Hi loretta_marie_pleasance Welcome to the club. I'm intrigued.... how do you milk a thistle ? I'm Scottish and was brought up to believe that we used them to stop the English from sneaking up on us.😄 Feel free to ask anything you like we're all very friendly. The rest of the gang will be along soon to say hi once their out of bed. I'm on Tec also, like you not had any major probs. Greetings Happy trails.

Hello highlander Jokes aside have u tried milk thistle? I wouldn’t be out of bed if it wasn’t for a school run to do lol Is there an app for this site ? Or do I have to keep finding the link on face book ? Thanks

Hi again @loretta_marie_pleasance. Not that I'm aware of, I don't use FB. I just use shift.ms in my browser on my phone. And really...it's real what is it? And you would have got away with a lay in if it wasn't for those pesky kids 😊

Hi @loretta_marie_pleasance and welcome. It's always good to have a reason to get out of bed. Be it a school run or in my case, my bladder. There's a lot of life that goes on outside our beds. 😉 There isn't an app for Shift.MS. It's been designed to work on all platforms. Are you able to create a bookmark in your browser?

@Loretta_Marie_Pleasance

@loretta_marie_pleasance Just looked it up, its also called Silybum Marianas you've got to take your hat off to the people who named it or truth be told I'm still a kid at heart and giggle at funky names still. No malice intended....Just being silly.

@Loretta_Marie_Pleasance

😂😂 that is funny name I only started taking it as I believe tecfidera can damage your liver I’m a newbie so still learning about MS

@loretta_marie_pleasance No worries. I'm also on Tec have been for about 8 months. I was dx just over a year ago at the tender age of 48 just... with SPMS. Top tip Don't stress it really does make it worse. Easier said than done I know. Hence me being childish at times just makes things a little less daunting. Every one handles it differently but this site is ace, always here to give good advice and banter. If you click on a person's name or picture it opens up their personal profile if they've filed it out. Ask anything you like we'll find an answer some how. Keep smiling.

Hi @loretta_marie_pleasance I'm new her and put meningitis in the search as I'm undiagnosed but wondered if me having meningitis nearly 30 years ago when I was about 17 might have some link to the symptoms I'm experiencing.
