    Interactions between Remicade and Cannabis

She is currently on a regimen of Remicade infusions, as well as taking Micophenilate. I am very interested in having her try a CBD dominant Cannabis tincture, as I have read that doctors are finding success using CBD to treat inflammation and nerve damage, which she has.

    I wet the bed

    Last night I was woken by me urinating on myself. I was in complete shock. I have never had bladder problems before and have NEVER wet the bed as an adult. Should I be concerned? I don't know if I should call my neurologist or wait to see if it happens again. I know that I do not have a bladder infection. I've had tons of bladder infections in my life time and can tell I am getting one before it even registers on the quick test at the doctors. Is bed wetting common with MS?

Within two days, both hands and the left foot felt the same. Now the soles of my feet are really sensitive. When I make a fist, it feels as if my flesh is being pulled back away from my fingertips. Further, I feel as if there is a tight band around my lower chest area. Is this more likely to be an MS relapse, or an....
  • Is this possibly not MS-related?

    I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in 2015. Then, I was diagnosed with RRMS the same year. I was told that I no longer have CTS anymore, and my orthopedic specialist thinks it's MS causing the issue. However, my neurologist isn't sure that It's MS-related. I have been on Tecfidera since June 2016. I received a steroid shot in my hand, and it only made it worse. Many medications have not helped either. This is what my hand feels like: As if I sat on my hand. Extreme numbness that....
