Update...2 years later...I have more function in my arm/hand...Thank goodness! Having had "mental diseases" all my life, I experienced some EXTREME PARANOIA for about 3-4 months where I was in and out of reality. Called my neuro who said I was "depressed" and to see my psychiatrist because paranoia had NOTHING to do with MS or the medicine I'm on. Well I finally found a Nuero who was trained in this century, who just happens to be an MS specialist down at MUSC in Charleston, SC. Wonderful doctor! Apparently, paranoia IS a part of MS (well, can be, though not typical)...I feel so much relief knowing I'm not going crazy. It appears it was all in my head...literally! Does anybody else experience "mental problems" associated with their MS?View Thread
