Slowly Recovering and BORED !!!!!

Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly begins to attack itself. Does that means multiple sclerosis will give me super-immunity? Heck NO. The immune system in patients with MS produces antibodies that destroy this protective myelin layer.

When getting ill like a cold, more often than not, people with MS are to get plenty of rest and drink lots of fluids. This is what I did in the past few days. I was realy bored and I really wished I went to work because I have work to do. I rested and feeling better. I have learned from the past that if I don't rest, I wound up getting bronchitis.

Why is it important? I have learned that viral infections, such as colds, could trigger relapses of MS which have happened to me in the past.

I was dignosed with Autoimmune Disease two years ago. I have been experiecing some stiffness in the back of my legs sometimes. Walking up the hill and running at begining were so difficult.

What symptons did you have when you were dignosed with MS.
