If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.


I recently had an episode of uncontrolled "shivering." I would shiver and shake for maybe 10-15 minutes, then it would subside for a while, then come back. This went on all afternoon and evening. When I woke up the next day, it was gone. I don't even know if it was M.S. or something else, since I don't have the flu or cold or anything else.
I do not take DMDs.

Thoughts, anyone?

Hydration - more to it than you may think

Even if you’re not exercising, you lose about 10 cups of water each day, according to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

I have stopped drinking reverse osmosis filtered water and the positive results on my hydration status and well being have been shocking.

Rebif and Red Spots

I have been on Rebif for about 2 years now. I didn't have any problems in the beginning, but my injection site reactions are not fun here lately. I am covered in red circles from every injection. They aren't painful. Just there. One on my arm was very itchy at first, but otherwise fine. Also, when I give myself the injection, shooting the Rebif in hurts like hell. Not the needle...the actual medication going into ...
