Does anyone have a partner/spouse who resents you and is really angry because he/she has to do more?

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

Could this be MS hug?

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

Epsom salt baths for MS?

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?

What’s the next step?

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.

Brain fog & prefrontal cortex lesions

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

Ermahgerd! Copaxone burns after injecting!

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
