Something positive

All I do on here is vent or complain, and love that I van do that here, but for once I can post something positive.

I received results from my recent MRI and they were pretty good. Less lesions than 3 years ago, to start. I realize the presence or absence of lesions doesn't necessary indicate much as far as disease progression goes.

However, when I was diagnosed 7 years ago they found a large ...

I need a pair of glasses but I cannot adopt them


I have been diagnosed MS 14 years ago and using betaseron for 13 years.

Still my right eye is not as good as the left one but it is really hard to say that it has a persistent problem.

Anyhow, at the first years of my ...

social events

If you and your spouse are invited somewhere, how do you decide if you are going? I have to use a scooter. Walking is extremely difficult. I want to know if I'm being a cry-baby in having to stay at home. Is this normal? Please be as specific as possible.

Sleep Problems

I was wondering if their was anything natural to help me with sleeping thru the night.
I do take Magnesium at night but I am not sure that helps at all.
The doctor did give me Lunesta at one point but I was hoping for something more natural.

Thanks in advance

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.
