Bowel Incontinence

Hi. I was diagnosed 2 years ago. Today I had the most embarrassing moment of my life to date. I felt the need to go to the bathroom at work and went to 3 different bathrooms. I work Oil&Gas so the last one was the shop floor restroom. I was having difficulty holding it with all the walking as they aren't close. I had to wait on a stall opening all while trying to play ...

Just Diagnosed, Not sure what to do about my work

Hi Everyone,

I am 27yr old female and I was just diagnosed with MS on Thursday Feb 20th, 2014. I had my first event in Mary 2013 which manifested as sudden buzzing in my feet, that spread all the way up to my thighs in a couple of days, and was the same in both legs.

I am new to this forum, but have been living with MS since 2011. I consider it a mild case because it doesn't really impact my abilities yet (a lot of numbness and tingling in my left hand and leg, but no real loss of function... I'd say 98% functionality).

Given the unique nature of the disease and how everyone experiences symptoms differently, I haven't had much interest or need to reach out to others ...

New here

Hello everyone,

This is my first post here, so please be patient.

My husband was diagnosed with MS 10 years ago after optic neuritis took most of his sight.

He was on Betaseron until about six months ago, when he changed doctors, and was put on copaxone
because he kept having relapses.

Since going on the Copaxone he has lost his appetite, and eats very little. He says food just gags him. He has lost ...

New and Med Free

Hi I just jumped on this site today looking for others who are taking the natural path like me. I was diagnosed in 2008. I used Copaxone for a year and a half. Due to numerous side-effects or allergic reactions, I quit. I focus on vegan/raw vegan and gluten free diet. I also do yoga, walk and running. I've been symptom free since I quit meds. I also believe that stress or emotional repression has ...
