Hi, In the past year I have started to lose my balance. I have always had balance issues but this is different. Just standing still is a risk. My iron is non existent even taking iron pills. My b12 is on the low end of normal even with taking 5000 mgs a day. I have every single symptom of MS and that scares the crap out of me. I don't know if this is a place for me but it's worth a shot.
Cannabis (marijuana, weed)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
I'm really interested in trying cannabis to help with medical conditions. Does anyone have experience with it or where to even start?
I’m supposed to start treatment for Multiple Sclerosis in 2 weeks, my doctor is recommending Tysapbri but i’m concerned about the risk of PML. anyone have any medication recommendations/experiences?
I’m struggling with weight gain from my MS. I used to be active multiple times a week with MMA but I had to cut back and eventually cut out once the MS diagnosis was confirmed. Symptoms were making training difficult. Now I try to do cardio yoga and I’m doing my best to follow AIP, but I’m still stuck at 175 when before I was much smaller and I can’t go back to my MMA routine. I can’t go like that anymore. Anyone have tips on losing weight with MS? If it helps I’m on Dimethyl Fumarate, Lamictal(Lamotrigine), Prozac (Fluoxetine), Prazosin, and Trazodone.
I have MS fatigue that is completely exhausting. I literally spend every day in bed watching TV. I have no quality of life. I want to be able to take a shower. Do my laundry. Make my bed. What meds do you take for your fatigue?
I'm about to switch from Tecfidera to Ocrevus 🙌🏼 hopeful that it will get my aggressive MS under control because unfortunately Tecfidera isn't doin it for me. Does anyone have experience with Ocrevus? How were the infusions?
I know it has been a while since I posted. I was doing research last night and found out that with MS you are going to have dental issues. nobody told me this. I thought I would share this with everyone else just in case no one else knew.
Nice to meet you, I am new here and would like to say hello! I was diagnosed with MS last month. My flare ups consists of body numbness that slowly progresses until it decides to stop. I am still trying to learn the triggers for my flare ups. I worry about my future because I am going to school to become a dental assistant and hopefully a future dental hygienist. I worry that my hands are going to fail me more down the road since I’m only 19 right now. Very scary stuff
I feel my disease progress and I’m needing more help then normal. Which is very hard for me. I also work full time and know that it’s coming to where I’m not going to be able to work. So what’s next?
I just got the letter that no one likes to get. I got denied from the social security disability people. I kind of expected that because I can still see sort of and I can still walk with assistance. I have also been told numerous times that the first time I apply I will be denied. I thought about reapplying, but now I'm just like maybe I should get a job. I mainly suffer from really bad cognitive issues. I used to be a teacher, but I just think it would be a huge disservice to the kids if I tried to be a teacher again. Maybe I can just stock shelves or do something where I don't have to think too much. Has anyone been in my position? What did you do?
Hello, my name is Tamara! I am 32 and I have had MS 12 1/2 years. I am currently in physical therapy and trying to get the left leg stronger. I have had to use a cane to get around since 2017, due to my footdrop.
I've been in a wheelchair for 6 years, is it possible for me to ever get out of my chair and maybe walk with assistance again?
I have just recently been diagnosed with MS, I start physical therapy in a couple days and the ocrevus treatment next week. Can physical therapy help numbness? And what exactly is a MS flair up? My neurologist did not really tell me anything. I have 2 small children and can barely get around my house anymore, and can't go up stairs..
Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with MS last year at the age of 21 and it has been very hard to adjust to but i’m getting better with adapting every day. Any advice with how to not get frustrated with the symptoms? I often get discouraged and question why me.
What were the symptoms that lead you to think you had MS?
