Hello. I was just diagnosed yesterday with Ms. I had been experience off and on weakness, numbness on the right side of my body for about week. I did not have a primary yet till april so I finally went to the er because even though the episodes do not happen very long or every day I was getting really concerned. They did a MRI and found spot on the brain and cervical area. They tried to do a lumbar puncture but could not get any fluid. I was given vitamin D to take for not and no other medications since the symptoms arent happning all the time. I am not waiting for the specialists office to get back to me to set up and appoinment with him to see what we need to do. I am very scared because my mom had ms and fought for 10 years but it was not enough and passed away in 98. I know lots of things have changed since then, and everyone is different. My uncle also has ms but you would never know. So for now I am scared, and angry, but I will remain as optimistic as i can.
