to tell or not to tell

I found myself even mentioning it to the electrician I had at my house today. I held it on the tip of my tongue for a moment and then just added it into the conversation. I think to break down the barriers or to get MS known out there is we have to tell people. More awareness the better. Does it rea...

I agree

I devloped Glandular Fever (EBV) at 16 and was diagnosed with MS at 25, I was pretty sick with it in hospital 10 days with complications i.e enlarged liver and chest infection. My blood count was really low and I have alw...

Its time to take control !! Yes having someone drive me round in the car just about made me feel like I was goin...

Hi there, Yes Vertigo is the worst thing in the world and I have only had it once so far with MS let along your long haul. Hey for me I ended up getting a course of steriods straight away and that worked for me. But hang on, I went to the MS society and had a few visits with the physio lady there an...

Yes I have tried both. I am taking Q10 at present to help counteract the fatigue I get from taking Lipitor which apparently depleats a particular enzyeme in the body. Q10 allows your body to absorb energy from your food effectively and also a good antioxident which Grape Seed extract is also.
