Someone mentioned on this site that she startles easily. Well I'll be ding danged if I don't jump over all loud &/or shap unexpected noises when before I didn't usually.

MS symptom?


Or just because someone had said so, I adopted it for myself?



my neuro said it was because of the ms.

i am severly startled all the time, about any loud, sudden noise like a dog bark or a shutting cabinet door. i even jump when my husband farts, lol!

i might have made the post you're talking about or either responded to one like it before. i don't remember.

I missed the post you are speaking of, but I have noticed that I do this sometimes. It's not all the time for me... I seem to have periods when it is really bad and then it goes away for a while.

lol i startle so easily, it's from over active reflexes, which is from demyelination, its like when you are supposed to have a small reaction, your body jumps into OHMYGOSHWHATHAPPENED mode instead lol


Yeah, that's me too.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Support from family

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
