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.

Has anyone been on disability and tried to return to work?

Hi,

I have discussed this with my neurologist & he agrees I should take baby steps. I have reviewed the information regarding the Ticket to Work program through social security; however, I am also interested in the experiences ...

Disability claims

Hello all,

I am a 38 year old special education teacher, and I was dianosed with MS over 3 years ago. I have been working through dizziness, pain, and incredible fatigue since then. My job is very physical, and stressful. I have fallen at work a few times since school began, and I am considering applying for disability. Has anyone had any success in applying through either social security or their pension fund? Thanks for ...

Bladder issues?

Hi all,
I'm a little concerned. I have never had bladder issues (except when I was pregnant of course). But last night, while I was sleeping, I peed the bed. I'm 23, how embarrassing. The really concerning thing is when I realised it and stood up to change, it was still coming out, there was nothing I could do to stop it. Has anyone else had this happen? Is this an MS thing? I have ...
