what is happening

Hi to all. Looks like lots is happening re CCSVI. How does the Golden Years group feel about this procedure. I have been reading since the start and not sure. May ask about blockages when next to a neuro. in Nov. Will be a new one so will see how receptive he is re my problems with Central Nervous System disorder / possible MS. Been over 8 years now. Linda

Gait, walking problem - New

I have had Relapsing / Remitting MS for over 20 years, (diagnosed in 1987) and have managed walking without aids. I have remained active and walk over a mile most days. My neuro doc says that my walking exercise has helped slow the MS progression.

As some background;

I am currently on Copaxone and was a long-time user (13 years) of Betaseron. I had to switch to Copaxone when I found that Betaseron was no ...

any suggestions re jumpy reflexes

Hello to any one out there. Does not seem to be much talk on this post. Thought I would put a question out there, as I have done in the past. Still no definite dx just Central Nervous System Disorder. See Neuro every 6 months or so and he sees some changes each time but not progressing very fast. Last MRI was Oct. 09 and was taken on a newer machine, even though I asked ...

a new Grandpa!!

Just wanted to share...our youngest daughter & son-in-law just made us the proud grand parents (first time) of a baby boy! He's a real cute little bugger too! We were waiting in the hall about 30 feet from the open door of the delivery room, the son in law was counting to 10, pausing, counting again..and all of a sudden a baby started crying bloody blue murder! How cool, we heard him being born.
The ...

needed to talk

A few off days and had another fall. Seems my right foot is dropping more and I was wearing flip flops. Guess I'll have to stop wearing. Bear feet are OK so will do. Can feel more when nothing on my feet. Nothing broken, just bruised pride and skinned knee. My husband was near by and got a scare, think worries about the small changes. Nothing big, just more fatigue, more sensitivity, guess more drop ...

too young to retire

I'm a 53 year old male. My GP says I have MS, My Neuro says POSSIBLE MS. I've had all kinds of tests, including 2 MRI's, 3 CT's, multiple blood tests, a VEP test (still waiting for report). I have a 2cm lesion on my brain which was thought to be a tumor (I had a brain biopsy which proved it's a lesion)
I'm wondering if it's my age that makes the Neuro reluctant to ...

EEG to check gray matter area

Hi to everyone. Have not posted for awhile but thought some of you may have responses to my questions. Had latest MRI in Oct. after none for 3 years. Had some 11 + lesions plus two more. Report said could be MS but not to rule out other things. Apparently not enough since the last one. Neuro would not say MS. Did say if 29 years old would dx MS but 60 so could still ...

One problem with the "golden years"...

One problem with the so-called golden years is that just as you are starting to need more help yourself, the family who might have been there to help when you were younger are now needing help themselves--and dying off.

So you find yourself becoming more and more isolated. You can't replace your family. You'll never have another, probably. When they're gone, they're gone.

All of my siblings were old enough to have been another generation. ...
