My husband and I have been fighting terribly, and he takes his resentments and anger for having to do a little extra out on me. I think he needs to go vent somewhere else. He does have mild-moderate RA, and I think he is saying he feels worse than he really is. Every time I tell him about a new symptom or something happening, a few days later, he suddenly has the same symptom. I know the divorce rate… read more
I've been getting this strange feeling across my upper chest from about my sternum and it feels tight almost as though I can't get a full breath. However it almost burns like I've got a chest infection. It goes across my back and feels almost as though I have pulled massive muscles in my mid back but goes away after a day. I could say it feels almost like severe heartburn but more restricting on movement. Could this be MS hug? I'm very healthy otherwise and am in my early 20's so not likely… read more
My calves are so tight so I'm thinking hot epsom salt bath may help them to relax BUT I'm worried it will make the tingling electricity-like feelings in my lower legs and feet worse... Does anyone have any insight on this?
I am feeling so weak by the afternoon. I feel like I need to lay down always. I'm trying to get enough sleep and walking 30 min a day. Its just seems to be getting worse.
I’m loosing sleep , I can’t stop thinking about a Go Fund Me page I created. I always think way ahead into the future and asked for a large donation. I’m now realizing I should be trying to take care of the here & now. I want to dramatically lower my asking donations. I’m worried about what donors will think. I don’t know what to do & I’m feeling very shallow.
Hi Team, we know how important is it to keep moving. So, @Beechgirl and I came up with a fun way to begin to be more active. MS won't stop us! Each week we will have a fitness challenge. This is how it will look (fitness challenge week 1 day 1 - week of March 25) (fitness challenge week 1 day 2) (fitness challenge week 1 day 3) Here is an example that @Beechgirl has shared what she did today: This morning as I wrestled to put on my gotchies, I hopped on my left foot continuously for 15,… read more
So i'm on day 5 of this 30 day arbon challenge and i don't want to jump the gun here, BUT, my knee joint pain i usually have when walking is not there right now! I noticed it yesterday. I also see a significant change in my fatigue issue, don't feel as sluggish.....i don't know, stil early but kinda exciting!.... NOW ONWARD!
The strange thing here is when i correctly spell the name of this challenge, it won't allow me to post. Simply a eat healthy program? Kinda makes me think of the "Living… read more
Ugh!.... i'm a positive person and i struggle with depression. Before i reached out to my primary 2 years ago, i went to a very dark scary place. I found myself 1st. visualizing and then 2nd. Planning my demise. Very grateful for my faith, first of all, and that i reached out for help.... living in Montana, the winters are cold and very long. Gets dark by 5 ect.....I've noticed my state of mind starting to slip back to where i don't want to be, making excuses to not participate in ANYTHING, only… read more
I wondered if some of the lesions are in fact trauma as well as MS, most of mine developed in the last 5-6 years of having an awful lot of stress over a couple of year period. I have lesions in the prefrontal cortex & find I'm down about not staying focused long enough or concentrate or on task, from one thing to another. My intentions are always good, heart in the right place, just so forgetful. If I learn to use something (new tool), I find the next day I can't… read more
I finally started a DMD and just gave myself my second injection of generic Copaxone.
The first injection was pretty painful for 15 minutes, followed by intermittent burning for an hour.
This second injection was something else. Immediate sharp, burning and squeezing pain at the site before I even removed the needle.
For those of you who have experience with Copaxone or its generic counterpart, is this something I’m just gonna have to deal with every time I self inject?… read more
