MS, cancer, goats

After such a long time that we even have changed emails, and forgetting that my password was capitalized so I couldn't get in to write about all my (many) adventures, with my extended efforts, I finally arrived here with a splash and a plop. Now what?


A short history for newcomers and for those who have forgotten I existed: I began my story on the "Regimens"section of this excellent forum, but like some others, am ...

30 day supply limit

Hello: I have been on Rebif for a year and a half with very few side effects and no new lesions.

When I asked why the limit on Ribif when the plan says you can get 90 day supplies if ...

Burning on base of foot

Hi guys

I just wanted to ask if anyone has found anything which helps with this. Mine seems to be getting worse.

My neuro said it's normal for ms patients, but apart from neuropathic pain killers (gabapentin etc), which have some terrible side effects, nothing else was offered.


Thanks

J.

Choosing a good neurologist?

The MRI report says the lesions are inactive at this time. Forgive me, I am new to all of this, so I'm not sure if I'm saying this right. Anyway, I have been referred to a neurologist, but how do I know ...

What is unsteadiness when walking?

How do you describe unsteadiness when walking?

Is it a feeling that you are going to fall off, like your balance isn´t right?

Is it a drunk walk?

Or is it just an odd feeling that you feel you are blocking?

It´s really strange whats happening to me because i have this feeling that something is wrong with my walking although i don´t walk drunk or need to grab things or use a cane to ...
