A brand new year

I sit in reflection upon the new year and the old one going out the door.
Considering this message board as a safe haven of understanding, for we share a most common and unwelcome burden upon our lives, each unique and individual as the person facing the screen.

My last twelve months have consisted of learning. Learning what works, what doesn't and what to try next. It's difficult not to become overwhelmed and frustrated. Through ...

wrist tendonitis?

Discuss. If you've had it, tell me about it. What helped, your general experience, etc etc?

Mine is probably due to computer overuse (I do a lot of writing and use computer for other day-to-day stuff as well), not helped by taking up archery, nor by the right-side weakness in general (neurological - but I think having weak muscles might strain the tendons more?).

Have googled a little bit and gotten some general tips (ice, ...

Campath trial

I got a phone call today from my neurologists office asking me if I'd be interested in this study. They are already approved as a trial site for the Campath/Rebif study. I go in on the 10th to see them and I've looked at info on the internet but is it really true that if you get Rebif while in the trial that it's covered cost wise? It's a question my husband asked me and ...

Can anyone tell me how they were initially diagnosed with ms, what were the symptoms?

I have been suffering with dizziness for about 2 weeks now. I thought it would be an ear infection but the doctor said it wasn't and did some blood tests which all came back normal. Would anything show up in blood tests?

I have no other symptoms other than dizzyness and a 'fuzzy head' The dizzyness is usually worse ...

Types of MS Pain..Please describe yours

I have the most HORRENDOUS time trying to explain the pain I feel with MS.

I have no idea why. I can explain a toothache, headache, backache, but cannot for the life of me explain the pain I feel with MS.

When I do I make no sense. I'm wondering what type of pain your MS causes you and how you best describe it.

Thank you to all :wink: ...

symptoms while recovering from HiCy?

My husband just finished HiCy, we will be 1 month out January 7th. He has had some of his old symptoms recently, namely heaviness in his leg and numbness in his arm. He also is vertigoish. Is this normal 'healing' or could this be reactivation? Anyone with similar experiences?

Strange reaction - from the Copax?

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. About a 1 1/2 weeks ago (Wednesday night) I did my Copaxone injection manually in my left hip. The site was sore, but by the next day, it was fine. Thursday and Friday I didn't feel anything there. But starting Saturday afternoon, my hip go very tender and I noticed some swelling in my left groin, which was tender also. I went to my primary care ...

Need Help

My wife is in the hospital in a small city with meningitis apparently contracted through her MS baclofen pump. The pump was surgically removed and she is being treated for bacterial meningitis, although they can't grow a culture. Their baclofen withdrawal plan seems very funny to me. She has had a small brain infarct and her kidneys are failing from the antibiotic. She is cycling through different awareness presentations every day.

Question: does anyone know ...
