... problem and what works for you?
Hi there. My sister was diagnosed with MS in Febuary. At first she could not walk at all. They gave her a steroid drip for 7 days and it worked. She now is having problems with her balance and she was admitted again for steroids but it did not work. The doctors are going to put her on Mitoxantrone, the only problem is that the drug is very dangerous. Could we please stay in touch as I would love to start chatting to people with this condition. Thank you.
I have the same prblem as well as pain walking gets very difficult smetimes I trip my kids say ants are tripping me. My only advise is I hold on to things walls my husbands hand or arm when in grocery store I always push a cart for support my hubby and kids think I should get a cane or walker to help me. And I avoid stairs as much as possible. There is a place called msf multiple sclerosis foundation you can look it up on the web or your local phonebook they help you figure ut ways to make life more comfotable for us whether it is walking bathing airconditioning for infrmation and to assist on getting you thse things no cost to you even prgrams to assist in exercise yoga water arobics physical or massage therapy great organization even events to meet ther friends face to face who are members fun family events as well as supprt groups I think they can help all of us they have me with info t even explain t my kids what ms is I hope all wh reads this checks it out they are seperate frm the ms society which I am also a member of good luck hope this helps
