Dr. Patricia Farrell has been a caring, compassionate expert offering sound advice with our Anxiety & Panic Community for many years.
She says "Providing self-help information to people with either psychological difficulties or medical illnesses has always been the reason I write.
This book came about as the result of my being asked to write one specifically for persons with MS who, because of the seeming psychological problems of the illness, were blaming themselves.
Writing it and interviewing both persons with MS and professionals working in the field was extremely rewarding and each person opened a new understanding for me and affirmed the fact that, indeed, this book needed to be written."
I came across this is my many internet searches. I definitely think it would be helpful for those looking to gauge their current symptoms to see if it is time to seek out consultation. Check it outView Thread
Have any of you heard of the DreaMS study? It's a clinical research study for an investigational oral drug for RRMS. The study started already but they still need people to take part. The website for the study is http://bit.ly/cuShlj. I work for the company that developed the website and am helping the pharmaceutical sponsor raise awareness about the study.View Thread
Had MS since 1991. Well managed by neurologist and copaxone. Before then and now I have regular runny nose. Blow my nose frequently but even blowing doesn't solve running. Sometimes I'm woken up at night with running. I simply don't get a clear clean nose. Mucus is clear. I don't think sinuses are pressured. I don't know if I have allergies. No one in family is allergic to anything. Haven't told doctor about symptoms because it seems silly & I should be able to handle. What's going on & is there anything safe to help me? Thanks guys.View Thread

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclersis in September 2009. My Neurologist put me on that medication, I've been on it since. I just recently started getting Allergic reactions to that medication just below my belly and on my legs. My nurse practioner placed me on Benedryl to relieve some of the itching and redness. It doesn't seem to be working what do I do? JuliaView Thread
I was diagnosed with RRMS in 9/02 and later with fibromyalgia or what I think is more likely CMP (chronic myofascial pain) a couple of years later when my doctors felt the pain I was experiencing could be separate from MS. I have neuralgia as well as muscle and joint pain. I have found the book listed to be helpful, as well as the related advocate, and trigger point books.View Thread
