Just a bad day*

So yesterday was a really bad day for me. Two of my major symptoms besides the pain are loss of appetite and severe fatigue. I get to work yesterday and the pain in my back and right leg are unbearable and on top of that I looked as if i was going to pass out at any minute from lack of sleep. Long story short… Read More

Help From Someone *

Hello Everyone! This is my first post. I am reaching out on here because I am hoping to find people that understand MS and what the heck is going on. I was diagnosed in September of 2017.

Staying active through biking.*

Hello All. DaveDguy here. No, I didn’t create the name; AOL created it for me eons ago when I started using email. A little background. I was diagnosed with RRMS in April 2013 at the age of 54.

   This current attack is not responding to steroids or neuropthy meds. I've been using a walker but can't go far or carry anything. I find out about a wheel chair, hopefully, next week. If I'm only approved for a heavy one it won't help. I don't know how to do things with a wheelchair but I can go further and… Read More

Missing life*

I would like to talk to adults (50s) that have suffered big (life) losses due to MS.  Quitting my job has been especially painful.  Walking is but a distant memory...  I'm beyond annoyed.  I am not trying to be rude, but I don't want to hear it's God's plan, everything happens for a reason, etc.  Let's just be… Read More

Isolated headaches....

So, I'm having these headaches, but not really the kind of headache I'm used to.  It isn't the typical throbbing sinus pressure headache, or even stress related type. I get these sharp pains that hit hard and fast, but really isolated in size.  Maybe the size of a quarter or a bit larger.  And hits hard enough… Read More

Handling the Pain*

I've had MS for 7 years now, and I've always had at least a tentative grasp on it; what my limits are, what can trigger some symptoms, and how to best handle them. My most common symptom is leg pain and spasms. I do not know if it is due to the MS directly or a side effect of the medication I am on (Gilenya). I… Read More

pain & depression worse*

I received my 1st 2 infusions of Ocrevus at the end of December. Now...1 month later, it feels like my pain is worse along with my depression. I spent last night thinking of how I could end all this pain. I won't do anything, but it's just too much for me to handle. My doc suggested Lyrica for the pain but at… Read More
