Has anybody had any luck with major dietary changes when it comes to autoimmune… Read More

Exercise more harm then good? *

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with exercise causing any new damage?  So I've had a sore knee for several weeks, which I have attributed to my uneven gait due to muscle weakness in one leg.  But, since bad knees sort of run in my family, I'm a little concerned that continuing to take walks, exercise,… Read More

Absolutely done with the word LAZY! *

Hello to whomever reads this, So, I am tired (of course I'm tired, I have MS.) I am having "going on a long rant" feelings about the word "LAZY"... so I looked it up, and the only definition that I feel actually applies to any of us, is slow moving. ( Me for sure moves slow.) But other than that... I work… Read More

At wits end...*

 How do you cope with fatigue? Even though I have been diagnosed for 10 years I have never felt the fatigue this bad before.

Younger new physicians still enjoy the discovery investigation aspects of medicine. Older seasoned mds for the most part are in the rote trap, 'if it's a fever it must be virus'. Watching the md as you speak will give you an idea if the md is in habit mode or if the brain is working. Some physicans report… Read More

The kids were hanging out doing nothing when another kid showed up holding a paper bag that looked like it was filled to the brim. He asked one of the kids to put his hand in the bag, then another kid and another. All the kids declined. Fear is the very best excuse we have ever come up with, it is better… Read More
