tschock - just seeing these answers. Not sure how they escaped me. Anyway, thanks for the reply. Makes total sense to me. My dietitian and gastroenterologist are the ones to insist that I keep eating grains. I'm doing my own thing these days and am avoiding gluten anyway for the reasons you mentioned. It just doesn't make sense to insist upon ...

Hello... Longtime medhelp member, first-time dermatology poster. I had a rash two years ago that just about sent me nuts it was so itchy and weepy. It ran from my buttocks to my knees and would stick to my clothes, form a crust, eep, ooze, crust, repeat, ....meanwhile itching til I just about couldn't stand it anymore. I saw three dermatologists who pres...

Hello forum!! It's been a very long time since I posted anything. I still think of you all fondly. I've recently sent 3 (yes- three!) school friends here who are going through MS testing. :( so hard to see anyone deal with this, but it's a great help to have a place to ask questions and get answers. I came here looking for the health pages...

I had Lhermittes shocks in my first big relapse in 2011. I had another random Lhermites shock since, but don't have it as an ongoing symptom. My nervous system likes those zapping symptoms apparently as I also have had trigeminal neuralgia.

Glad to hear it! I called for information but then my TN disappeared and I never tried. Do you have TN?

Reading your story rang a familiar chord in me... I'm in Italy under the national health system here and had similar troubles getting a diagnosis. I saw a handful of neuros through the system and one privately, none of whom felt I "looked like" I had MS in spite of me having L'hermittes, double vision, what was later diagnosed as optic ne...

I use the clip on metal studs under my shoes that sound like what Sarah suggests. Love them! I also have a cane that's completely collapsible and stows neatly in my handbag. It's there if I need it and out of sight and mind when I can do without. I use it when I'm unsteady near my home, but not at the grocery store where I have the cart to s...

I had this problem for most of my life. I took Benefiber for years, psyllium husks, and finally chia seeds and did find a measure of relief from each for a while. With time though, I ended up back where I started with each. Last year I did a complete diet overhaul (paleo) to help with eczema and some digestive issues and went from a "once-each-two/...

Finding a good neuro can be tricky. I flew from Italy to the States to get away from the system here and find someone who would spend more than 15 minutes with me. I went to a great neuro in Chicago that I'd happily refer if you're anywhere near there.
