Why do people who don't have MS always act like they are your neurologist ?

Why do the people around you act as though they are your neurologist ? They have more pros and cons about this disease then you are aware of, they drive me crazy.

Anyone using meditation and visualization daily?

the mind is a powerful thing. I took a meditation class a few years ago and am just getting to try to make that my daily practice - along with visualization. I've only been at it for a week, but I feel pretty good. Anyone else trying this?

When you feel really good - what do you attribute it to?

It's winter here in Australia. Last winter I was exhausted all the time and all the balance, tingling etc issues were really obvious - so bad that we ended up buying a new house (at much cost) so that when I went down the steps in the house my leg wasn't going from under me and to avoid trips etc.
This winter - I feel fabulous. No balance issues, no legs going from under me, reduced pins and needles (although sometimes dream I am covered in spiders and wake… read more

Leg keeps falling asleep

I'm not sure if this is MS or not. My right leg keeps falling asleep every time I sit somewhere for ?10? minutes or so. It wakes up in a few minutes if I'm standing. My MS feels like it is active. (My left leg falls asleep a little to, my left leg is dragging a bit. It falls asleep no matter what I sit on.) Has anyone ever had this? Should I be frantically contacting my neurologist? It has been going on for 2 weeks now and now my leg is dragging a bit. I'm worried.

Temporary Drug

Well been off all meds since 4/7 hoping to start Ocrevus. Can't start until 10/1. Been battling all this time trying to get on it. So I need something in the intern. I don't think anything will be built up to full potential until 3/6 months. Doctor mentioned Gileyna or Zinbryta in April. Insurance won't cover Zinbryta. Aubgio x 3 months and stopped do to diarrhea. Rebif 18 years prior. Royal pain switching. Any thoughts.....

New Hire with MS

I'm a single mom whose MS has caused me to move in with family to a new unfamiliar city. I have been applying for jobs and have a couple interviews scheduled but I'm apprehensive about advising my potential employer that I have MS. It's been 7 months since my last relapse and I'm currently managing my symptoms pretty well, but as you know some days MS has the last say. Should I wait until I'm officially hired to disclose my condition? Can I be let go during my time of employment if I relapse and… read more
