Re: Just starting to put together vitamins and supplements h

I went through much of the vitamin and supplement issues this year. And I am not done yet. The only thing I do know is, if you are adding 3 different things, give your body time to acclimate before you try another. This way, you will know with each addition to your regimen, your bodies reaction. If ...

Re: Advice or input needed. Cant feel penis.

@Dictatordan, I have no advice but I know how difficult it is to describe the wild and random symptoms that happen with m.s. Makes a person feel very alone! Sometimes it is just good to vent to someone that understands how random this disease can be.

Re: My mum was diagnosed with MS today... advice please?

I was diagnosed at 23 and am now 52. I was worried about my future. Should I marry? Have children? Take the promotion? Buy a house? If I had worried about what the future would hold and been paralyzed with fear, I would not have moved on to live my life by raising my daughter to 23, or by having a s...

I was up to 1000 mg when I went to the emergency room and they said my levels were sky high. I realized there was a problem when I found out my pharmacist could not stock it anymore. My do...

Re: 30 year Anniversary with ms

Ok "scott1" I feel that you are spying on me! I am just teasing. You know me too well. I am in physical therapy twice per week. I live in an urbanized farming community that has very little to offer re physical enrichment such as any kind of Pilates. We have a ymca that is probably 50 years old. And...

Re: Why did you choose Avonex?

This is an old thread but it takes me back to my choice of Avonex. When it came out, there were only three! Yes, 3! I liked Avonex because it was only once per week. With the others a person was required to inject 2or 3 times per week. To me that was a no-brainer. At the time it came out, it include...

Then it was after 2 pm 3pm and now it has settled on 8pm. I am sure a part has to do with my husband who works nights. But I am that way on...

Re: 30 year Anniversary with ms

Ok @scott1, here goes Legs are very weak. If I stand for longer than 5 minutes they give out. I then fall or I sit quickly. This is usually until about 8pm. After that they get stronger and I walk around a bit. I retire about midnight, when I wake up, I am back to square 1. Like Cinderella Frequentl...

Re: 30 year Anniversary with ms

I understood the gist of what you are saying and your literary skills are just fine.

A wish list?
I want my legs to get transmissions from my brain, so I may walk the way I used to walk.
