Hello everyone......have you heard the news about long covid? The scientists have found a trigger in the immune system which is involved in this reaction. Hmmm, sounds like this is something closely related to the development of ms 🙄 Lets hope they think laterally.
I just wanted to say that I am currently having the Ocrevus treatment and am over 50, so I was given the opportunity to have the Covid Vaccine, which I was so pleased to have.
The NHS are amazing for the system they have organised to make this a safe and speedy operation.
As for the vaccine, I have to say that I suffered quite a horrible headache for about 4 days and my body felt like it had been 10 rounds with Mike Tyson, but all said and done, this was nothing compared to what may have been the symptoms should I have contracted Covid.
I wanted to write this as there seems to be so much negativity around the whole situation, the way that I am looking at it, is that I am here, I am able to have dinner with my husband and chat to my children and am looking forward to welcoming my first grandchild into the world. This seems very mundane, but they are the things that make me smile and appreciate being alive.
I hope that everyone that is on here, is keeping safe and avoiding this awful virus.
Sending positive vibes to you all, thank you for the chat and information that has kept me sane through not only this current situation, but also through my MS journey so far. Keep up the good work everything you post and your replies are so valuable.

I was diagnosed with MS 10 years ago, I have relapse and remitting MS. Thankfully I have very mild and brief relapses, and I’m not receiving any treatment for my MS.
I have recently met a partner who has told me they have chronic hepatitis B, which has left me with a huge dilemma. If I was to stay with my partner I’d need to receive the Hepatitis B vaccine to safeguard myself, but I’m uneasy with the idea of having the Hepatitis B vaccine as the link between the vaccine and MS is negative. And I wouldn’t want to do anything that could cause my MS to progress.
I’d be grateful if I could hear others experiences with their MS and having the Hepatitis B vaccine please.
I have a problem where I cannot control my middle finger when I press to he left mouse button with my index finger. Subsequently, I end up right clicking when I want to left click. I am using an Apple ouse at the moment which has a rocker switch that resolves the issue but it's a rubbish mouse in other ways. I'm n a fortunate position in that my employer is happy to pay out for a better one but I've yet to find anything suitable.
Does anyone have similar issues? Did you find a solution and achieve mouse nirvana?
