Postpartum relapse?

Hello I am 5 weeks postpartum and having returning symptoms of old flares and some new ones. Right forearm went numb, bottom right jaw numb. Oh and hypersensitivity to sounds and extremely fatigued. It's been five days I'm wondering if it's going to keep coming on slow or if this is it. Anyone else have a relapse postpartum? If so what did you experience and what did you do to cope with it and having ...

Without me?

I honestly spend time trying to make sure my kids can do some things independently... but after a rough time, I feel they all act as if I'm indispensable! After a rough month, I take ONE DAY to start Gilenya (and from the kids' perspective, a whole 1 1/2 hours after school ends)... and I find all the chores, cranky kids, and nobody being fed. Seriously? I have dealt with this for a few years ...

To have another child or not? That is the question....

Ever had to wean a baby?

I've decided to do dmds, so I've had to go from his never having had a bottle to full time bottles and formula. The baby is 9 months and enthusiastically eating solids. He is "mildly tolerant" of breast milk in a bottle during the day and not at all at night. I have maybe a dozen bottles pumped and frozen, but I didn't want to ramp up my supply only to quit.

I know there ...

Hi all,
I am very happy to see a forum for parents who have MS. I am 22 years old, and I have a daughter, Jayna, who will be 2 in December. She is my main concern in all of this, I fear that her life may not be as full as it could have been had I not had MS. I had her in 2009 and I was diagnosed this past July. My neurologist ...
