I am the son of a woman who has a very severe case of MS. She is practically immobile, has no balance, and struggles with almost every physical aspect of her day.

For years she has had a burning nerve pain in her right shoulder that comes ...

I'm here - in Baltimore!

Hello everyone,

Just a little update - I'm here in Baltimore! It's about 4:40pm local time... Got in EARLY this morning on the redeye from California. Too early to check into the hotel....ended up going to the Baltimore Aquarium. However, couldn't stay awake and fell asleep during one of the shows (one where you get wet and poked at!).

Tomorrow (Monday) ...

Hello everyone

Hello,
I am new here. I will spend hours reading the great posts! I did a search, however, and did not find a response. I am sure its here because it seems a common question.

How do I know what medication I should do? My Neuroligist said to go home and read up on them and pick one. Is this normal? How do I pick one?

I know basics, like how many times a day/week ...

Heat, MS and the disease process

It's widely acknowledged that heat makes MS symptoms more noticeable.

However I read an article which recounted a woman with MS dying whilst sunbathing. Also my first noticeable 'MS attack' occurred after using a very high powered sun bed in a poorly ventilated room with no cooling system.

Time for me to join in

Hello.

I guess it's time for me to join in. I received my "official" diagnosis today.

I've spent a little while perusing the site and it looks like there is a lot of good information and there are many helpful people here. I think I will learn a lot and if nothing else, not feel so alone.
