“@Jude.. thankfully I’ve never run into a doctor like that. The relapse I had that got my diagnosis was Trigeminal Neuralgia. Worst pain I ever felt. I’d be very tempted to zap a doctor with a Tazer and tell him that THAT didn’t hurt.”  ~Ruth Schwartz Covington

“We are mistaken! Are we sure it’s MS! Oh, and maybe its Fibromyalgia! Say What!!!  ~Nyree Simposn

“@RUTH I CHANGED DOCTORS. I HAVE T.N. TOO AND M.S. HUG SO SEVERE I CAN’T BREATHE AT TIMES.”  ~Jude Moore

“Judy ugh! I haven’t had T.N. but that nasty MS hug. It’s killing me as we speak. And yes very much makes it hard to breathe.”  ~Katy Greenwell-Costa

“I went to bed with a hug last night and it was’nt the most loving of hugs, I really just wanted to cry,but I was to fatigued to do so. Do you think stress can cause this? or make it worse.I was only diagnosed 9 months ago had this for 13-14 years, I am a bit of a novice with this MS business. Thinking of you all. xx “ ~Karen Bishop

 

“Sorry I forgot to mention I thought I was having a heart attack. x”  ~Karen Bishop

“Karen, stress makes everything worse. I was diagnosed 4 years ago, but have had it at least since I was a teen. I just finally couldn’t ignore the symptoms any longer. I had 3 exacerbations really close. The diagnosis scared me, made me angry you know all you feel. My Mom passed away a month later, and my ex husband (2kids dad) was in war in Afghanistan (sp?) There was talk for about 1 year that I had PPMS I knew I didn’t (denial?) After about 1 yr after my diagnosis, things settled. I’m still working and active. My stress was through the roof!! Once I got into counseling and my world wasn’t upside down, I started to heal. Feel free to lean on me for support too!” ~Katy Greenwell-Costa
