 I have experienced weight loss since being diagnosed with MS.  Has this happened to anyone else???  I am starting to wonder if its something else.........

No. In fact, I experienced a weight gain, primarily because of lack of physical activity, coupled with steriod treatments which always seem to add pounds.

If you're experiencing a weight loss you should for sure talk with your doctor. It could be MS, or it could be that you're not eating (which can happen if you are depressed), or for many other more serious reasons.

I lost about 10 pounds after my diagnosis, which I attribute completely to stress. I was in shock, depressed and having panic attacks. I ate, but my body was in panic mode and I dropped pounds like crazy for that first month or so.
