Re: Gum tenderness/weirdness?

I doubt it is only my neurologist "brushing off" the dental problems. Wonder if they are getting some kind of gain for keeping patients on the Tecfidera and making it seem incident free. 5th week in on the Tecfidera and my teeth are bothering me even more, the migraines (oh ya the awful barfing ones...

If you aren't scared when you are told you have MS....

There is something even worse wrong than having MS. I was reading through the replies here, and just thinking to myself how we are all in "the same boat" and it's no cruise ship, but it is what we make of it. Learning about the disease is not fun, in fact its a royal pain in the bum! So much info, a...

Re: Gum tenderness/weirdness?

I am so glad (well not glad but relieved) to see these post. I had a appt with my neuro on Monday and when I told him about the gum problems he said he never heard of such. I don't like anyone having problems if any kind, but nice to know its not some random hypochondriasis that I am putting on myse...

Re: Hi, New here & wanted to introduce myself.

Hi Char I know the feeling of doctors tagging extra initials in the primary diagnosis. I started with ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenia pupura) then MS. Shortly after came RA that no one wanted to treat since the MS was apparently more important (says who??) now it seems the SLE tag has been added on...

Just stumbled on this site and wanted to introduce myself

Hi, I say stumbled although I am sitting but I do tend to stumble quite often so it seemed to fit :wink: I am a 40 something female with a MS diagnosis for the past 19 years, although they said I probably had MS since my early teens. I was forcibly retired from nursing about 13 yrs ago, and went bac...

Re: Antioxidant drug may treat multiple sclerosis

Thanks for that link. I have been taking antioxidants and incorporating more in my diet for the past few years. Although it isn't the one referred to in the article, I think they seem to help overall.

Re: Hip Turning Out?

I have had very similar occurrences, although not in my hip but in upper extremities. Most frequently my hands. I shock anyone around me when it happens because of the obvious distortion. I think it is a muscle spasm that is so severe it causes the muscle to pull at the joint to cause the distortion...
