     Was wondering.....   I have been sick for 2 weeks.  Today its gotton worse.  Weird thing is my family isn't getting it.  Has anyone here been sick by yourself?  Just fyi, has not been officially diagnosed yet.  Mostly is has been a cold, but today, fever chills and left side of face numb, right arm tingly, and left heel and knee numb.  I have already done a stroke assesment on myself and im fine.  There are way more symptoms than that, but those are the bothersome ones.  It sounds like im complaining......LOL  Oh BTW, My sister had to go in for an emergency MRI......She was having major vertigo and fell hitting her face, well MRI came back as indicative of MS.  Talk about wierd.  ANy how, hope all are doing well, I'm gonna just lye in bed all day and rest.  Where getting 2+ feet of snow outside, no need to go anywheres, or do anything.

Hey Bonnie,
So sorry you're not feeling well. I know I get sick more often than anyone in my family, seems to be more upper resportory than anything else. Have you seen a Dr or Neuro? If not I would def make an appt to see what's going on with you. Sorry I don't have anymore info to give you but I'm sure others will be along soon.

Try and have a good Valentines Day and let us know how you're doing.

Hi Bonnie,
   I'm sorry you are not feeling well.  If you do have MS though, getting a cold or flu can make MS symptoms more prounounced, even set off a flare sometimes.  I do hope you feel better soon.  I saw you got hit pretty good with the snow, we got hit as well but not near as much as you did.  You're doing the right thing though, stay inside and rest up.
   Sorry to hear about your sister, I hope she didnt hurt herself when she fell?   I hope things work out well for her, will you please let us know?  And you are yourself as well.
   Oh and to answer your question, no don't usually get sick by himself unless its like a sinus infection or something like that.  He actually gets sick less than the rest of us, quite strange indeed.  Take care.

Hey Bonnie

I'm sorry u've been so sick and for so long! I"m not dx'd, so can't speak in regard to someone with ms and freq of being sick, but as someone with symptoms, no, i don't get sick too often. Sinus and colds junk, but nothing really more than that. And i live in a house with three young kids!! I do hope u'll be feeling better soon. I'm sorry to hear of u'r sister...that is freaky! I hope she does well. Has she discussed any meds yet? Take good care of u'rself and feel better soon! Let us know how u'r doing...its really good to see u here!

Went and saw the endo today in regards to my hypothyroid. He said that my thyroid is not causing my symptoms. That was the last of the possibilities that could be causing my symptoms. So now it is off to the MS clinic on March 6th. We shall see. I'm feeling a little better. You all take care. I'm glad the end of limbo land is near, but scared and sad to know what is to come.
