More about heat and MS

We are thrilled to be able to partner with ThermApparel again this year for this cooling gear giveaway. While many people right now are longing for the sunshine, warmth, and fun vacations of summer, a lot of people with MS are basking in the cold, since summer can be the most challenging time of year for them. Heat can really exacerbate MS symptoms and trigger relapses. On top of an increase in physical symptoms, the summer can also take an emotional toll as many are forced to stay indoors and miss out on social events and activities with others. We hope you will enter to win above and wish all entrants the best of luck!

    How about asking manufacturers to begin making the cooling apparatus in more colors, such as yellow or red, blue, etc, because more often than not, they’re going to show, and if it’s colorful, it looks less orthopedic.

    Hi! After entering my email, I received an auto-responder that I was already subscribed (of course). Are current subscribers not eligible for this contest? That would be awfully disappointing, as I, like many others, think winning a device like this could be absolutely life-changing (I often work outdoors in the summer, and it’s becoming near-impossible to do so any longer), so it would be very sad to be ineligible simply for having already subscribed…

    Hi @kristaljk, thank you for your email! Yes, our email subscribers are eligible to enter. Entrants who are already subscribed to our email newsletter receive an automated message that they are already on our email list, which I understand is confusing. But don’t worry, if you entered your email into the box at the top of our giveaway page, then you are entered for the giveaway! Sorry for the confusion about that. We’ve entered a disclaimer beneath the box above to explain that a little better and hopefully clear up confusion.

    Thanks again for reaching out. Best of luck to you and please let us know if there’s anything else we can help you with! – Shelby, Team Member

    Well PfP
    I applied in 2009 and I was also denied. Much like John Grisham’s movie The Street Lawyer. The insurance company always denies the first claim hoping for the insured will give up.
    I saw a TV add while watching Judge Judy and called the Social Security disability attorney. I was given an appointment. I took my information and my attorney took it from there. It cost only when they won my claim and it was well worth the effort on their part. The disability was a nice bridge to my social security benefits that took over when I turned 66. I do not know where you live. My attorney was in Eugene. Good luck

    Hello I haven’t been in this site for a long time! I applied for disability last year and have been denied 2x. Now I am waiting for a court date any advice will be appreciated! Ty! P for Positive ❤️❤️

    Hi PfP, are you going to use a disability attorney? If you’ve been denied twice then it might be a good idea.

    The success of these determinations varies so much from state to state. I got my disability approved the very first time. The reasons for this include (but are not limited to) the fact that I had a paper trail of MRIs and other tests, a history of regular neuro appointments, and a neuro that wrote a compelling evaluation for me. Moreover, I was 51. Age does count.

    I don’t know how it will shake out for you, but those things listed above are the basics. I hope you’ll hire legal representation. Since you’ve been denied twice you’ll have back pay coming when you do win your appeal. A chunk of that will go to the attorney. You should be able to discuss these all these issues with them at no charge.

    I wish you luck with your next court date. Please do let us know the result. Thank you for writing about your situation. We do care! –Kim, moderator
