Hi, I'm new =)

Hi, I'm new here and I just wanted to see how this all works. The reason I came here in the first place is because my mom has had MS for the last 16 years. She has been up and down the last couple of years and now I can really tell that she is getting steadily worse. It really hurts me to see her this way because she used to be such an active, vibrant person. I'm scared for her and I don't know how to help or even if I can help her.
Also, I am now kinda getting worried because some weird things happening to me and I know that MS can run in families. The things that have been happening are really small. I feel bad for even being worried about myself after I read some posts of all yours. Really all that has happened is some cloudy vision for a very short time, I've been light headed and felt nauscious(sp?), and for the last couple of weeks, my pinky toe on my left foot has been numb. I know I probably shouldn't even get all freaked out about it, because it doesn't seem to be half as bad as some of the posts I've read on here. I might just be over-reacting but I would like to know what some of you think.
Thanks a bunch. I think all of you guys are awesome for helping each other out like this. =)

Re: Hi, I'm new =)

I am sorry to hear that your mom's condition is progressing. You should see your doctor and tell him your symptoms and your family history. I hope that it is just coincidence that they are similar to MS and there will be another cause. Best Wishes.
