Those with writing/drawing problems

Is it common to lose your ability to write or draw with multiple sclerosis since its possible? If you had that kind of bad luck, how do you deal with it? And what other ways could you write? I'm suddenly new here and I've been having similar symptoms of this disease but haven't had a diagnosis yet. I can't afford it and ms is very tricky to diagnose. I'm 23 years old. It's been two ...

Potential New Symptoms

I've been having a helluva time lately. I've been on Tecfidera for months now - probably about four, and it's only recently that I've been experiencing some sudden and sometimes rather severe instances of what is I'm sure either a side effect from the medication, or a symptom of my MS becoming more active again. (I was diagnosed Jan 6 2016 after three years of sudden long-term numbness in arms, legs, and trunk). About a ...

I made a movie with other MS people

I wanted to show people MS does not have to stop you living. You can still live and do things even though you're retired or sitting in wheelchair like I am.

The shortmovie is non-profit, free and bilingual, Finnish and English.

Enjoy!

Big Data

Some time ago I discussed problems with Facebook. However, Facebook is just a symptom of a much larger issue.

Here's an interesting documentary that discusses how big data is used and the coming tsunami of the role of big data in our lives, The Human Face of Big Data.

The irony of posting this here is not lost on me...

anyone like me?

It has been almost two decades. Drugs, no drugs and drugs again. Therapy, therapy and more therapy. Drop foot and though FES gave me hope at one time is helping just a bit. Still better than nothing. Left side of body weak. Hand strength weak. Hands always cold. Fingerless gloves everywhere. Can't cut food and find it hard to do simple tasks. Awful getting to bathroom especially at night. Left leg gets so stiff. Barely ...

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....

So I've noticed lately that along with the pain in my left arm and leg that my muscles seem to get fatigued really fast lately. Holding something like in my arm, even something lightweight, starts to hurt really fast. Anyone else have this going on?

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.
Now the ...
