Hi I've just join the M S Club!!

I'm very interested in your choices.

I've been taken peppermint infusions to help with the digestion and I am also taking Serra Peptase, sorry not got the bottle with me. I have had good results with this little, I can not pick up a plate, cup, glass and cut my food up without terrible pain!!

Baclofen = Spasms, I found they took a while to start working and i have had to have maximum dose to get any benifit out of them but yes they are helping me loads..


Deazepam= spasms and anxiety, I started on a high dose when all my symptoms started but ive managed to come off them and just take these when my symptoms flare up.. yes they do work but wouldnt want to become reliant on them..


Tramodol= for the pain, they work great for me as they are the only pain killer that actually work when pain gets really bad.


Antibiotics= perminant for bladder/kidney infections


Codeine + paracetamol =pain


Gabapentin = burning pain

Hello, just joined this month, June 2013. I would like the medics to be more willing to try treatments to see what works, especially while m.s. continues to be a little understood condition.

I take Low Doae Naltrexone at night, 4.5 mg on private prescription (as local NHS won't provide!) I take it to help with fatigue, mood and boost immune system.

For general health I take supplements from Nature's Best e.g. calcium, vitamin D. Saw a neurologist nearly 2 yrs ago & said I needed some treatment to help manage the symptoms - fatigue, weakness and poor balance. He would only prescribe modafinyl - a drug prescribed for narcolepsy - I said no.

Thanks for asking an interesting question.

Paracetamol + Naproxen = General Pain

Mepradec = Anti inflammatory to help with Naproxen

Tramadol = Back Pain

Pregabalin = Muscle & tissue Pain

Dantrolene & Amitriptyline = Muscle Spasms & to help me sleep free from more pain


Was taking Copaxone but received more pain from injecting than i had to deal with before injecting so quit it. Am quite sad that it didnt work as I was looking forward to being relatively relapse free & maybe having a reasonable future.


Had tried Avonex for 5 yrs only to find side effects continued to become worse instead of getting better over time so stopped that too.

    • More new symptoms...experience/advice?

      Hi all. Hope everyone is doing as okay as can be! I've had these new symptoms for about .. 2-3 months now.. they're driving me insane.. My jaw/teeth clenching together. I'm not knowingly doing it. Just happens. Starting to really hurt my jaw and teeth from the strain and pressure of it. Also my eyes have been automatically squeezing closed. Sort of a similar feeling to when cutting onions (minus the tears and stinging) but that urge to squeeze the eyes shut. Does anyone else experience these? Thank you!

    • Why heat causes or exacerbates MS symptoms

      Here’s an explanation about heat sensitivity and raised body temperature in MS.   Heat – Multiple Sclerosis Research Blog MULTIPLE-SCLEROSIS-RESEARCH.ORG My thoughts are for our readers with MS who are having to live through and cope with the latest heatwave. The BBC has just reported that this is the hottest late August bank holiday on...   I must admit that I didn’t stop to think that the heat of this weekend is why I’ve been saying my vision seems blurrier than usual! Doh..!

    • New symptoms and scary

      Hello. I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2014. Until the last 6 months, I have been coming down with fever so bad it puts me in bed for days and nights. I'm taking Aubagio 14mg daily. It's really starting to change my life. My gp is useless and does not listen. Neither does my ms nurse  . Nothing gets investigated and I feel so let down.

    • Do my symptoms sound familiar?

      Hello   I hope no one minds me joining and posting here. I don't have a diagnosis of MS but I have a long and tedious list of random symptoms. I feel I'm being fobbed off by my GP who seems to think I'm either a hypochondriac or depressed. I don't think I'm either. I know some of the following are normal for a 45 year old working mum, but I'm listing everything to give a full picture... 
        Stomach issues and weight loss Twitching muscles / nerves and jerking fingers Sore, burning patches of skin (shoulder / armpit and thighs) Weird numb, weak feeling in left forearm Stiff, weak hands Clumsiness Blurred vision at times Lower back pain Random pins and needles Poor memory and concentration Dizziness / feeling spaced out Exhaustion Anxiety Zero libido   I've had various tests and the only things that have come up are B12 deficiency (not pernicious anaemia), positive ANA and a hiatus hernia. GP says that none of these are likely to be causing my symptoms. I experienced a sudden earlyish menopause a few years ago but HRT hasn't helped me feel better. GP is reluctant to treat B12 as tests for PA were negative, despite me eating a good diet and taking supplements at the time.    The burning skin, finger jerking and weird feeling in my arm are new symptoms over the past couple of months and are what has led me here.   I know nobody here can diagnose me of course. I just wonder whether my GP should be doing more. They don't seem remotely interested to be honest.   Thank You

    • Advice on symptoms?

      Just wondering if you lot could advise meon something?   I've been getting back pain, neck/jaw spasms, random bruising, confusion and altered sensations such as; pins and needles, numbness and crawling on my skin.   They first suspected something to do with the kidneys, I had an ultrasound and everything looked clear to them.   Tonight, I experienced breathlessness and severe pains in my sides, as i was walking, felt as if something was moving inside of me.   I'm young, dumb and not sure what to do next lol.   Thanks, Paige :) xx
