Have you ever experienced ankle clonus during a neuro exam

This was a weird one. You know how the ms neuro uses the tuning fork. I had this weird left ankle clonus the other day when he did the exam. He didn't use the tuning fork to test the ankle clonus just his hand. This is how they can tell you have lesions somewhere on your spinal cord or brain stem.

Here's what it is... It was a strange feeling.

I didn't have spasticity at all though which was good. I just don't… read more

Eye issues

For those who have had vision issues...this AM after putting in my contacts, I went into another room that was semi dark and out of one eye, everything looked a lot darker than the other eye. It eventually went away after a couple minutes and didnt happen again. Im wondering if it was from coming out of a brighter room to a dark room, or if its a pre curser to an issue. I don't feel too worried, but curious if vision issues are similar with others?

Does anyone belong to "The MS Gym" run by Trevor Wiken from Colorado?

I belong to it right now, but not sure if I will continue. Have only belonged less than a month. I'd like to know if anyone belongs and feels it's worth the $30/month charge. I'm not much on routine exercise, but this program has many people who love it and swear it help. I'm sure it's a good program, not sure it's for me tho! Not sure if I will continue at this time.

If it's 2 or 3 oclock in the morning do you still take your shot?

Let's say you are working on a paper and you lose track of time and it's 2 or 3oclock in the morning... do you still take your shot or do you skip a night? Is it better to miss a night or mess up your schedule by taking it at 2oclock in the morning?

Pointless Neurologist Appointments?

So, I’ve only been diagnosed since December 2017. My case has been described as “mild” and only my first MRI had any enhancing lessions. I’m on Aubagio, which (other than some hair loss) I’ve had no problems with.
However, I’ve had quite a few MS and non-MS issues: headaches, limb weakness, fatigue, and nerve pain. Everytime I see my neurologist, they either dismiss my symptoms as “not MS” or give me medicine with horrible side effects that help my symptoms, but I cant stand… read more
