So, I've recently been diagnosed with RRMS. I've had a few symptoms come and go over the years and mostly dismissed them. Except both of my hands went numb this summer while hiking Grand Canyon and I couldn't hardly keep my grip on my trekking poles.

I went to the doc thinking maybe I did something to my neck. My first words to him were "Whatever you do, just don't tell me this is MS." A few MRIs, blood tests and a LP later....it's MS.

I just started Copaxone 40mg this past week, changed my diet to more paleo-ish, upped my omega 3s and vitamin D3, and read almost everything in this board. I also contacted the PVA since I think my first documented symptom was 5 months off of active duty. Cheers!
