It Might Be Time For a MS Check-Up

DannyUnfortunately I need to go see my neurologist.  I have noticed over the last few weeks that my symptoms are flaring up much more than usual.  This usually means a new lesion is causing an exacerbation.  When this occurs my limbs experience more pain than normal, which is incredibly uncomfortable.

Right now I am experiencing lightning flash pains in my legs that take my breathe away at times.  Also, I have been losing feeling in my left hand, which is a brand new symptom for me.  I’ve had hand pain in the past, but I’ve never experienced numbness.  The most annoying symptom is the return of the headaches.  I don’t want to go back on meds, but I also don’t want to burden Evelina with my constant complaining about the pain.

Hopefully the doctor has some great solution.

A tale of never ending sleepyness…

Today our post is on fatigue!

We thought we would do a post on this as it’s something that seems to come as an added bonus with most chronic conditions. It makes you sleepy all the time and just thinking about doing anything makes you even more sleepy! For me it’s also the one that’s just never ending…

So what is fatigue?

Fatigue seems to be experienced differently by people. For me it comes in two forms:

  1. Complete lack of energy! It’s as though all of my energy has just suddenly drained out of me and simple activities such as moving feel impossible.
  2. My bones feel so heavy it’s as though they are made of lead and if I try to move I feel as though I’m trying to move through a swamp. This one likes to appear mostly in the mornings. I feel I should be given a medal sometimes just for managing to get out of…

Our story. Through my eyes.

When I met Greg I was in no way looking for anything. I was happy with my life the way it was. Just my kids and I. I loved my job and spent my off days working in the yard or on some project in the house.

I wasn’t against love or believed it was something that couldn’t happen to me. I just didn’t need a man to be happy. I was content with the way things were.

Greg is one of the most unique men I have ever met. I’ve never known a man so accepting of others. Although he may not agree. He never judges anyone. From the day I met him I felt I could tell him anything. I was totally comfortable. It was easy as if I had known him for years.

He is one of the most caring and generous…

Dizzy on MS: What is MS?

Dinosaurs, Donkeys and MS!

Dinosaurs, Donkeys and MS

For the last week of MS awareness month me and Dizzy have decided to make a little post and video about MS. One of the things I find most difficult with MS is trying to explain to people what exactly it is. People mostly think MS=wheelchairs and that’s about it, so we’re going to hopefully try and explain it abit better! 🙂

You can either read through our post (which is hopefully not too wafflely!) and contains more information on points, watch our little video on the basics (at the bottom of the page) or both! 🙂

HElloDizzy(3)So what is MS?

MS is a neurological, autoimmune condition of the central nervous system.

MS is an autoimmune condition because the immune system gets abit confused and no longer recognised part of the central nervous system (CNS), the myelin, as self. Myelin is a substance that protects the nerve fibres so that messages are able to travel from the CNS to…
