Still fighting pain, but holding onto hope!

hope 2Happy Monday Y’a’ll! I am still currently battling the pain I have been dealing with for about a week now. For some reason it isn’t letting up. I have been resting and trying to not dwell on it,  but it is still hanging around!  

So what I am dealing with is spasticity in my legs and I guess that is what is going on with my neck and shoulders. I have honestly dealt with leg pain since I was first diagnosed, but this just seems like so more. All doctors will say that heat is bad for MS patients but using a heating pad is all that alleviates my leg pain. I guess I am just unusual. Does a heating pad actually help any of y’a’ll that deal with MS pain?hope 1

I am wondering if it is possible that this is something to do with the weather. I always try to find a common denominator to when my pain seems to  be elevated. Do any of you believe that the weather, even when there isn’t a huge change, impacts MS? I of course already know extreme heat or cold can cause issues to worsen but the weather has been kind of the same here, hot and humid. Although today it is relatively humid and dreary.

As always I want to ask a question to all of you. Whether you battle MS, another chronic disease or  none of the above, what have you noticed that causes pain to elevate or even headaches to be more frequent? I always appreciate your comments and I do respond!

Always, AlyssaHope for cure

  1. Good afternoon dear Alyssa. Of course the weather, as all major natural phenomena, affect the course of a grave neurological disease like yours. And what goes on above our heads too: the astral moveements. Yes, we are only another living species of this planet that have arrogantly detached ourselves from the natural rhythms above and below. Learn those rhythms slowly by paying attention to what worsens or ameliorates your condition. Did you read my wellness blog “The need for yoga” already? Siddharta Gautama , the first Buddha, learned how to live in sync with the rest of Nature. Un baccione. Arrivederci!


  2. Hi! New reader and new blogger here 🙂 I’m sorry to hear that you’re in pain and I hope it gets better! I find myself using a heating pad too to help with my MS symptoms, specifically my back pain. It definitely helps a lot!

    • Oh I am so glad to hear that someone else uses heat. I was starting to think I was just very unusual. I use a heating pad all day long at work. I alternate it between my back and legs. It is amazing! Thank you so much for your comment! And thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement! Take care of yourself!
