If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

I've just been diagnosed for a couple of months. I'm realizing that alot of what has been going on with me is related to the MS and I just didn't know it. The last half of last year, I couldn't get enough sleep. It was so hard to get up in the morning and go to work and when I got home I just crashed. And then on weekends I would sleep all I possibly could. During the day around mid day I would always want to go to sleep at work. I've been out of work for a few weeks because of problems I'm having with my leg and other things.....and I still get tired so easily. A trip to the grocery store can be exhausting.

I was wondering if anyone else on here gets the shakes when they get really tired?

Tremors: Learning to stop the shakes
"Metabolic disturbances that affect the brain and may produce tremors include drugs, alcohol, mercury poisoning, hyperthyroidism, hypoglycemia, or vitamin deficiencies (magnesium, thiamin)."

Possible mechanisms of the formation of chronic fatigue syndrome in the clinical picture of multiple sclerosis
"It can be suggested that in some patients, metabolic causes play a significant role, particularly
derangements to electrolyte (potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium) metabolism."

Red blood cell magnesium and chronic fatigue syndrome
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 369191371Z
"Patients treated with magnesium claimed to have improved energy levels, better emotional state, and less pain, as judged by changes in the Nottingham health profile"
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

I get kinda shaky when I keep going and dont stop because I think I can but my body tells me other. I'm so sick of being tired. I love working in my garden but I now get dizzy when I try to work in it (bending over) and I can only work for about 20 minutes befor I need to sit down. Then I need to sit down and rest before I can get going again. So stupid.
