Hey Everyone
I guess i have nothing to complain about compared to so many here, but things have become so weird. I feel like one of those hairless little dogs that sit and jitter all the time...sneezing and jittering...that's me. Yes, allergies, but that's not the morphing i speak of. This darn jerking and jumping...the stupid things i say...when i KNOW i mean to say something else. I told my daughter to turn off the a.c. about four times today...it's almost 100 degrees here...WHY would i do that??? Because i meant to tell her to turn off the light. My face has become very talented lately. It can do jumps and twists that i never knew possible. U remember the bewitched nose twitch??? Well my nose did that today. I'd be proud and impressed if it hadn't shocked me so much! My memory is rotten lately. I guess the up side of that is that i get to experience telling the same story to the same people over and over again...and never know i've been down that road already! U remember that buzzing/vibrating feeling some here speak of? Well i've felt that a few times in my hands and such...but now that's gotten worse. Not so bad that i feel i need to call my doc, but i do wonder if i'm gonna vibrate myself off the couch sometimes. (joking!) So, u add the jittery jerking, vibrating, speaking of stupid stuff and repeating it because i don't remember having already said the stupid stuff...and there u have it...I'VE MORPHED!!!  Geez....i sure hope this is reversible. sad

Hi Rhonda,
I am so sorry you are having all this weird stuff! I'm glad you have your appt. next week, Dr. Parker should be able to tell you something as well as all the tests their running. Are you keeping a daily log? Be sure to!

Take care, you're in my thoughts and prayers!

I feel your pain. I have all the twitiching and the memory *stuff. Is it reversable... I can't remeber what my doc told me. lol jk. I too enjoy the pleasure of telling the same story over and over AND OVER again to the same people, and NEVER knowing that I said it already! My significant other handles it very well. He sits there and he smiles and I swear it's like he is totally interested in what I have to say... Then he breaks the news, I already told him... I am in shock! I swear he reacted better the second time, even though I have ZERO memory of the first time. Then he tells me this is the third or 4th time I have said the same story... My mother and siblings (outside the home) aren't so kind. They think I am patronizing them. An innocent question or statment can come across badly when repeatedly stated..

Rhonda- YOU have described MY life perfectly as it has been since March or so. I went and saw my neuro- she confirmed it, and I was started on Aricept. If it works are not, it is really hard to say. I think it does, but then can I trust my memory to say that? I dunno.

Without a fresh MRI in hand, my neuro speculated that I am having some brain atrophy caused by the MS lesions. uhm, I try not to think about that... Let me know what your neuro has to say! I like to hear what is being done or said for others!

Good Luck to You,
