Multiple Sclerosis

Posted by @whitway in Brain & Nervous System, Jul 7, 2011

Anybody with Multiple Sclerosis? I was just diagnosed myself on 4/22/11 by Dr Carter at Mayo Scottsdale, AZ and my Sister who is a year younger was diagnosed over a year ago.

Hi. I have had ms since 1995 and am fairly knowledgeable about it. I recommend that you take one of the interferon drugs for it. What were your symptoms and how are you feeling now.

I've been on rebiff for 3 months now. My symptoms were numbness and tingling, pain down the right arm and hand. Pronunciation issues, Cognitive Issues, Balance, Fatigue. Now that I'm in remission fatigue and insomnia prevail. Overall feeling better. How about you Artist?

I have to say that I have tried the Interferons and I had allergic reactions to all of them and they put me in the E.R. I was told the reasoning for the reaction's was because I have secondary progressive MS. I am in a current relapse now as I am on IV solumedrol infusion for vision problems and tremors. Does anyone else experience tremors as well?

Yes. I am 58 years old, was diagnosed 1 year ago. I have had symptoms off and on for 20 years. I have retired this past year after I started falling a lot, having memory , speech, balance, tremors, muscle spasms, bladder incontinence, malaise, heat intolerance for years etc. My doctor put me on Betaseron for the past 7 mpnths.

I am just happy to know what has been wrong for years. I was misdiagnosed for years.

Hi, I've had MS since 1970. It's been very slowly progressive. I was a scuba diver and a commercial artist. Dr. Carter is very good. I do not take any MS medications, just a little Valium for spasticity now and then. I don't recommend any drastic measures.

I was diagnosed almost 2 years ago. Started Avonex right away and did for about 6 months, as it was very hard to tolerate. I then tried Copaxone and in April 2010 decided to stop all drugs. I do more complementary types of treatments: chiropractic, accupunture, exercise and lots of vitamins. I have to say I do feel better overall not being on any treatments.

I have also submitted an essay telling my story as it took 35 yrs to diagnose me with MS.
