Hi, I don't know if what you describe could be symptoms of MS but you don't need to be on this chat site asking people who aren't doctors, you should make an appointment and go to see a doctor when you can. I have alot of different health issues, and I go to the doctor alot, but if I don't go then I can't get better. Until you know what you have or exactly what is going on you are just scaring yourself more. You can face whatever it turns out to be! You're young and have age and resilience on your side. Good luck and please go to see a doctor soon. Best wishes.View Thread
Thanks for your reply. Actually the sex is not important to me though. What concerns me is that he doesn't touch me in any way other than to just be playful now and the french kissing has totally stopped even though I have asked him if we could do that even just once a week because he is such a good kisser. It honestly isn't about "from the waist down" it is all of the other little things that make me feel wanted like the fondling of breasts or the french kissing. If he wanted just to do those 2 things I would be happy. The heat definately bothers him so we stay in alot in the warmer months and he has the pain/tingling in his left hand/arm at times. To look at him he looks and acts fine, but he is on alot of medications and takes his betaseron injections every other night. I try to do whatever I can for him around the house etc so that he doesn't have to do them and worry. He is so precious. Best wishes Kim.View Thread
Hi, I am new to your site. My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year now. He has MS but is doing very well overall. He told me early on about his condition and what could or couldn't happen as time goes on and I love him dearly and am committed to help him and stay with him no matter what. I would like some advise from someone that has been in a relationship like mine if possible. When we first started dating he was able to get an erection on occasion so in the first few months of dating we were able to have sex about 4 times total. During that time frame he was romantic in other ways such as french kissing, touching etc. For about the last 8 months or so he has not been able to get an erection and the physical touching, kissing(except for a peck) has all stopped and he treats me more as a playmate or child than a woman. He says that he suppresses urges because he cannot have sex. Is this common that because a man with MS cannot have sex that all intimacy stops? I have tried to ask him if he still finds me attractive etc and he says yes, but it is just a little hard to deal with sometimes, especially so early on. I don't need to sex if he can't do it, I love him for who he is, I would just still like to be treated like a woman on occasion. Can anyone explain how this works to me. I'm sure that it will get easier as time goes on, I am just trying to understand and take it all in right now. Thanks and I wish all of you with MS well as I see what it can do to him and it breaks my heart.View Thread
