Hi I’m Lauren! I was diagnosed with MS and RA my senior year in high school and I’ve never really had anyone to talk to with similar issues, so here we are!

      What did they do to diagnose you ? I’ve been getting numbness, weakness, uncontrollable muscle spasms, dizziness.. a lot of weird stuff but every time I get checked the doctor just says it’s anxiety

      No way! Nice to meet you 🤗 my main continuing symptom is fatigue. When I was having flare-ups, I had numbness/weakness in my legs, bladder retention, and really bad migraines. I’ve been told that migraines aren’t technically a sign of a flare up so I’m not totally sure. Although my neurologist is doing a great job maintaining that so I’m not in too much pain.
