I was diagnosed in 96 and have done pretty good until recently. The main problem is urinary tract infections. I keep having them and I honestly don't think they have ever gone away. I keep taking antibiotics, even different ones, but they just come back. I see a urologist and after tests were done it was found that I don't empty by bladder and was put on Flomax. The side effects were dizziness and fatigue so I quit taking it. I'm so scared that I'll have to be catherized, scared because a friend of mine with ms passed away due to an awful infection from one. I always feel awful, this is no way to live.View Thread
