, where before, if I walked or did yard and garden work, I may have been soar, but stronger. Now its like I am getting weaker. I am 63. Doc told me 50/50 in a wheelchair by 65 and I don't think I can handle that!

    MS and Spondylitis

    I was diagnosed with MS in 2001 and am fortunate to have only had one flare since the early stages, even though I haven't taken MS meds since 2006. I am now in the process of trying to get a diagnosis for other symptoms which fit Ankylosing Spondylitis. TNF inhibitors are sometimes used for treatment, however, I've read that they shouldn't be used by MS patients. I'm wondering if anyone here also has Spondylitis and what medication they're taking. Methotrexate is another drug....

    MS support

    I was diagnosed with MS in 2011. I have family support but it's hard to talk to my husband about it. I would like to talk to someone who can understand what I'm going through and not dismiss it. Its hard dealing with this and sometimes I just need someone to talk to that know what I'm going through.

    Having symptoms and taking forever to find out what's causing them

    I am very frustrated at this point. The past year has been awful for me. This may be a long post because I haven't been able to really talk to anyone about this and how it is affecting me because when I first start to say something about it people usually shrug it off and say I am just tired or being lazy. With that said, here it goes. About 10 year ago, I started having difficulty dealing with cold. My hands started to turn really red. I just shrugged it off because I just thought that was a....

    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....
