Re: Swollen ankles and feet

Do you have closed toed or open toed stockings? I have open as they don't hurt me. To me they are easier to get on?? You can buy something called a Sleeve or special gloves to put the stockings on. My husband and the caregivers that I've had just struggled at first but it got easier. We never used a...

Re: Swollen ankles and feet

Hi Robbie,

Sorry, only saw this now. I have my husband or caregiver put them on me early in the morning and my hubby pulls them off at night. I can't use my hands that well anymore.

Re: Swollen ankles and feet

Hi Robbie,

Try wearing your stockings from before 11am till evening every day. Also put your feet up for a bit too during the day. I wear
a 20 - 30 compression. Wear what you can find until you can get assessed. Yes, I dream that I am walking alot.

Take care.........

Re: Swollen ankles and feet

Hi Robbie, Have you tried compression stockings? Maybe I've missed it. Not perfect but they help quite a bit! I also use the foot machine that you used too...on my second one...and a recumbent bike. I think you and I are pretty much similar. My day consists of a shower, getting dressed, breakfast an...

Re: Neck/Back Pain

Hi,

I used to have this neck pain and tried a Nucca chiropractor. Treatment is painless. Don't think it was MS related tho. I had fallen a few years before and my core and neck had started to twist slightly.

Take care!

Re: Not enough sunlight?

Hi elaine747, I had lots of sun when I was younger. I know someone in Texas that has MS too. Friends from The Philippines say there is lots of vitamin D deficiency there. An acquaintance from Africa says who really knows if there is no MS there as they don't have as much technology there as we do. S...

Re: Desatascador An informal, totally unscientific 'test'

I have been using the desatascador since August 2. While I do not have big vision problems, I am feeling weaker and stiffer every day physically.

Any thoughts?

Re: Desatascador An informal, totally unscientific 'test'

Hi Elliot,

I don't feel that I've tried it long enough yet?? No improvements thus far but I'm in a w/c and you are not. I think we will all be different???

How long did it take you to notice a change Gristy?

Fingers crossed!

Re: Desatascador An informal, totally unscientific 'test'

I ordered mine a few days before you David and received it in about 3 1/2 weeks. Does it make a difference that we had it shipped to our company office instead of our home....who knows. My husband is an int'l freight forwarder and says it usually is slow from China unless you use a company like his....

Elliot,

Do you have to rest your head on the steel wool once it's under the pillow case or can it be just by the top of your head?

Thanks!

Re: Muscle Spasms & Nutrition - from magnesium to vitB3 to v

Hi David, While I don't have spasms much, here is what I do or use for other muscle pains at times. Every day I take 400mg of magnesium bisglycinate, rest my feet on a machine for about 30 - 45 minutes that sends vibrations thru my feet and up my lower legs and the odd time I use a magnesium gel for...

Re: Multiple Sclerosis Desatascador

Can we go to our local "cheap store" and buy one of their handheld fans instead of ordering from Amazon? Are they the same "mechanically"? Otherwise looks similar.

Thanks!

Re: Multiple Sclerosis Desatascador

So Gristy, what you are saying is if Elliott were to follow your posted instructions, he can do this as many times a day that he wants for as long as he wants? How long after that you started this did you see results? Any other little details we might need to know? Would the magnetite in our bodies ...

Re: Constipation

Hi shinyredsparkles - love the name! This is what works for me/my body: - cranberry juice and/or - bananas and/or - nuts - magnesium glycinate - every day Find what food works for you. Cheese was the ONLY thing that worked for a friend of my mother-in-law. Excercise and massage help too. Take care!
