Can’t blame everything on MS

Toward the end of January, or maybe beginning of February, I think I started a mild flare, ie: fatigue, right side felt weaker, bit of brain fog, and flu like -muscles ache, tingly arms, the hot wire down my arm, muscle spasms in face, you know. Not all the time, but just enough to know they were there. Continued to go to gym, even for 20 minutes walking, but really? Felt like I was pushing. So then, finally, I thought, time to go for a massage. Luckily, I have coverage through work, and OMG, what a difference lol. So, seriously, maybe the shovelling, carrying wood etc., mighta made a few extra twinges??? Am I 20?? Not. lol. So, on my to do list. Stay positive, keep moving, and get some alternative therapy!!! Next = maybe accupunture? supposed to be good for pain – like the migraines??

Please let me know if acupuncture helps with migraines. I have bouts of mad, mad migraine and at my wits end because I don’t know what to take anymore.

Just curious. How long have you had MS? What meds do you take.
I was diagnosed last summer. I started daily injections in October and so far so good. Before the meds I had a flare up 3 times in 6 months.

I was dxed in Jan. 2011. It took about a year for the whole diagosis process. I have had one mild flare each year-although the flare this year seemed a little stronger so we are doing an MRI to check things out. I don’t really want to switch off copaxone-as it seems to be the best med with the least number of side affects. Not sure how long I have actually had it-I wonder though. I am glad the injections are working for you! We can only try our best right? I also use the Copaxone site on Facebook-and their is a Ladies with Lesions Facebook site as well.
