      @Hortense Absolutely! Very gentle. I have to be very gentle with my neck in order to keep from having a vertigo or anxiety attack. Tai Chi is perfect for it. Think of it like a moving meditation. It is a Chinese Martial Art that uses very slow movements. It derives from Qi Gong, which is much simpler too. You can even do it seated, which I tend to do! There are miracle stories behind it

      @kirky - what exactly is tai chi? Is it gentle? I do have SOME mobility issues... I should look into it anyway.

      @Wilconquer - hi there !🤗 I know what you mean . I feel like MS stole so much from me. But I had been having symptoms for 10+ years that my drs we're just blaming on my lupus and other diseases I have. The initial MS diagnosis left me reeling - but after a while I was able to find the relief in knowing.

      Hello ALL. I'm new here. Have had this monster 👹 for 2yrs. I'm 51yrs young. And have never had anything. Used to play baseball. MS took that also.

        @Wilconquer I'm sorry to hear that. MS seems to be a monster. One of my friend's mom also has had it for about 5-6 years now. She has been incredibly strong through it all. Have you tried tai chi? I have been doing it for several months now and it has seemed to help me.

      No. MS is the demyelination of the nerve coatings and the sheath around the brain. Those lesions/damage then cause pain, and other problems. I have MS, and also herniated discs in my neck. They go hand in hand sometimes for reasons unknown to me. If a neurologist hasn't thought to evaluate you for it then they are the professional, right? What do I know.... ( Being serious, not sarcastic)

      Kirky - have you been evaluated for MS at all?

        @Hortense I've seen multiple neurologists, but none had mentioned MS and so I haven't been evaluated, no. Can MS be caused by a neck injury?

      Hey there, sorry to hear that...I'm having some sort of neurological issues as well. Not sure if it's trig neuralgia, but the doctor has said maybe some sort of occipital neuralgia. The biggest two symptoms are balance issues/dizziness and panic attacks. Whereas, I don't have your exact symptoms/issues, I know how difficult it can be.

      I'm so sorry you're having a hard time! You're doing so well though and we're all proud of you, it's so difficult when everything acts up at once but just know life has ups and downs and you'll get to an up soon enough!
