My ON eye is twitching

I've had my eyes twitch before, I think we all have, but it worries me that it's in my eye that was affected by optical neuritis. It sort of blurs a tiny bit more when it twitches as well but there is no pain, should I call my neurologist?

Stress factor?

Many people mention stress as a big factor in how their MS affects them. I trade emails with a woman who had her worst flare up when she was away on a business trip and she has tried to stay stress free since then, which has helped. I was just wondering how you try to stay un-stressed(for lack of a better word)? I'm a third year college student and things are really starting to ramp ...

Astrazeneca sucks

It's never good to see a company abandoning the development of new MS treatments. Astrazeneca doesn't have anything in advanced clinical trials at least. I take their announcement to mean they won't be trying to find new things, but the drugs they're already testing will continue. Time will tell.

Not regular nose bleeds, but ones that flow at a high rate and for a long time (3 to 5 minutes). 2 weeks ago while eating supper I had to go and take care of this inconvenience, and today while a client was ...
