Horrible Spasticity

I've been dealing with horrible spasticity since April and has gotten worse. I don't sleep much anymore at night and I work full time. My MRI shows no changes (minimal) and thoracic spine has no lesions. I've tried so many medications including sativex. I'm so tired and done with it all. I've also tried amitripyline, carbonmezipine, sinemet, quinine, nabilone and nothing. Please help....

MS and goofing around with it with friends

Hello guys,
I wanted to know if some of you let your friends joke around with your MS. Well, I let my friends do it at first after I got diagnosed. It helped me to relax about it and not feel so bad about it. For an example, if some of my body part, like the arm or finger was bleeding I would say "Well there goes my MS", innocent stuff like that.

Natural help for bladder issues

I've developed what is for me a mostly-annoying heightened sense of having urine in my bladder. It's like my bladder muscle says "hey guess what, you could pee right now if you wanted to!" even though I don't want to, and don't really need to - but it feels like I could. The frequency is annoying.

Anyway, I happened upon some research that suggested that pumpkin seed oil helps. I've been taking it for about ...

He moved to a university doing his job as an animal technician 4 years ago. His work was unaware of his condition until recently. Last March he had a major relapse and was out of work for 10 ...

Disabled welfare in your country

Hi Fellow MS'ers

Therefore and in order for me to discuss with the social service locally; I'd need a list or a link of what would your country do if you were in my situation (financial help, transport, reductions etc...).
