From what I understand from her nuerologist ...

do you think?

Do you think doctors and neurologists ever read some of the posts on this site? Could they benifit from all the results that people talk about? could they learn something from all your ideas on why and how? Where do all the ideas that they concentrate on come from? Maybe the cure for ms will come from here..

Exercise with NO balance or energy???

How do you go to a gym/run/walk ANYTHING when you can't walk a straight line? I MUST appear to those on the outside to be FOREVER walking in a drunken stupor.

My daughter goes to school a half mile from home and we walk (we're too close for bus service). By the time I get home (my walk is a mile--- there & back), I'm done!!! Forget about asking me to do ANYTHING that requires ...

ranting about a doctor or two

okay i'm really mad. this is not about ms it's about a lady in her 80s. below is the summary of her medical care over the last few years. but it all started with her asking me to look at her bloodwork results the other day. she had her CBC results and her MPV, MCH, MCV, and her RDW were all high. now, the history.

Blenophobia--Whoops!

I accidentally hijacked the previous thread with this posting--hit the wrong button. Please forgive me, I intended a new topic:


After looking through the forums without finding the perfect fit, I am putting this new (to me, anyway) vocabulary word here. The subject affects the daily life of so many of us!

From a recent AARP publication came this information:

20 million Americans have blenophobia--or fear of needles--according to a recent study.

Shall we make ...
