    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....

    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....
