Default Can Everything Just Stop

So I just wanted to know because everything just seem to have stop. I have a few twitches but not all that I was going through like my feet are not hurting when I get up.

This is the best I have felt in months.

Hello

I have had symptoms that have just stopped..... that is the remitting part of relapsing remitting MS. Particularly in the early stages, myelin regenerates and you make a full recovery.

Enjoy it, and I hope you feel this good for a really long time.

Cheers

Lyn

This can happen. It happened to me from time to time when I was still working. the trick here is to not stop your preventive measures, if you have any, like your diet, rest, etc.
Don't be fooled by the remission. On the other hand, do not deny that the healing has happened. Don't say you just imagined the symptoms when you had them. This is a pattern of Relapsing Remitting, I guess. I say "I guess" because I guess about everything related to neurological disease.

I like to make hay while the sun shines.

Although others say I am expending all my energy and increasing my stress level, which I am, to me it is far less stressful to feel as if I am actively planning and making things easier for myself in times to come when the monster rears its ugly head.

I have been fortunate in that stress, while it will increase my minor MS symptoms, so far knock on wood, even extreme physical and mental stress hasn't caused a huge MS problem for me so I keep pushing ahead while I can.

I hate this disease!!!!

Congratulations! Enjoy the time "off." It may be a few weeks or years or even always. Some (no one I know) people never have a symtom again.

I hope your first remission lasts as long as mine did (about 17 yrs.)
My Daughter (42) with MS has been enjoying a 6 yr remission and I'm praying she keeps going!

Default Thanks All

I am feeling great but I didn't want to claim it yet. But I had my youngest grandson over this weekend and he is 9 months. I have not been able to keep him because of all of the things that were going on with me. The last time I kept him I started getting shooting pain from the shoulder down my arm and I was screaming out so I stop getting him until I started feeling better. I am on morphine and gabapentin and oxycodone and if pain gets through those meds I know that I am in real pain because I have a high tolerance for pain since I have been getting it since I was 10, first it was the sickle cell which turned in to the trait but I gave it to all 5 of my children and no their father don't have it. all my life I been in pain.

Well I guess I really have something to tell the doc when I go back next week and my appt for the MS center is not until July or August.

You all have been so helpful. I love how the internet can bring us all together from all over the world because sometimes that is all some of us have.

well things are starting to come back now. my feet hurt when I stand like my big toes, the nerves in them hurt so bad when I walk on my feet and the balls of my feet are burning, my twitches in my fingers are back but not as bad right now.
