Intro, new here

Hello! I am seeking information on MS. My mom has been through lots of testing to rule out other problems, but the Dr. will not say MS for sure. He won't do anymore testing but confirms it is a chronic illness, most likely MS. My mom is not on any treatment program, but is taking meds to help her sleep and one for muscle spasms. I think she feels lost and not sure what is ...

For smokers only...

We all know how policically incorrect it is to smoke (or admit it anyway!) but I am a smoker and have been trying to quit for about 3 years. (and I am NOT politically correct!) So has my daughter who has MS. Several months ago I came across a video on Fox news about the "e-cigarette". I have been using them ever since!

There are several places you can purchase this product. Just search the ...

hereditary or not what percentage?

Hi I have been reading up on MS and am confused at what the percentage rate is for people who have family history compared to who doesn't.
I have been told by a friend it is unlikely for me to have because no family of mine has any autoimmune disease.

Would love some feedback please?

On a personal note- lost my Dad

My dad (77) passed away yesterday. He went peacefully, unmedicated, and seemingly pain free. He had fought with great strength and determination a 9 year battle with cancer.
The battle became quite hard during the last month.
I will miss him.
For the MS twist on this... if stress is a factor, I am in for it.
I loved my Daddy.

Halls Vitamin C Drops – Why an MS warning?

A couple years ago I noticed that Halls Vitamin C drops have a warning on the package that the drops shouldn’t be taken by people with MS. I used to keep them on hand to take if I was tired or felt a cold/sore throat coming on. Plus, it seemed like an easy way to get Vitamin C. Then one day I happened to read the warning label, and I haven’t taken them since. This ...

Seeing an opthamolagist, any hints?

From another thread.
EyeDoc wrote:As an aside: The OCT is a wonderful tool for measuring the thickness of the retinal nerve fibre layer. This is the layer that carries light signals into the optic nerve which allows us to see. OCT is currently covered by insurances and used for diagnosing and following glaucoma patients. There are other disease that can affect this layer, including MS, but medical insurance coverage is not complete. Irregardless, I do baseline OCT ...
