    I suffer every day with very severe pain and Multiple Sclerosis. I also have at least 3 other autoimmune diseases. I believe wholeheartedly that God hears my daily prayers. I am blessed and I will continue to fight hard every day until I am healed.
  • How to cope with a mom who has MS and learn to love and respect her more than ever

    My mom was diagnosed with MS before adopting me even though that was 24 years ago it's sad to say but through out all these years that we constantly bang heads. I never knew why until it donged on me that I never stopped to look at things in her perspective or "walk" in her shoes. Is there anyone out there who was in my situation or scenario?

    Trying to decide what treatment to start

    I am 67 and was diagnosed with m.s. in 1995. I have been on Betaseron, Copaxone and now Tysabri. My main problem is incontinence, but I have been having Botox injections along with cathing and my life has drastically improved. I would like to try Ocrevus for the convenience of taking it every six months but also in hopes it could improve my other symptoms. Is there anyone who is close to my age that can answer my question? M. M.

    Going back on Betaseron

    My wife of 45 years has had MS for 35 of those years. For 17 years she was on an every-other-day injection program. This she stopped 7 years ago due to site infections and calcium or hard buildups. Her new nerologist has told her that she may benefit from returning to the program. Is there anyone who has done this return? If so, can some indicate any changes to methods and doses? Thank you

    MS Drugs--Which One?

    Hi. I was diagnosed a couple years ago after 2 bouts with Optic Neuritis. Fast forward to now, I have some additional symptoms, (balance and dizziness mostly) and an MRI-confirmed lesion in the corresponding area. So, the doc and I agree its time to go on meds. I am interested in hearing opinions on which one to choose--The good, the bad, the ugly, based on experiences. Looking at Tecfidera (the twice a day oral one) and Avonex (once per week injection). There are others of course, but these are....

    Feeling Sick

    A couple years ago I was sent to the hospital for what they believe, but haven't told me yet, MS. I have been having problems recently all over my body and am not sure what is causing it and no one will help me. They are taking a very long time to help me with anything. I began having problems back in April with my bladder. It hurt so bad, but it was that I didn't have a bladder infection, they told me. I am taking medication for my headaches and it helps with my bladder, but it hasn't....

    Vitamins for MS patients

    Which type of vitamin B is needed? My vitamin D is on the lower level? I used to take 1000 IUV but it was not enough so I was told to up my dose to 2000 IUV and take along with vitamin C (eat kiwi, orange etc.,) because the body absorbs it better? IS THAT RIGHT? If not, when does one take it, an hour before eating??? What about Magnesium? I used to take Mag2, two ampules a day, one in the morning and one at night. If not, is one banana a day cover the dosage needed? What else is needed?

    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?
