I joined the forum I believe back in May of O7! I started showing MS symptoms that persisited for several months. Between then and now I felt better and kinda lost track of the forum. Well now 2 years later my symptoms returned. Once again I began searching the internet trying to find answers. I remembered this forum and how helpful and friendly everyone was, but I couldn't remember the name of the forum. I couldn't find it and I was so upset.... but then I remembered Quix and googled Quixotic and MS forum.... and here I am again!
I am very grateful for everyone here and it is a comfort knowing that I am not "alone".
Thank you to everyone!
I too am a newbie and not dx. I found this site by searching MRI terminology. I have been searching the web since July 07 and this is the 1st one I've come across that feels good. I'm still searching for answers from Neuro's and have seen 2 to date. Had my second MRI last weekend and it came back clean. I did take some of your advice ladies and ordered my medical records so I can look at them myself - you all have been so educating!! Ya know I haven't heard back from either Neuro I've seen about my MRI results. The only way I found out this time was by seeing a Cardiologist by referal of the 1st Neuro I saw. He is actually the 1st DR that has sat down and shown me the MRI. I haven't even seen the 1st one from last July. I'm going to get a 3r and 4th opinion if thats what it takes. I am feeling good this week just visual issues so I'm taking advantage of it!! Thank you all for your support It's so great to feel like I'm not going crazy!! I was beginning to think that all of these symptoms were just in my head.
Take care everyone - hugs and prayers to you all :)

Hi..........I really don't remember how I found this site. I was probably in pain and depressed and was looking for anything new on the horizon for ms. I don't do a lot of research(sounds weird eh?)
I live day to day with this monster and try to be the happiest I can be
I guest you can call me a pollyanna. I do think I should keep up with everything and learn
more I don't want to get too serious and depressed This site and support system in wonderful thanks Linda
I just joined and originally did a google search for a question I had and found this site! Started reading and have stayed! Sooooo glad I did! This is very useful information no matter what! I'm still Undx but there is a lot of info on here for many things and this may help me, or my family or someone I love one day!
From the results thus far, it seems that we have 2 kinds of members. A sizeable minority seem to come here briefly, maybe just to get some basic information, and then don't stay around. It appears that if a member is here 6 months there's a good chance that he or she will stay for the long haul. I have no idea whether these trends seem to apply with other MedHelp forums, or MS forums elsewhere. Wish there were some way of finding out.
