Here's a great site with lots of info.
my mother-in-law was diagnosed with MS about 10 years ago. MS leaves abrasions on your brain, for whatever reason and attacks your muscles and nervous system. They were worried about mom because she was such a worrier and that would onset the symptoms. She took some type of shot to help her because she had some paralysis along with hers (remember their are LOTS of different degrees of MS).
i'm sorry that i don't have a lot more information, but the website jan posted is the best website to answer any questions.
Thanks for that info.
I have a friend I recently started spending time with. Our youngest boys go to kindergarten together and are best buds so her little boy is over often. She has MS but I didn't want to ask her too much about it and be insensitive but I wanted to understand it better. This really helped explain some stuff and will help me be a more supportive friend.
For instance, I always thought she was just a flighty person as she frequently forgets little things or has a hard time with making decisions. I thought MS affected motor movement but now I know better and this is likely part of her MS that she does a good job covering. But you can really see her work at it to just appear flighty. That has to be frustrating.
Thanks so much for the link.
Steph, that's so sad!
