My husband has been recently diagnosed with MS. It is in its earliest stages and is limited to his neck for the time being. He experiences pain in his neck, near his brain stem, and is usually followed by a severe headache. I am wondering whether heat or cold would be a better way to make hime feel better.View Thread
He has now decided to quit his injections because they make him so sick. His neurologist has moved out of state and he refuses to make time to go to another one. I heard that there is another medication that is taken daily. Are there any side effects that will cause him to be sick with these new meds? His latest MRI showed the same lesion on his neck and 2 in his brain. What do you suggest I tell him to get him back to the doctor?View Thread
