Employee Health Screening

Hello all,

I have a quick question for anyone that can help.

I am starting a new job in a few weeks and have to undergo a pre-employment physical with the organization's "employee health" department.

The last time I underwent a pre-employment health screening, I was forthright about my diagnosis with MS and subsequently was given some trouble over concerns that I wouldn't be able to perform the duties of my job. I was forced ...

[b]Hi Everyone - Optic Neuritis and MRI with three "Spo

Hi guys,

I'm a Brit guy who has just come through Optic Neuritis ( diagnosis and then follow up MRI.) Like a lot of folks I'm now confused - not scared but feeling a weird feeling of "so this is what it feels like to be getting life-changing medical information."

First injection of Copaxone

Completed! Didn't use the autoinjector... just did the needle with the nurse here, all by myself! :) Didn't hurt at all (tummy injection). After, the medicine burned a little, but overall it wasn't bad. I didn't even ice/heat before or after, and if the injections are like this each time, I don't think I'd need to bother with that.

:D ...

Hey Guys,

I've been participating mainly over in the forums for HiCy and Tovaxin, but I stopped by here out of curiosity and did a little reading. Question: if a treatment such as HiCy (in which patients are blasted with high-dose chemo, their immune systems completely destroyed and then "rebuilt" afterwards as "naïve" immune systems ) appears to work with MS ...

Hearing Test

I went and had my hearing tested last week, because for the past year or so I've been having a hard time hearing people, especially at meetings or when I'm outside or on a cell phone. And my husband tells me I always have the TV up too loud.

My mother and grandmother had early onset hearing loss so I figured I should check it out.

My hearing test came back within the normal range. ...

Sweet Poison (aspartame and MS)

I got this from my dad's wife (not my mother). Just another thing to worry about, I figure. I'm not giving up my diet ginger ale!


In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much ...
