    One sided PLS?

    Has anyone heard of just one sided pls? My loved one's weakness with sensation intact has been in the left arm and left leg since 2017. Just wondering with those diagnosed with PLS, how common is it to be one sided, just the arm and leg of that side. Thanks!

    Pls?

    He's worried. It's part of his nature. I'm not there. I'm not sure if it's better or worse as I suffer from anxiety and depression. Pills help some. Anyway, thanks. I shall try.

    Pls?

    I guess my concern is hearing some people here say they or someone they know improved their functioning muscles to compensate so it looks like improvement when it really isn't or much. You're right tillie, I'm not there which makes it harder since you can't see how or if he's compensated in...

    Thanks Tillie. Week on week he's making some progress in strength, balance and range of motion. Left shoulder not so much since atrophied some. This past weekend bro's report with link to pics in next post. "There's 1 exercise he was able to do for the first time since his big fall back in...

    Pls?

    Bros report today on pop.. His fingers grip pretty well when squeezing. But it's hard to angle the arm to type because his shoulder is frozen and his elbow too. But now I can feel his arm is getting less stiff. Which means his rang of motion is coming back. He can rest his hand easily on his...

    Bros latest message followed by my last attempt to educate. I'm done with it. I pray the improvements he's making points away from nmd. "Hey Sis, hope you are doing okay. Thanks for the tip on the potassium magnesium. You know he likes vitamins. Dad's walking much better. The more he exercises...

    Pls?

    Bro doesn't entertain the possibility of pls. I've given him cases from the boards but he is focusing on dad making progress, which he slowly is. I sent him 1 final explanation to his latest response. I'm starting to agree with Laurie that it could be worse on his naturally negative depressive...

    Dad is pretty set and stubborn to both of us.

    Pls?

    Forgot to say, neither one of us have much influence. Bro can say what he thinks but doesn't listen to either one of us much. He's pretty set and stubborn

    Pls?

    After a heated convo in June about 2nd opinion with a nmd doc, I let it go. He had an appt for 7/5 and cancelled. Too much for him to deal. If he regresses then I'll insist but he's a half glass empty guy all his life so waiting and seeing is it. I tread on egg shells when I talk to him...

    Pls?

    More from bro.. Hey Sis, I know it's impossible for you to see because you're not here, regarding Dad's progress. The day that he got dizzy in the garage was the day he didn't drink water throughout the day. It was the hottest day of the year. Dad knows this is the reason it happened too. His...

    Pls?

    So when he's feeling down just say keep doing what you're doing? He's not a quitter but at times I worry it will get to him. Bro is in denial other than it's nerve issues. All his sensation is intact with no numbness, tingling or pain except when is big toe cramps up. What do I say? I just keep...

    Pls?

    Thanks laurie. I'm disabled so don't travel. He's 9 hours away and I can't fly. When he gets down what do I say? Tonight his goal is to ditch the cane. I didn't say anything even though safety wise not good idea. He's determined to beat this and none of us want to say anything possibly negative...
