Positive thoughts

August is a low time for MS news. I saw the following about seeing the positive side of things (sometimes difficult with MS!):

MS or Hughes Syndrome? Misdiagnosing.

Question about possible tremors

I'm a fairly new diagnosis and wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I'm not sure if it would be considered a tremor. Best way to describe it---sort of like a grand version of what most people consider a "chill". It tends to happen mostly when I am sitting and leaning my head or neck back.
