Mom recently diagnosed

Hi everyone,

My mom was recently diagnosed with progressive MS, and she has been declining very quickly since the diagnosis. As her daughter, I am unsure of what to do and how to handle the news. I want to be there for her as much as possible, and I try to talk to her but she doesn't want to talk to me about it. She is embarrassed to go out in public, and has stopped ...

Feeling very frustrated and sad

I just got back from seeing a second neurologist (this time an MS specialist) and although she was very nice and thorough I'm upset that I don't have an answer for everything that's going on. The last neurologist that I saw tried to tell me that my symptoms (including foot drop and vision colour loss) were due to fibromyalgia but my rheumatologist disagreed and said that I needed to see a different neurologist. I've had ...

Walkaide for sale


Walkaide is available for sale.
I am a second owner of this device; my family purchased it in a hope that it will assist the mobility of my elderly father who suffered with a stroke.
Unfortunately, this device will not help him. My family cannot justify keeping this, so I am selling this.

However, I bought this from the original owner who claimed it as a near mint/new condition. I will include other accessories ...

Could this be MS?

I'm 16 I never thought about MS up until about 2 weeks ago and since then I have started to feel the symptoms. I am constantly fatigued and had a twitch under my right eye for 5/6 days. For the past 5 days my left arm has felt heavy but not in pain, as has my left leg. I must also mention that the day before these symptoms came about I was out shopping all ...

Help in the morning to get ready for work?

My fiancée teaches at a community college. We do not live together yet, I live in a different town. She's been having difficulty getting out of bed, getting ready for work, and getting into her car. I was wondering if you know of a way for her to obtain assistance for those tasks. She does OK with the rest of her day. Thanks, John.

Could MS be caused by a retrovirus?

Could drugs shown to successfully treat HIV also be used to quell MS? To find out, researchers explore remnants of ancient viruses locked with the human genome.

Two new studies are under way to test antiretroviral medications on multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. This research is spurred by a narrowly accepted theory that MS may be triggered by human endogenous retroviruses...... Read More -

Hello, good people of TiMS,once again I am on the "general discussion" part of this forum, asking about myself. :S
If I am posting in the wrong place, please direct me to the right one.

I need your opinion on my situation. I am fully aware that you probably aren't doctors so please don't hesitate to give me your advice out of fear that you could say something wrong and I would immediately take you ...
