Symptoms of MS

Possible drop foot?*

i just want opinions on the matter since no doctor can tell me what it is without knowing the source of the weakness.

The rest of my foot and ankle became weak and I have been limping around ever since… Read More

Instead of screaming to the top of my lungs from the top of a mountain I feel like someone push me off and then ran me over with a bus or truck or some vehicle. My body aches so bad.

Try it you may like it. Remember the Kiss rule, keep it simple stupid. I am very lazy, I find the fastest easiest way… Read More
