Does Anyone Have Suggestions On Minimizing Relapses?

Does Anyone Have Suggestions On Minimizing Relapses?

I have been having alot more relapses lately and its frustrating. I'm on Baclofen and Morphine to help and also Gaba-Pentin for the numbness but none of it seems to be helping lately. My mom and I are going to the drs this week and she wants my morphine upped but I'm not sure what else to do. I was on injections with steroids and a numbing crap in my back before for pain and to help the relapses but I had a reaction after the 3rd visit so we had to stop them. I would appreciate any feedback I… read more

How Long Did You Wait To Get On A DMT And Did You Have To Take Off Work?

How Long Did You Wait To Get On A DMT And Did You Have To Take Off Work?

Hi Everyone, I was recently diagnosed with MS. I started Tecfidera and it made me extremely sick (vomiting, stomach pain, flushing, ms symptoms are worse). I could not eat for 48 hours so my doctor told me to stop taking it. I was wondering how long did you wait to get on a DMT after diagnosis? Did you take time off work while trying DMTs or trying to stabilize? What DMT works for you?

Has Anyone Noticed Walking Trouble With Tecfidera?

Has Anyone Noticed Walking Trouble With Tecfidera?

I've been on Tecfidera for 8 days, yesterday being the first day at full-dose, 240mg, and have noticed my walking has become much clumsier in the past week. I broke down and bought a collapsible cane for when I'm out and need extra support and am fatigued, but I see that've needed it constantly since I bought it. Is anyone's else noticing walking difficulties while on Tecfidera? I'm not going to jump to conclusions but another person reported this issue on MSWorld Forums yesterday… read more

I am single and am looking for someone to spend time with. Many times I meet someone that is how I am treated. I do use a walker, but why am I treated this way. I work with kids and they treat me better. It is just my imagination>

I would have to say ignorance and lack of Education. What you don't know makes you afraid so rumors and rumors of rumors abound and we just have to educate people.

Fecal Incontenence

Fecal Incontenence

Is anyone on Questran for bowel issues? If so, what side effects are you experiencing? It's usually prescribed to lower cholesterol but is also used to help with fecal incontinence. Are bowel issues pretty common in MS? TIA
