Re: Cooling pillow?

I'm looking for something for sleep though... I have cold packs and tried them on my pillow and: - they are too cold at first and then the cold goes away TOO quickly - they move - they aren't that comfortable I'm a really sucky sleeper, so those things don't help. I recently found this online: http:...

SMIV: not working?

I got SMIV last week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for a bad relapse. It was 1g each day (I think). It was my first time getting this. Haven't noticed any change yet (it's been 3 days since the last dose)... Does it mean it didn't work, or just too early? :(

I definitely understand you on the libido (or lack of it)... I'm going through the same thing. :(

I'm currently on Rebif, but I'm keep my eyes open for the news and info on Gilenya. It's still not approved here in Canada, but it's been 'recommended'.

For me it's since I was diagnosed and started on Rebif, I think... so ever since then... :(

I take Rebif 3 times a week... have been since August 2008, shortly after my diagnosis.

You think that's what it is? :(

the numbness ... sensory? or do you mean more apathetic about sex? Thank you for your reply. I'll definitely try the Zinc (50mg/day) I meant the numbness as in 'more apathetic about sex', yes. But I do find that MS has reduced my ability to feel things on my skin, in a lot of areas... and I think i...

Feeling of 'numbness' (not physical)

I just posted another thread that's more specific to one thing... but I wanted your opinion on this too. It's hard to explain, but I find that in the past couple of years, it's almost like I'm a spectator to my own life.... I'll feel anger and sadness and depression, but the hapiness part, I feel it...

Lack of sex-drive

I hope my message won't get deleted or blocked, as it's nothing bad... I'm a 32 year old female with MS. I was diagnosed in 2008. I find that for the past 2 years, my sex-drive is almost non-existant... :( I used to have a pretty high sex-drive before I was diagnosed. My husband is very understandin...

How did you feel after giving birth?

I've been reading that something like 90% of women have a relapse the first year after giving birth... And also that women with MS are more at risk of postpartum depression.

Trying to decide...

Hi! I'm a 31 (almost 32) year-old woman. I was diagnosed with MS in 2008 (although our suspicions are that I've had it since 2003 or so). Anyways, my hubby and I got married in July 2009. I'm still trying to figure out if I should have a child or not... I feel like the clock's ticking and don't have...

I've been reading on the forum for a while and I can't seem to find how to contact Dr. Haacke's clinic to see if I can get tested in Hamilton (I'm in Ottawa) Canada?

Does anyone know how to contact them? I did searches on Google, but didn't find it...

Hi Shortcake, I have MS as well, although an extreme mild case of it. Benign as far as I am concerned. Are you getting treatment at the General? Mondays or Thursdays? I am a test subject for teriflunomide. Maybe we'll meet up someday. Danny (Ottawa) Hi Danny! I'm on the other side of the river, so ...

Thank you all for your posts and words of encouragement.

I'll be reading the nutrition section and I'm sure I'll be learning lots!
