joint pain and MS

i recently developed joint pain (ankles, wrists, fingers, toes). it is affecting my mobility and functioning. my doctor said that joint pain goes along with MS, but i have never read anything about it being a common symptom of MS. i'm curious if anyone else has experienced this? i was told it is nerve pain caused by the ms. i'm taking anti-inflamatories which are not helping at all, and recently began taking meds for nerve ...

Just a Hello from another senior

I already posted in the Introductions thread, and now here I am again, introducing myself in the Golden Years thread.

I'm 66, a woman who's had MS since about 1978 or maybe longer (diagnosed in 1980). I've taken part in a couple of MS message boards since 2001.

I've lived in the same HUD-subsidized apartment in WA state since 1983, though I'm from Chicago originally.

I use a wheelchair most of the time. I don't ...

nasty rebif side effect

I've recently been put on rebif 44 and to my dismay it is causing me some distressing sexual dysfunction side effects. I was on Rebif 22 before and was OK on that and i was just wondering if any other guy on rebif44 has experienced these unacceptable side effects and why is it not mentioned on the list of side effects on the medicine information leaflet?? I'm now totally unable to achieve or maintain the ...

In Morocco

Hi,
I came here to teach English, which is working out alright.. A couple months ago, I became constantly dizzy, and I have since developed a few other symptoms. I am pretty depressed, tired all the time, sometimes can't speak, etc etc.. Seems sort of like whining to list these all but I suppose it's a good thing to do. Talk soon then.

Yours,
Matt

Hi!

Hi to everybody here!

I've read a few threads on this board now and then over the years but never got around to joining.

I already belong to several MS message boards, and I've been on them for 5 or 6 years.

This place looks nice, and I hope to take part in some discussions here.

I was diagnosed with SPMS many years ago. I was on Avonex for 3 years but had to stop ...

power plate

Has anyone ever tried the Power Plate? No, it doesn't involve food, and yes, Madonna uses it too; bit beyond that, a dr recently told me that he recommends it to a lot of pts, esp. people with MS-- it' supposed to get to all sorts of muscles that are normally difficult to target, improve flexibility, help circulation etc. The home version is ridiculously expensive; the commercial version is available in some gyms (none near ...
