Carpet cleaning business and MS

Hello,

I am very early in the course of MS. I've been mildly symptomatic for about 2 years now. However I am very conscious that the disease will get worse given time. Additionally the costs of supplementation & eating well are causing bit of a pinch on my finances. I therefore need to earn considerably more money than my current income to give myself some financial padding for my uncertain future.

I've been looking into ...

Does anyone have constant neck cracking?

I'm so frustrated with it and I don't know what to do. It cracks all the time. Is it from muscle weakness and if I do strengthening exercises will it stop?
Thx

Making Schwann Cells Young Again....

Better than botox...

"Myelin-making Schwann cells have an ability every aging Hollywood star would envy: they can become young again. According to a study appearing in the May 19 issue of the Journal of Cell Biology, David B. Parkinson (University College London, London, UK) and colleagues have pinned down a protein that returns the cells to their youth, a finding that might help researchers understand why myelin production falters in some diseases.

Wrapped around neurons ...

Relapse but with a positive note

I have very obviously had another relapse. My R leg is dragging and weak and I have balance problems and weakness in my R arm too. As well as the pain all over my lower body.

HELP PLEASE - MY MRI RESULT

Hi,

I'm not Dx as yet. My MRI scan result following first bout of Optic Neuritis is below. The neuro only got the result by phone and gave me a very fast overview which was basically - its not clear but not much we can do. Just wait and see etc etc .

Conclusion Three small areas of T2 hyperintensity are noted on the brain study. The two supratentorial foci in isolation ...

Brain stem lesions

I know very little about these, and of course I didn't think to question and prod the neuro I saw today further. Are these classified as 'classic' MS lesions? I know I've seen enough references to MS and brain stem lesions linked to MS. If in fact I have these (as the neuro I saw today suspects), which would be the cause of headaches/migraines and burning mouth... will copaxone therapy possibly help with these lesions ...

Saw new neurologist today

Since my awesome neurologist is out till the 20th, I saw another neuro today, who does not feel that I am in a relapse, as I am not exhibiting new symptoms. He called it a 'flare'.

So that means, 3 days of steroid by IV no taper period, instead of the original 5 and taper. So that's good news.

I talked with him about my burning mouth situation, and he was very familiar with this ...

MS Symptom???

I don't want to start thinking every little thing that happens to me is MS-related but this has happened once before.

My skin is painfully touch sensitive, from about the waist down but especially on my thighs. It's really hard to describe but touching my skin hurts - I am sitting in a chair at the moment and the pressure of my thigh on the chair is uncomfortable. It's got to the point that I ...
