asthma

Postby gwa » Tue Nov 21, 2006 10:32 am

None of my relatives or me ever had asthma or herpes.

I could list a LOT of things that I never had, including multiple sex partners, that some researchers link to the possibility of getting diagnosed with MS.

I had asthma as a child. I thought I outgrew it. They tell me it often comes back as an adult.

Hi Bob

I have nothing from the list. Have a first cousin with suspected RA.

I do have an allergy to dairy. And stress related eczema (sp?).

We have already had the conversation about trauma. I am still unsure whether my problems are all MS related. (Still in denial perhaps??). :?

Best wishes

J.

hey no problem
i hadnt really thought about until ya had mentioned it..then i started to think of the past couple of yrs and what the dr's have said in the past to me about my immune system not being the greatest and how i should really watch myself..and again i work in health care...hmmm i might want to think of a change in job.....lol.....but just the other day my dr made me get the flu shot..never got it in my life but she said with everytthing going on she wanted me to take it.....soooo i did...lol..anyways i have other things they find interesting also..lived up in alaska when i was a kid for 5 yrs...so they think that is another reason for everything....but who knows...lol....good way of making me think of things thanks for asking about that stuff.....learn something new everyday...

Bob
FYI
I just had a total hysterectomy on 11/9. I only tell you this because on the list is endometriosis, which I had. Didn't know I had it until the surgeon performed the operation. It had even grown onto my bladder.

This summer I also dealt with breast cancer, caught very early.

I am convinced that all that I have been dealing with could be related to my MS. Not a causation, just somehow interrelated. I just don't know how at this point as I am not up to doing much research into it as yet.

I appreciate all research you and others are doing as I do check this site every day. Once I recuperate I'll post any info I may find.

endometriosis

Postby lyndacarol » Wed Nov 22, 2006 11:31 am

Lori, I agree with all you say. I had a hysterectomy due to endometriosis, also. I didn't know at the time of that diagnosis (1980) that it was autoimmune.

I was diagnosed with MS in September 1992. I'm sure they are all related (see American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association).

Best wishes with your recuperation--it takes a while; don't rush things.

well what i can tell they are going off the enviromental aspect of it..cause ya know some dr think that living somewhere that was really cold like that is something that can cause ms......i never asked to much about it.....but i guess is something they look at also...who knows...anyone else think of the reason that living in alaska would help casue something like ms?
