"Do I have MS?"
This question is asked by many everyday. This forum is for those with chronic MS-like signs and symptoms who remain undiagnosed. Those who are diagnosed with MS, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Vitamin B-12 deficiency, or any other similar illness are strongly encouraged to join the group and share your first-hand experience. Your sound advice and knowledge will help many.
Family and friends of patients dealing with any of the above conditions, diagnosed or not, are also urged to post. We could not get through this difficult time without "offline" support.
For some, the largest problem with getting diagnosed is difficutly in differentiating Multiple Sclerosis from other illnesses. One of the largest forms of education and support through this world of unknown is reading personal experiences, definitions, and stories from others. The textbook classifications are wonderful and useful. However, they are dry and leave many with more questions. Nothing replaces being able to identify with people just like you, who really know the nuts and bolts of what this adventure is like. Let's share, learn, and support each other through this!
