Hello, I’m new here

Hello all, I’m new here. My name is Lauren and I’m 24, on the road to being diagnosed. I just thought I would introduce myself!

Maternal grandfather had MS, so this is something my family are familiar with, but it’s something I never imagined having myself. I’ve suffered with health related anxiety for a while, but since going to A&E in January with vision problems and eye pain and starting down this road, I have actually felt surprisingly calm.

Having looked through some posts, I have no doubt of how lovely & supportive this community are. Was sent a link by a relative and opted to join.

Long story short, hi! :wave:

Hi @lauren
Welcome. That’s close to how MS symptoms started for me too: feet pins and needles in primary school, then optic neuritis eye pain and floaters in secondary school; I thought I’d just grow out of it by adulthood.
Hope you get your multiple sclerosis treatment soon.
Best regards,

Another site that might be worth a look is Shift.ms | Forum, Community & Support For Those With MS, as it tends to have a younger membership.
