Hi everyone, I've been sitting in the lovely warm sun this morning, reading my Kindle, sunglasses & hat on when I decided it was time to move around. Well! I felt really unwell & was glad to take a proffered strong hand. Feeling much better now in the cool of the sitting room and after a long drink. Just made me wonder if ms can make you lose your temperature awareness & control. This would also explain my sudden sneezing fits! Any views out there? Jill x
does ms play a part in body temperature ? I have no cold or flu symptons always feeling the cold,ive got the heating on full ,and family are moaning its too hot !!,and stripped of to the bare minium !! tc guys xx
I don't know why but I've just noticed that when I'm drying my hair (quite vigourosly) I'm getting weird tingly sensations all over my body.
I can replicate whenever I rub my scalp.
Has anyone else ever experienced this ?
As some of you know I went back to college this september to start an Access to Higher Education course, with the view to going to Uni next year. I live in Cambridge, so if I stay local I have either actual Cambridge as a choice, or the 'other uni' which is ranked 106 out of 116 in the country .... talk about both ends of the spectrum!
So, considering I am going to leave with the same amount of debt no matter where I go, I figure I might get more bang for my buck if I choose the best uni I can academically manage to get in to.
There are so many practicalities to consider with regards to moving, and MS is not helping.
As I am on Tysabri, I would want to be sure I could still have that if I moved areas. Does anyone know if this would definitely be possible anywhere I go, or could some areas refuse it? (for instance if they have different criteria or a limited number of patients allowed on it or something?)
I keep meaning to ring the MS nurse about it, but am putting it off as I feel a bit bad for bothering them with that and not something directly medical.....so I thought I'd just ask here to see if anyone has any experience of moving areas and the differences in treatment etc.
Also, if I stay locally, and go to the less prestigious (or rather, not prestigious) Uni, then I have the chance to study in Canada in the 2nd year for 6months, this is very appealing to me because I have always wanted to go to Canada and feel it would be a good in between of not moving away but still having a good experience. Does anyone know what implications that might have for treatment, continuing tysabri etc? Someone suggested to me I might not be allowed a visa in to the country due to health reasons, is that possible?
Any thoughts are much appreciated on this, I have a big decision to make and have got to make it quick if I'm going to apply to anywhere decent, I need to get it done in the next couple weeks.....arrrghhhh.....
Now back to that personal statement *lesigh*..
