Hello Mort ...
Sorry to hear of your aches and pains - it would be a good idea to see your GP to discuss the way forward now you have been properley diagnosed.  Is there such a thing as MS nurses, you know like McMillian nurses for cancer sufferers ?   It seems to me you need a specialist on your side to advise you etc.    Glad to hear Mum's toe is healing up.   And take it easy, don't be a bull in a China shop as they say, go slowly slowly, theres no rush !!    
Take care - Luv Jaynee x

No Mort, it does not sound self-pitying. You are simply telling the truth. Well done for getting the decorations down and hope your aches and pains are getting a little better.  Good luck with the doctor, hope you get the help you need medicine wise.

I don't think for one moment that anything you wrote sounded "self pitying". Pain is horrendous and when it interferes with our everyday life to the extent that you are dealing with, then my heart goes out to you. I hope the doc can help to alleviate this somewhat for you, They say water treatments are good to help the "back" might be worth checking out. I struggle to get up every single morning so I totally sympathise.Take Care. Love Pam xx
