Fisher Wallace Stimulator - Have you used it?

I have just ordered it and am hoping this device will help me with my nerve pain. It is designed primarily to treat depression, anxiety, insomnia and apparently also helps with chronic pain also, and hopefully nerve pain). It comes with a 30 day trial period so I decided to try it and see if it helps. Just wondering if anyone here has used it and what your experience was.

Looking for some opinions and advice

Hi. I am a 40 year old father of two who has not yet been diagnosed. I have never used a forum before, however my wife thought it might be a good idea in order to get some feedback. I really want to be as open as I can about what's been happening to me as I feel that will get me the best advice. Two years ago I was diagnosed with a primary anxiety ...

Hi everyone nyd, could valium have been masking my symptoms

Hi all first time posting here. I recently stumbled across an ms wiki page while looking for reasons my back might of been spasming and tingling and feeling a weird sort of numbness. I was horrified as the more I read the more I realised I had so so so many of the symptoms associated with ms that I had just ignored and put down to other logical explanation. I promptly went to my gp ...

Simple strategy: Doxycycline for 2-3 weeks, then "pulsing"

I am new to this forum, but not new to the topic.
I suspected MS early in the 1990s, read everything I could find on MS causation = etiology, had the impression that it might be a severe form of late (tick) neuroborreliosis.

However, I have been "sero-negative" on repeated testing in 1991 and following years (twice negative in CFS), whatever this means. (From what I have read - a lot! - I have no ...

Loss of pain sensation

I've had ms for roughly 5 years. About 2 years ago I was taking apart a rusty old jeep and cut my hand pretty bad. I never felt any pain. I didn't even know it happened until my hand was covered in blood. It started with my hands and has since spread to most of my body. I don't feel any pain on my skin at all. I can still feel touch. And sometimes when ...

New - undiagnosed - scared...

Hi all,

I posted my basic story over, so I won't repeat it all. But in a nutshell, I've been having numbness in my arms and legs (and part of my torso). Some of this may be unrelated - for instance, I think the pain in my arms is more likely due to a radiculopathy than anything MS, in large part because it's mostly in discrete fingers that relate to specific nerves, but I ...

MRI suggests MS ... waiting on diagnosis ... scared.

Hi everyone,

I just got off the phone with my ortho and I have to tell you, I'm scared. I've known for about a week that MS could be one possible reason for my symptoms, but put it out of my mind -- no way I have that, right?

Sorry if this is disjointed... I'm just nervous. Let me back up.

In late July, I started feeling numbness in two of my fingers of my ...

As I sit in the opthamologist office waiting for my left eye to dilate so I can be checked out for ON, I write to introduce myself. I am a wife and mom of two and have been diagnosed for 2 years. My mom has MS as well... I came here looking for support. It's nice to have family support but hard not to be able to talk about how I feel and really not ...
