We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

Running over the same old ground.

What have we found?

The same old fears.

Oh, I thought it good news about you.

 

 

 

Well, that's good on the alcohol front cause I went mad a couple weeks ago on a night out and can't count how many I drank. Haha, but I know I had fun.

Well it is sort of about me. :rolleyes:

 

Its good to know that I'm not making matters worse with the odd glass or two.

I wouldn't risk going so far as losing count, my head would explode.

Its a pain really. I used to like the odd glass or two.

Is good news for those who still can! I'm sadly not one of them anymore, any alcohol in any quantity brings on a headache from hell :( :wine::stars:

We, I kinda nicked a tip, someone posted elsewhere, from their MS nurse, that a glass of red wine helps with tremors.....and I can report back that it does indeed alleviate my tremor :wine:

Sadly, I don't manage more than one glass as too many blinkin' meds!

I can vouch that red wine does seem to calm things down. A couple even more.

Funny though how I have always found that alcohol makes the permenant tingle in my feet worse. I may have to go get some alcohol and re-investigate. All in the name of science of course :yuck:

I found that post MS alcohol affected me much quicker. Can't go mad the way I did in my youth. The odd glass of wine is enough for me these days. But it's good to know that it's not doing me any harm.

But that might be down to meds?

 

I was always a lightweight tho, so now it just gets me a bit quicker :spin:

    • Just a small Thankyou

      At the risk of sounding a bit soppy, I just wanted to say Thankyou, to all those who have offered kind words of support, wisdom and encouragement during the short time I have been on here. You have got me through some questionable points, and undoubtedly, will be there to get me through more. But more importantly, as I sit and read through the newcomers threads, unable to give any constructive advice, I feel very humble and thankful on all our behalf, for your sincere kindness!   THANKYOU!   Sam x

    • Some small concerns

      Been a while since I last popped in. Been busy with my course and family issues, and under the belief that everything was actually going okay. Well okay so my eyes kept putting distance between themselves, but hey I could deal with that, mostly because I didn't notice it.   'Course, because I haven't been thinking about it, I've been perfectly happy getting on with my life, sans my parents reminding me to get on the injections. Well to do that I'd need to get some anti-depressants, and finding a good doctor round here hasn't been easy. Hopefully I'm a small step closer, now, with one round the corner, and now Uni's out I'm not likely to miss any appointments.   This is all trivial and space-filling. I'll get to the point.   A couple months ago, I went into A&E. My chest hurt. BAD. I'd just come out of work, and started walking home, only to stop because breathing in was becoming difficult. Went in, had tests... They couldn't find the answer. Though saying that, they were looking at my heart after dismissing the lungs. I went in for another test on my heart, it's fine. I was expecting that.   But the pains haven't stopped, and in certain circumstances can be just as bad. Right in the center of my chest, sometimes worse when I move my arms out... Its horrible.   My family have taken a look at certain records, and apparently this can be a symptom of MS in rare cases... Not nice.   But is it really? Is this really a symptom I should be aware of or should I take myself back up to the hospital for tests for something else?
