Hi all new to this or any forum so please forgive any mistakes. I have had severe pain for last two and half years and just diagnosed with ms. My neuro sent me to specialist after mri showed two new lesions in month. She put me on copaxone which still waiting for but did not address any symptoms. Went back to gp and she says specialist will have to treat. What do i do about horrible joint pain and migraines and numb legs and feet. Need a direction to go to get the symptoms that have gone on for yrs treated. Very lost on this and i would appreciate any help offered

Freya thanks so much for the info and your time to read and post. My filling may have been the cause(since none really seems to know for sure what causes an autoimmune) but my trouble all started after having a root canal and a pulled tooth. I had constant shock pains in my face and was dx with trigemenal neural. From this all symptoms have followed except migraines. As a result i have had every tooth with that filling material pulled due to dentist telling me eachwas a lost cause. I wish i knew exactly what was the cause but since there is no hope for that i am looking for a way to improve symptoms. I have accepted i will probably never be where i was physically before this all started and have made many adjustments to compensate. Now i am to the point of being satisfied if i could play catch with my son without worrying about the pain. Again thank you so much for taking the time.

I would address it to your Dr. again and if no results.... get a second opion. That is what I would do.... hope this helps
