Hi all, had a stressful few days and am wondering if the tingling in my face And right side heaviness will just be a bit of exaggerated old symptoms. This Is what I’m hoping you will say as since starting Rebif I haven’t really had Anything going on. All input and experience welcome. Thanks Sonia x

Hi Sonia

It may well be related to the stress - I know I feel weaker when I’m stressed, so it wouldn’t surprise me. Things like meditation can help with stress. I took part in a study last year that was funded by the MS Society into the effects of mindfulness, and I found it really helpful. I get less stressed now - if something stressful happens I find it much easier to calm down. If you’re interested in knowing more about it, send me a message and I’ll send you some links that might help.
