Hi, just a quickie to say, I don't know much about low magnesium.  Are you on a GOOD mag supplement - like mag orotate, mag arginate, mag taurate, succinate, etc?  the usual kind of magnesium you can get is Magnesium oxide and it is not very good or available to the body.  the other thing you asked about was the test for detecting hypoglycemia.  This is a 5 hour Glucose Tolerance Test, not just the usual 3 hour one.  Hope this helps, Q

Thanks for your note.  Sorry to hear about you're having to go to the hospital because your Magnesium levels were low.  It seems they have a shot for everything, hopefully they do for it also.  I take a 400 mg supplement daily and it seems to be keeping my levels normal.  I also take vitamins which has some in it also.  I hope you miss the bronchitis thing this year !!  Take care !!

Thank you for your note !  I was searching for info on how to read my MRI pictures.  Amazingly, I found exactly what I need on this site.  I've checked out several Health Topics and I know I will keep learning more about this crazy disease from this site.  Thanks a lot !! Cara

Sunny,
please, please please don't cancel the Friday appt. with the local neuro - you might just have a wonderful doctor right there and not know it yet.  

I see your note about burning up - have you got the flu coming on?  I sure hope not.
hugs to you,
Laura

thank you! that makes me feel a touch better but not completely.... how about if your pcp calls the cardio to get you in sooner?  3 months is an absurd length of time to wait ..........  thanks again for listening.

Darn it ST, no matter what you try to do or say, you DO HAVE TO GO to the cardiologist.  Can you tell that was my strict mother voice lecturing you?  Something cardio is going on and you need it controlled or fixed - this one os much too important to ignore.  I want you around here for years to come!
love, L

Hi, I just wanted to leave you a note to tell you how inspiring you are! You take everything in stride and make lemonade out of lemons. Your strong faith shines through your personality as well.

Your response regarding the AFO's actually made me want a pair and I don't need them (yet) ! You are a delight!

I'm so glad you're on the forum but sad that you have the need.

Take care,
Rendean

Sorry to hear your internet's not acting right.  I do despise not being connected to the rest of the world anymore.  We'll surely pray it's back as it ought to be ASAP.

Belated (((HUGS))) for you Sunny-B.  Sorry I missed your post - I was under the weather w/some sort of ick.  When are you going to NY and how long you staying? You know I'm in NJ, and not sure I'll make it there, but I always have good intentions.  Wouldn't that be cool? (((hugs))) - shell

Hi Sunny.  What is happening with your symptoms today?  Anything different or new from yesterday or last week?  Have you decided if you are going into the doctor this week? Someone medical-wise needs to document what is happening to you right now.  I hope you can get in to see someone.  More importantly, I hope you can find some respite from this flare.  Take care my friend.  - Julie

I am having a lovely weekend because my grandchildren visited today as did 2 of my daughters so I've had lots of cuddles and I've been spoiled. You take care and have a lovely weekend too, the shakes are horrible and always hit me with fatigue too. So get lots of rest.

Sunny, I've only just checked in to catch up on what's happening on here as I am in the UK the timing differs so much.  I haven't known you long but you made me so  welcome when I first joined and were my first friend on here too. You really have a huge heart and I really feel for you. You must take everyone's advice and drive your doctor mad by going every time you have any changes or any symptoms at all.  I have 3 daughters and I just wanted to just give you a huge 'mum type' hug and spoil you for a while but as we are so far away I will just send loads of love and hugs and say I do hope you feel better soon. and yes people here don't mind you venting, I wish I had found you all sooner. Take care and we are all thinking of you. Pat X

You deserve a big bear hug! Sunny, you just made my day, I am so glad yu now have a shower chair. You'll be surprised at how much more relaxing your showers are going be, and safer too.
I am so sorry your legs are giving you such fits. Please be extra careful you don't fall, maybe you could check into a w/c just for now, until things settle down.. Believe me I know how hard it is to even think about it, but it is just for now and for your safety
Believe me I know there are times when I say, "OK, enough already"...
Just know that I am here for you
sending you your daily hugs{{{~!~}}}

In the context of MS, weakness is caused by damage to the nerves that tell the muscles to contract.  Weakness is usually the cause of the cement legs.  I feel like my right leg is a tree stump that I am dragging around.  Q

AFOs help with weakness in the calves and ankles.  I suspect you are having hip weakness.  Sit on a high chair and try to lift your knee up.  If you can't do it then the problem is hip FLEXOR weakness.  If you can do it, see if you can do it against someone pressing lightly down on the knee.

Thanks for your concern.  Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of faith in my MS neuro.  I managed to get in to see her during a full flare of symptoms, and was so pleased that she finally saw me as a neurological patient.  Then I got her chart notes; she hadn't noted the hyper reflexes, lack of balance, or anything except the tremors in my arms.  On my next visit she said that she thought my symptoms were from small strokes that I'd had because of an irregular heartbeat, which my PCP said was impossible with the kind of irregular heartbeat I've had in the past.  I probably need to find a new neuro, but I don't know where to turn next.  I'm seeing a rheumatologist next month, so I can get some testing done for other things like Sjogren's.
I'll put this latest in my Timeline.

Hi there, Sunny honey,
I'm hanging in there.  I didn't go online yesterday, and am just checking in for a minute.  I'm still real dizzy, tired, and nauseous at times, with my neck hurting, and having some strange prickling/tingling feelings up my scalp from where my neck hurts.  I'm glad I've written quite a bit of this on the forum, because I don't think I can update me timeline now, with the way I'm feeling.  Thanks for checking to see how I'm doing.           hugs,  Kathy
