Chest tightness

I have been having a lot of chest tightness and chest jumping. I have been to the doctor to rule out that it is anything to do with the heart. I get so scared though every time the chest jumps. I cannot get to sleep and it feels so heavy in the middle like I cannot breathe. My doctor put me on an acid reflux type of pill since that's what she thinks is causing ...

What to tell work?

I'm still at the point where my official diagnosis is clinically isolated syndrome, but I'm seeing my new neurologist this week and I'll be pushing hard for him to figure out what's wrong with me. In the meantime, I've quickly deteriorated in the last three weeks since I started a new job. I went from having issues with my left leg that were somewhat manageable to now where I can just barely climb into the ...

Frustration with walking

I'm a nurse, so I've always had a job that requires me to be on my feet. About 9-10 months ago, I noticed that when I got tired of walking, my left leg and foot started bothering me. My foot gets so bad that I can't physically move my ankle at all to pick up my foot. As I swing my leg around, I'm basically just slapping my foot on the ground, if I haven't ...

How do you change careers and keep health insurance?

I have been living with MS for 8+ years. For the most part, things have been fine until recently. I am severely depressed and stressed because I feel stuck. I want out of retail and onto a more meaningful career. I feel like the only way I can afford to live with MS is by working for a major corporation so that I have health insurance. I would love to have the freedom of working ...
