Keeping your balance when you have MS

Balance problems and difficulty walking are two of my most troublesome MS symptoms. Luckily, there are exercises I can do to reduce the impact these symptoms have on my everyday life.  Even if you don’t have a neurological condition it’s a good idea to add balance training to your fitness regimen. Start improving your balance […]

At last

I started writing the following a little while ago, but never finished it. I’m at the hospital waiting to check in for my MRIs. I see the neurologist next week for a 6- month follow-up.

Learned Another Thing

My MS flare-up means taking a steroid drug called Dexamethasone. Its side-effects include upset stomach and stomach irritation. My stomach is upset and irritated.
