Anecdote's continuing itinerary through light and shadow

I have decided, since I have finished my regime but am still getting improvements to move to the Antibiotics forum, so here I am, with a link to where I started back in August 2003.

Well, its now March 2008 and I have not had an MS episode since that time, whereas prior to that, with rapidly advancing secondary progressive disease I was deteriorating by the day with the odd relapse still thrown in. ...

Bladder Spasms, please help

I have trouble urinating... certain things relieve the spasms that prevent me from urinating, but I haven't found a really solid way of treating this.

Is there ANYTHING out there that could possibly help me urinate better? Some sort of natural remedy?

Glucosamine helped me somewhat with urinating, but didn't relieve it as much as I expected in the end.

Anyway, please help!

MS and the need for a peaceful heart

I have found it is important in my life for not only my body to be taken care of- but my heart also. A peaceful heart has become an inportant part of my day. Prayer and "Be Still and Know" is more important each day. Without that base, the fluctuations in the symptoms would drive me crazy!

What no one wants to talk about

....including me. I'm having issues with bowel incontinence. Pretty embarrasing as you can imagine. Has anyone else ever experienced this and found a way to control it? Do I need to go see a specialist? Thanks. :oops:
