Burning on base of foot

Hi guys

I just wanted to ask if anyone has found anything which helps with this. Mine seems to be getting worse.

My neuro said it's normal for ms patients, but apart from neuropathic pain killers (gabapentin etc), which have some terrible side effects, nothing else was offered.

Choosing a good neurologist?

I just had two MRIs - one that showed a barely perceptible lesion on my cervical spinal cord and another that showed small brain lesions that they say most likely point to MS. The MRI report says the lesions are inactive at this time. Forgive me, I am new to all of this, so I'm not sure if I'm saying this right. Anyway, I have been referred to a neurologist, but how do I know ...

Is it a feeling that you are going to fall off, like your balance isn´t right?

Is it a drunk walk?

Or is it just an odd feeling that you feel you are blocking?

It´s really strange whats happening to me because i have this feeling that something is wrong with my walking although i don´t walk drunk or need to grab things or use a cane to ...

Here if you need me by Kate Braestrup

True story by the young widow of a Maine police officer who takes up her deceased husband's dream and goes to seminary to become a chaplain. Not at all preachy or melancholy, but a wise, honest and often funny account of how one woman dealt with a huge transition in her life. I loved Braestrup's writing...her poetic descriptions of the Maine landscape, her insight into life and death, her humor.

highly recommended for those asking ...

Marcia and I, we're both doing the study here in Lexington, Ky, are officially scheduled for our procurement blood draw next Monday, May 5!

Concrete sandwich and concussion

Two Fridays ago I fell down an flight of 3 stairs and did a face plant onto the concrete below. I fractured my skull, was knocked unconcious and suffered a stage 3 concussion. Wow, I spent 2 days in ICU and another in the hospital. I had CSF fluid coming out of my ears in the ER.

I am starting to recover, but the headache and balance are still bad. I believe my fall was ...
