Hi there, thanks for the note!  I've had a bit of a bumpy ride for a while, but I'm doing much better and will be back soon to post catch up on what's going on with the forum.  I've checked in a few times, but didn't have much oomph to write.  It's really nice to hear from you; I miss you and everyone, and will enjoy meeting all the people that have joined us while I've been MIA.  I hope you're doing well.  See ya' soon,   Kathy

Thank you for the note!!! Pain doc to day and I may have use my reverse rollator for the first time.  Put in a good word for DH as this is his biggest fear and hates the sight of it and all that it stands for, but yesterday I could hardly walk and could not raise myself from a lying position.

IF it comes to that , I will use the "transport chair" side and not the walker half.

Thanks again,
Ren

Thanks for your note Ess.  We went to the Holocaust museaum.  I did one exhibit with my cane and then had to resort to borrowing a wheelchair.  At least it made it much more enjoyable to do the rest of the exhibits.  It is so gorgeous that I didn't want to come back inside.  I hope you are making the most of the weather too.   Let's talk about getting together sometime if you like.

Thanks Ess!  yes, I can't wait to be back on the coast.  Wish I had time to make it to the island to Victoria but will have to save that for another trip.  I'm keeping an eye on the weather forecast, it was as high as 34 degrees celsius in parts of BC today; unlike here, where it will be going to 6 degrees celsius overnight here in the north!  brrrrr, not complaining though; better than heat and smog!

hey ess,
many thanks for your input on the potential hug.  excellent advice!  my doc. seems to be at a standstill as far as what she'd like to test for but i'll keep pressing on!  i hadn't thought of cardiac testing...it's a very good idea too.

Essie,

About a week ago you mentioned that your neuro was designing a research study involving MS patients with brain atrophy.  My MRI this past Feb showed that my brain has atrophied due to long-term MS.  The report  shows “atrophy that is more than one would expect for a person his age,” I'll soon be 58.  I'm not overly concerned and although I do have some cognitive issues, the atrophy is not an indicator of dementia.                                              Anyway, Can you please tell me the name of the doctor/research.  I am always anxious to learn more aboout such matters.  The other thing I am wondering is if the research is a large study or just beiing conducted by the institution where your doctor works.

Thank
Frank

Hi Ess. Thanks for your note. I just read your post. It sounds like we both had good visits with our NPs today, but your neuro visit was definitely phenomenol.  We think we know what is causing my swelling - Gabupentin (neurontin).  I had a little blood work to check my kidney and liver function if that is ok, then we will decide what to do about the Gab dosages.  Oh and tthe rash is not a rash. Edema is what is causing the redness.  Otherwise things are going well.  I am so excited about the study and can't wait to hear about your experiences with it.  :)  Julie

Where do get-up-and-goes go to?  If we could find them and bring them back, we could have a lot of people going and getting more done.  Of course, someone would have to get up and go get them; oh, this could go on toooooooo long, lol!   It's beautifully sunny here, mild temperature, and I'm sitting on my tush.  Hope you're having an OK day.   Kathy

Thank you. Your reply was really helpful as guess what I had not yet found search this site and think this should be pointed out to new members, along with where to find help with acronyms used (which I found very helpful) and to keep paragraphs short. I am still learning but picking up the hang of this site thanks to everyone's help xxxx

I'm going to forward you my inital question that I summitted the other night. It doesn't include the totality of my symptoms...but I've had a killer headache for the past 3 and a half weeks, so I haven't been sitting at the computer for too long lately. My eyes were examined and ok, but no medication is helping. Thanks! Clumptine
