On behalf of gkuhs he would like to see what everyone else does for their fatigue, soreness and tingling (tingling in his legs). I'm not really familiar with MS, but I put my foot down and told him to lay down for a half hour. So does anyone have any other ideas besides rest? We prefer natural treatment first, who doesnt though lol. And the symptoms are getting worse than normal so I'm about ready to pull him by the ear to the doctor's office. He hates doctors LOL Any advise is much appreciated by us.

There are a few things my doctors are trying to help with my fatigue. One is a CPAP machine. I did a couple sleep studies that showed I had sleep apnea. I do feel much more rested in the mornings... not that I can do anything with that doing any activities that make my body heat up makes everything hurt more. But, if I'm staying in an air conditioned place out of the sun, it's much better.

Also, I give myself B-12 and testosterone injections. That's due to blood work showing my levels are low, and this is supposed to make me feel more energetic. I'm still at low doses so I haven't really noticed a change yet.

Those are "natural" treatments, right? I hope that helps! Get him to the doctor! I don't like hospitals, but the more the doctor knows, the better he can get treated.

Thank you, CCbrunk! Now to convince a stubborn hard headed don't want to go to the doctor man to go... ideas? I swear it took me 3 days convince him when he had chest pain to get his tush to the doctor. It got so bad, I ended up learning how to shift with a stick (could someone convince him automatic cars are better lol). He can't stand doctors and say they don't know anything. He hates even waiting in the dr office and gets really ansy.

Well convincing someone that dont like Dr's is tough to do. I used to be like that, but not being able to walk/sit without pain & fatigue changed that pretty quick.
Mabye you could try the club method like the cave people use to do millions of yrs ago (lol).
As far as the tingiling when i get it in my hands or feet, stepping/walking with bare feet on the floor helps with the foot ones.
With the hands touching a wall or a cool surface seems to work pretty good.

The legs though maybe rub them with an ice pack,but it sounds like it Really shoud be looked at by a Doc.
As far as the automatic being better Im not so sure. If your starter goes in a stick shift you can roll start it, and MPG in a stick is supposed to be better,but those are the only 2 advantages I know of
but Automatics are much better on the knees and legs,
