Dr. Lava is in client most of the week, and does set time aside on Friday's to answer posts here. I will send your post to him, incase he has an extra few minutes and can answer. Hopefully some of the other members here, who are very much experts in living with MS can jump in and help you a bit!
Picking a doctor is difficult. Figuring out which one your insurance covers, hoping you get one that will listen. But when you have a chronic illness, it's even more difficult. This doctor is someone you want to have a good relationship with and that you can rely on.
What are your requirements for a doctor, and how did you find yours?View Thread
We've all had those moments where we don't feel so well, and company stops by. Or plans have been made, yet we just don't feel like going out.

I have a friend that calls this faking the joy. Have you ever had those moments when you'd really rather just stay home close the door, turn off the phone and keep to yourself? How do you get through those days when you have to keep going even though you just don't feel like it?View Thread
Great advice, I always say education is so important. I remember my grandmothers struggles with MS, and what made it worse in the beginning was the not knowing. Do you have any thoughts on questions for someone who is newly diagnosed that would be helpful for them to ask their doctor?
It's National Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Month. What advice would you give newly diagnosed patients with MS? What questions would you have them ask their doctor regarding MS? What is one piece of advice you wish someone would have shared with you, when you were newly diagnosed?

I am unsure myself from the video, I am going to ask one of the doctors on board to see if they know. From what I got from the video I think the improvement of the MS symptom helped the depression, but I really can't say that for sure. I'll send our doctors your question and hopefully one of them will answer for us.
