Fall is coming!

I've always been a fan of fall with the weather, holidays, and scenery it brings but this year is more significant to me. Even though we had a relatively mild summer the heat was really starting to get to me. I'm thankful that all I had was decreased energy and increased grogginess but the onset of the lower temperatures has me happy. I will have the ambition to get out and do the things I ...

Spasticity effects me greatly in my legs and I'm stretching all day long to try to maintain the range of my muscles (it's a battle that I am, I'm afraid to say, losing very slowly). One thing that I have found which helps greatly for foot drop and clonus is to sleep with my feet flat against the wall at the end of my bed. I turned my bed around to face the wall just ...

Lyndacarol, question.

I didn't want to mess up the liver thread with this.
When pre-diagnosis and after, my upper stomach would burn/itch inside. I set a chiropractor appt for my gait, and went to the GP for my stomach. I thought I had pancreatic cancer. The GP chuckled at me and told me I was much too young for that. I don't have good news, though, he said. Anything you tell me is fine I said, ...
