Are mornings bad?

I was just curious if it is common to feel the worst right after you get up in the morning. I was dx'd in 2001 with ppms and as it has progressed, I have noticed that the mornings are brutal. I have strange shuddering symptoms and this profound sense of illness that goes away after I "wake up". For me thats about 2 hrs. This disease produces such different symptoms in each person you never ...

Just hit a chord

He has fought a hard battle to keep walking, which he can only do these last 10 years if he hangs onto something and not for any distance. He has shoveled dirt on his knees, laid stone, cut floor boarding, made the bed and anything else he could do from a kneeling position. His arms are strong and his mind is good. I don't want him to only walk in his dreams. I want to ...

neuropsych assessment and cognitive retraining

Hi there

I recently underwent a full neuropsych evaluation and I just wanted to say that I found the whole process very interesting. The professor who conducted the assessnment was very warm and empathetic and although it was long and exhausting (6 hours over 2 days), the report was an eye opener!

What is this?

Yesterday I felt under the weather all day with a sore neck. In the evening, while at the theatre watching Harry Potter, my left shoulder, side of my neck, half of my torso and my entire arm started these waves of horrible pain.

About every minute it would come and go, and lasted about two hours. Then, it was completely gone. It was really bad.

Does this sound like an MS attack? Or maybe the ...

A parent's courage

I am new to this site and have recently discovered that I have ms. My mother who is no longer with us (rest her soul) was diagnosed in 1988. I watched her struggle with the disease for 15 years before it took her life I know they say it wasn't actually the ms that did it was actually an aorta aneurism but the ms was a contributing factor. From what I understand from her nuerologist ...

Walking Into Things

Hi all,

Just a little effort to try and laugh at something that would be easy to get upset about...since the MS, my peripheral vision hasn't been the same. So, when I'm not looking directly at something, I may miss out on something. Yesterday, after my first attempt at returning to exercise for awhile, something caught my eye while walking towards the exit of the club. I walked forward and reached my hand out to ...

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 ...
