I hope you feel better! Try to stay positive and think of something that makes you smile. I joke about my symptoms to get me through. I cannot get in the bed on a regular. I have to use a step stool. Sometimes i try to do something and that body is like nope! What you think u doing? Nothing, go sit down! Oh you think u putting on some jeans today. Nope hands too numb for u to button! Try again next time. Yeah its silly, but i have conversations with this body. Rather its a psuedo-exacerbation or a true MS relapse. It ain't fun!

Hi SwissmissLAURA I love your name😊

I'm sorry to hear about your diffulcultlys, I'm wondering is there anyway to lower your bed? It's an idea.

I am glad you are here tho! I'm sure you will make many friends!😊

I would say a stool, but I don't think that would help if you can't step up on it. Hmmmm I'm thinking.... 🙄🤔 💕

I'm sorry you're struggling. I'll be praying that your UTI resolves quickly and that you get your legs back quickly, too.

I'm sorry your struggling because of your uti. Seems anytime we get an infection of any kind our bodies get out of whack with everything :( Hope you are back to your 'normal' soon.

That sounds pretty uncomfortable, sending you prayers of healing and relief. Have you checked with your doctor about antibiotics or drinking lots of Cranberry juice? Feel better soon.

SwissmissLAURA Sorry about all of your discomfort. They sure don't tell us about all the negative problems of MS, related to other health issues in all the research. I finally got to reach my toenails for a trimming & buffing, then had spasms and charlie horses for about 6 hours after. that was a first time experience for me. I sure hope you get some relief very soon and your appt tomorrow goes very well.

I had been struggling with uti infections. It always effected my legs

Then one night I broke into a high fever could not move my legs at all. Fell onto the floor trying to get out of bed. Waited several hours for help.

Hospitalized I was diagnosed with a kidney infection caused from a untreated uti. I never had the symptoms.

A friend of mine that had a spinal cord injury, was getting a lot of Uti’s gave me this recipe that has worked for me

I started a routine of taking 1000mg time release Vitamin C 1x daily combined with Methionine / Hipporate 1 mg 2x daily

It works!
