    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi there, don't be afraid of MS. Just learn all you can about this dis-ease because it's the "not-knowing" that scares you. The doctor that told me I had MS ten years ago had me think that I was going to "die" soon! Just ask your docs (medical and neurologist ALL the questions you can think of until you have a good understanding of MS and also find out what TYPE of MS you have (relapsing-remitting, progressive, etc.) Also, check out the website : NATONALMSSOCIETY.ORG, or Google or Bing the name. Alsi, find a support group in your area! Take care! Irma.

    what kind of test did you have? I know I am scared too. I have the symptoms and have had MRI and CAT scans and blood test. All the doctors that I have been to want to just brush me off because I am on state medicaid not a private insurance. But I am here to listen and be supportive to you.
