Hi 🙂 Just Joined

I was diagnosed with MS in 2014. I had symptoms since 2010 when my feet went numb, i was getting fatigued easily, and headaches with the fatigue. My original sent me to a neurologist for testing to see why i had numbness. When I went back to see this doctor she said everything was fine and no need for any follow ups.

I ended up with a few herniated discs a year later which made me unable to work, and was send to a neurologist for pain treatment and to keep an eye on the injury since now a nerve in my back is pinched.

Almost 3 years later I got more symptoms and was sent for an MRI, lumbar puncture (which had to be done twice), and tons of blood work. Once i was diagnosed i started treatment and it has been a roller coaster.

Just recently I had to change neurologists and ended up with the same one that did testing in 2010. Turned out that he wanted me to see for more testing. So i could have had MS since 2010 and had no Idea. So he wanted to do MRIs and put me on Gilenya. Then he told me that I have a few more legions on my brain and new ones on my Spinal cord.

I was thinking about having 1 more child, and was wondering if anyone had a baby after findingout they had MS?

Hello! My MS nurse informed me that women with MS can have healthy pregnancies. In fact sometimes the symptoms ease off during pregnancy. Ask your neurologist and gynecologist about this.


What I've read is that pregnancies will actually cause you less MS problems but afterwards sometimes it comes back with a vengeance. Check with your neurologist. Good luck
