Is there a benign form of MS? I was diagnosed

Is there a benign form of MS? I was diagnosed 18 years ago and have had episodes periodically throghout that have never changed in severity or caused in progression or additional loss of function. After 8 years my neuroIogist said he felt my form was Benign.I do not see benign listed as a form and I was able to see that at the time he told me that. Is that no longer recognised as a form of MS? Thank you, Cody M

Hi there. I am a 31 year old female. I was diagnosed with MS 14 years ago after an episode of optic neuritis. I then went the next 13 years symptom free until the birth of my second son. When he was 3 months old, I had numbness in my right hand/forearm and my right foot. It went away after about 4 weeks. I went to see a neurologist who confirmed the diagnosis of benign MS. For the last couple of weeks my right had falls asleep while I am sleeping. When I wake, it wakes up but the tip pf my ring finger remains a bit tingly . Does this sound like MS or is it something else? Pinched nerve or CTS?

in 1998 i had a biopsy done on a lesion in the left lobe of my thyroid with a hypoechoic rim. report states it hads the usual appearence of an adenoma. the radiologist wrote a note attatched to the report , probably malignant but will need a thyroid biopsy. the biopsy was benign. its now 2013 and my voice is horse. i cant scream and alot of times only half of my sentences are audible do to my loss of voice especially certain letter sounds. i got a ultra sound and there is one more nodule on my thyroid. the biggest nodule of all three is one centimeter. was sent to ENT.found 5 or more nodules on the larnyx. my question: is it possible the thyrid nodules are cancerous and have spread to my larnyx?

Hi, I am 53 and have Ms. I have been suffering with what my doctor thinks is benign postural vertigo. It all started with a perfusive sweating situation and kind of incoherent talk as I was on the phone when it happened. I called the doc and saw her 2 days later bc I was worried it might have been a TIA. She did a neurological test That was normal.. She also did head tilts looking for nystagmus, but no nystagmus. She thought maybe it was a migraine with ear involvement giving me the slightly spinning feeling despite no nystagmus or headache. That night after seeing her, I began vomiting and had severe spinning. I took antivert the next day and was able to keep food down and liquids. I still have the movement irregularit when getting up from Laing down or turning over in bed. It s much less sever but still there. It s been 11 days. Today when I turned my head to the left, there was vibrating of my brain, for no better explanation. Similarly, when doing the Epley maneuvers, sometimes it feel like a hand comes up under my neck and feels like it s lifting me up a bit. Really strange symptoms, I know, but any ideas? Thanks, Leslie
