Hi, I'm new to this site, but have been reading the posts on weight gai & MS. I have had MS now for almost16yrs. I have put on 50lbs. during all this time. I have tried, Tops, I exercise at the gym, drink h2o, & have tried every method out there to lose weight to no avail. I am getting so disgusted. I am not on Rebif, or Copaxon, but am on Avonex injections 1 per. week. I can sympathize with everone of you with the same problem. My Dr. just says there is not a "magic" pill to lose weight, but I feel I am doing everything right and nothing is working. I wish someone had an answere as to why I can't lose weight. Nice to hear others have the same problem. Any comments? A.View Thread
Thank you for your reply. I am almost 66 yrs. old. I go to a fitness center 3 x's a week & walk in a mall 2 x's a week, may Dr. says Im very healthy except for my MS, so I guess I should be greatful for that. There's a lot of heart disease in my family, both parents died in their 60's. So I'll just keep plugging away, trying not to give up. This is a crazy disease, never know from one day to the next how we are going to feel, today is a bad day so I guess I just have to lay low. Nice to chat with you. daiseymae (Anna)View Thread
