Morning Stretching Pulling Muscles?

Morning Stretching Pulling Muscles?

I dk if this is even a thing others have experienced or if its just me and nothing to do with MS. This is the 2nd time this year i have done a normal morning stretch when waking up and pulled a muscle in my neck and upper back. And i mean really pulled it. Is there a problem with the reverse stretch reflex possibly? I know i need to stretch more but when that reflex kicks in and my muscles shake i tend to strain one! Sometimes i cant stretch out enough on the floor and i cant… read more

Have You Found The Right DMT For You?

Have You Found The Right DMT For You?

Have you found your right DMT?

Here is a photo of me during my last Rituxan infusion. My husband is also living with MS, and he is thinking of changing his disease modifying therapy. It’s kind of scary, right?

How have you decided on what you’re taking? And are you happy with the course of your disease/treatment?

Asymptomatic New Diagnosis

Asymptomatic New Diagnosis

Hello,

I had an MRI for a completely separate reason and they found lesions. Did the lumbar puncture and now have a new diagnosis of MS. Was wondering if anyone else found out this way? Did they start you on Capoxone regardless if being asymptomatic? Any other herbs/supplements you take? Thank you!

Anyone Have Temperature Sensitivity To Cold Temps And Have Tips For Dealing With That??

Heat sensitivity gets a lot of attention, but I notice its harder to walk and get more spasms and tightness when i feel cold. For example, walking from my car in the parking lot to inside a building. Looking for tips and tricks to dealing with cold temps/weather.

Diet Changes??? Thoughts?

Diet Changes??? Thoughts?

I’m 31, was diagnosed with MS 4 years ago, but I’ve learned to basically live with it with no medications. Now as of last week I’m experiencing just awful symptoms. I’m so dizzy i can hardly stand. Has anyone had success with diet changes? I’m reading two books right now (well, my husband is for me I’m too dizzy) and they talk about MS being absolutely healed due to killing all the yeast in their bodies. Any thoughts??? Has anyone had good experiences with this???
