Fatigue and cleaning the house... Any tips?

I've been taking stock of what my daily tasks are and how I can best prioritize them so that I don't overdo it so badly anymore. This has come about because I'm committed to doing daily 1 1/2 hr power walks with a friend to keep in shape. It's a great thing to do and I love the leg strength it's allowing me. But it sure wipes me right out for the rest of the ...

For years, bacteria have had a bad name. They are the cause of infections, of diseases. They are something to be scrubbed away, things to be avoided.

But now researchers have taken a ...

Why doesn't the pain 'remit' completely?

I have RRMS, and the relapses aren't that common. It's about 1/7-8 months. The problem is that the pain never goes into remission completely. Some of it sticks around, and all they're doing is prescribing me more pain medications to keep it under control. So far they have me on...

600mg of Gabapentin
2 Tylenol 3s (total of 60 mg codeine and 600 mg acetaminophen)
600 mg of ibuprofen.

A cocktail of drugs that I ...

mental symptoms?

i wasn't diagnosed until about 8 months now, but in hindsight, does MS effect anyone elses memory or their judgement. because i was told my MS effects my judgement, i.e saying things when they shouldn't be etc., has anyone else had this problem?
Because im quite scared as im going to be taking up a degree in teaching, purely because i can't do nursing anymore and i dont want to fail in my academics because ...

An alcohol and tysabiri cocktail anyone?

well i'm 20 as some of you mmight already know, and enjoy going for a drink with friends, but ever since my diagnosis and beggining of treatment i've tried to stay clear of any or much alcohol consumption, but i would like to regain something of a social night life with friends, my questions today are;
Does alcohol effect the effectiveness of tysabiri ( natilizumab) and does anyone else share the same question?

trouble with friend not understanding?

Hi folks - my first visit here. I have MS - DX'd now over 10 years ago.
I was just wondering - anyone have issues with friends not understanding the difficultes of MS - and especially the cognitive problems?
I had a disagreement with a close friend - she hurt my feelings, and I got angry. Sure , I over reacted. After things cooled off, I apologised. I tried to explain that sometimes this happens, ...

Slo-mo microbes

Slo-mo microbes extend the frontiers of life

Community in the deep seabed uses so little oxygen that it is no longer clear where the lower bound for life lies.

wildlife is cool

so there's this random black bear wandering around my work. several confirmed sightings now. and we're hiking the canyon again tomorrow. so yeah. i brushed up on what to do in case of a bear encounter, but i'm just counting on my group being noisy enough to keep this guy at a distance, and i'm going to train the kids as well before we start.

Has anyone been bothered by police for public intoxication?

The symptoms that most likely suggested it at the time were my cog-fog, vertigo, slurred speech and 'unnatural happiness'. The first three are direct symptoms, but the last one is usually just me trying to get people to stop feeling sorry for me.

This has happened twice now, and I've been wondering if anyone else has had similar problems? Does anybody have any suggestions?

A request...

This may seem like an unusual request - feel free to ignore if it is inappropriate. I represent a group of nursing students in Jacksonville FL - we are scheduled to give a presentation on MS to our classmates next week. Rather than just talking about the disease, we thought our presentation could make more of an impact if we included discussion of what it is like to live with MS. We are looking for ...
