Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Jen!! I didn't know that you are an artist. That's so cool! What type of masks do you create. Can you post some on your photo. I am a glass artist, but I haven't been able to work for a year.
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for message about dimples...well it's been a few years since i wore a bikini so no worries on that front!!! Love Sarah x
Jen, I completely forgot I was working on it. Give me until Saturday and I'll send you the whole thing. Is this okay? J
Hope you feel better soon!Sorry to hear that you are experiencing the MS hug! I have parethesesias around there, like a burning feeling, not sure if that's the hug but it doesn't feel spasm like. I hope you get relief soon.
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a wonderful day. Enjoy, Kathy
Thank you for everything! Hi jensequitur!
I'd like to thank you for responding to my post/question. I appreciate it so much. I will watch for your posts also. May God bless you and keep you as healthy as you can be.
I want to know about this new puppy. I was looking for a picture. Is this a big puppy or a little puppy? Do tell. Good luck with the training. terry
Hi Jers. I have had many doppler u/s exams. I sure hope the tech takes the necessary time he/she needs to look at everything. You know they ask you what types of symptoms you are having before they start the test, at least they are supposed to do that. I would talk to him/her during the test and ask what they are looking for and if the veins look ok and even ask if you can get a peek at some of the images. Show you are interested in what they are doing as they might tell more than they normally tell. Heck, you might even get them to take more time to more carefully look at your vascular system in your legs than they normall do.
Thanks for your message about your upcoming appointment. So, a doppler is a place to start. But, I is that all they can do is look for blood clots, and I assume that is what they are looking for. Now, blood clots are a serious issue and that's why he ordered the u/s, but what else can they do if you are having a circulation or vascular issues? Is this a vascular doctor? I hope they don't find a clot, that would be bad. I also hope he will go outside the box if no clot is found and keep trying to find the root of the problem. Please let us know how that goes.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hey Jersey, I was wondering if yoiu are still planning on seeing the vascular doctor? I think this is something that I'd want to do too, but not sure if it will help explain some of my leg mysteries. Anyway, just wanted to see if this is still in your plan. I'd be very interested to know how it turns out for you. :)Julie
Yeah, I think we're all curious. The only veins I've seen mentioned when reading about CCSVI are the jugular and azygos veins, but I don't know why that should be.
Well, I hope you don't have a blood clot, but that doesn't seem to leave you any closer to knowing more than you did before.
Hi! I tried to find Lulu's message - I never saw it. How does one post their story on a new thread? Hope all is well with you. Thanks, Rondi (or Roni)
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for your email. I very briefly skimmed over Lulu's email (I think it was hers, don't
remember) but wanted to read it again (was rushing when read it). Somehow it's gone. I looked in my Trash, thinking
I accidentally erased it, but it wasn't there. I did have the test that was mentioned in that email (the Evoked ....) & it
was fine. Anyway, thanks again and good luck with everything. Roni/Rondi
Thank you for your post regarding the bone pain. My hunch was spasticity but since I new at the MS game I wasn't sure.
Also, Bejeweled is my nighttime past time in an attempt to improve the cog fog. Thanks again for the tip.
Thank you for your response regarding the cog fog and the suggestion about Bejeweled, etc. Played Bejeweled which is similar to Collapse (my favorite game of long ago) and found that I was extremely slow at playing this. So, this will be step one of the rehab and a fun way to start.
Just a quick note to say hi!'
Thank you for answering my post of Atrophy. I'm just trying to piece the puzzle together to fin a reasonable answer. Thanks for putting in your thoughts about it. They were worth way more that 2 cents. Thanks for replying.
Just a quick note to say hi! Thank you for leaving a note for me. I am brand new,and now I'm seeing that I should have explained more of what I wanted on my post. Oh well, I'll learn in time. Could you tell me what Dawson's Fingers are? I was trying to explain my MRI,and since i am a layman,I don't understand any of the reports. I will see the Neurologist in 6 mths,but I have a report for my own files.I just love investigating. Should I be posting on a different forum? Thank you so much for your time,...Bonnie
I use the word chilluns. I always thought it was native to our region. I guess not...I have 2 chilluns :)
Just a quick note to say hi!
Thanks very much for your response.
I am having trouble with bladder but most of the other sx are just numbness and tingles but you made me feel better re the lesions. I hope you are having a good day. Roxy
Thanks for your reply! I have had issues with my left hip (primarily) for the last few years. It is something to bring up again... :)
Hi - I didn't want to hijack the thread that Karen started about stiffness...so I would like to ask you directly a question about your stiffness if you don't mind.
Is your stiffness in the joint or muscle/tissue? I have problems with my left hip after sitting/laying or just not moving for a period of time. It takes a bit to get things moving. Mine does not feel like a joint problem.
Do you have problems all the time, or does it happen with flares? Mine seems to come & go like the rest of my symptoms.
Thanks for your help,
You've got that right... I decided to go ahead and vent away, although i always feel bad like I'm complaining or something. :) I do feel better now knowing that I'll get a big hug from at least one person. :)
I hope your zeal for reading and debating is a sign that your airecept treatment is still effective?
Tums is good for the calcium but that's about it! :) Prilosec really works the best for acid, and if you want to go cheap you can get the Walmart off-brand of Prilosec which seems to work almost as well, and a lot better than Tums. A week or two of that and it should help your acidy tummy. :) I hope that clears up for you fast! ~Sunnytoday~
I haven't choked since Sunday which is very very good. Must be the swallowing thing, as I was just sitting there calmly when I started to choke. Not fun. i'm really not at all worried about the choking thing at all anymore.... Smiles, funny how you can get your mind off of things when something else hurts, my tummy has been hurting for almost a week so that's been a bit of a bother to say the least. I'm REALLy hoping it mends soon without me having to see a doctor, as i'm a bit anti-doctor right now. Any rate, I do hope you have a wonderful day, and that you are trouble and pain-free today!
Oh, drat! I meant to send that in a private messge, too.
Your name vanished from my "Friends" list on my profile page. Did I do that? If so, it was surely an accident. I hope I said nothing to upset you.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Jens, wanted to say hello! How are you??? (((hugs))) - shell
Thanks for your note, Jen. No, I haven't founded any kind of street ministry (though I was saved after meeting some "Jesus freaks" in 1972), and I think I made it to Daily Kos once by accident. I appreciate you asking, though!
