Symptoms amplified when sick?

Is it normal to have the numbness and tingling seem to amplify when sick? I had a stomach bug crop up today followed by flu-like acheness. My left hand is very tingly today (more than normal). This has happened on a number of occasions when sick.

Normal, or unique to me?

Howdy again. Where I've been and what I've been up to

Well it's a long ass story, but life is good. I've been almost symptom free for several years now. I don't know with 100% certainty if I have ms or not, but a lot has changed over last 4 yrs. I haven't seen my neurologist in several years and while I still have trouble emptying my bladder that's about the only thing wrong with me (besides being borderline crazy), but some of the original members ...

Help in the morning to get ready for work?

My fiancée teaches at a community college. We do not live together yet, I live in a different town. She's been having difficulty getting out of bed, getting ready for work, and getting into her car. I was wondering if you know of a way for her to obtain assistance for those tasks. She does OK with the rest of her day. Thanks, John.

I have only ever had one period, since the symptoms started.The last period, I was in the hospital. That time everything was so overwhelming, I don't remember whether or not symptoms were worse during my period.

Tonight, I started to notice the smokey eyes (looks like I'm looking through a thin layer of smoke)/ painful eyes, jaw pain, over-all facial pain, MS hug, weakness in ...

Question about financial support options for MS

Does anyone know of a good source of information for options in regards to disability to help pay for expenses? I'm not really in a bind financially and my medical expenses are relatively low, but an indirect expense is bleeding us dry.

When I was originally diagnosed with MS, I was the primary care-giver for my two kids (then 6-months-old and 3-years-old). I was keeping them at home 4-5 days a week and sending them ...

Troubles with eating.

Hi all, I have a an issue that I'm not totally sure is related to Ms or not. I've always been a picky eater. I've never cared for certain foods like sharp cheeses for the taste or bell peppers because of the texture. Many other foods I just can't stand and it drives my wife crazy. I could even be eating something like steak or ice cream and it will be obviously good, but half ...
