I too have been battling MS since 2002 and I am so glad I can relate to this story line, just a little curious how the story will be similar to others that live with this debilitating disease; like fatigue, memory loss, confusion, difficulty walking and sometimes talking because you can't find the right words to say. I just hope they do it right. ;)

can indeed be a symptom of diabetes, as can passing out.
Could we end up with a wrong diagnosis?? Nikki can't have
a miracle cure. It is just unrealistic. But a wrong
diagnosis could lead to more story lines, including a mal-
practice story.
Just a thought.


I'm not a dr so I don't know for sure, but there are 2 things that are pointing to ms that they said a while back but I'm not sure either are 100%. The vep test which could mean her optic nerve is damaged and the spinal fluid. I don't remember them saying anything about an MRI to show where her lesions are or if she has any. So I guess it's possible. Diabetes is a simple blood test so probably not that.

There is kind of a miracle cure for the moment I think Montel had done. I think people have died from it though. It involves putting a stint in major veins or something like that. I guess if they wanted to kill her off, they could have her get the surgery and have it go wrong.

I sure don't want to see Nikki suffer from MS at all!!It's not great how JFP seems to have such a vendetta against who she hates,and is firing everyone we dearly love!!I don't want to see this play out on Y&R!!We love Niiki and Katherine!!Why can't there be something for them to do without killing them off?!!

I don't hold out any big hope that the MS story line will be realistic, which I'd think would be upsetting to those who are suffering from this horrible disease. I have fibromyalgia and have had to be tested for MS a couple of times just to be on the safe side. And, like fibro, MS doesn't hit everyone the same way. If they do a miracle cure for Nikki because TGVN has money and clout I think it will be a horrible disservice to the real people who are fighting this.
I will say, when they did Jack's addiction to rx pain pills I couldn't watch because it brought back so many painful memories of my late DH - but I think that was due more to the skillful acting of PB than any wonderful writing on the part of the writers.
Guess we will have to wait and see.

All I can say is .... when they do that far away vision and the feeling of falling ... I feel it, as for symptoms so many one can have and not another.

There is no miracle cure.

I'm in Canada and a TV show called W5 aired the story again on Annette Funicello (one of the original Mouseketeers). She has had the disease for over 25 years and she now cannot walk or talk. Her husband found out about this treatment, even though some doctors don't think it has anything to do with MS but the main arteries in her neck on the left side were completely blocked so the blood wasn't flowing from her brain to the body, it was reversing....anyway, the husband thinks he's seen improvements but I don't think its a miracle cure or anything. The poor lady has to have everything done for her and her poor hubby is 81.
I didn't know that Montel had the same thing, I just remember the stories about him smoking dope all the time...
Its a very crippling disease but if you get the right diagnosis and medication in time, I think it can slow the progression....

It does seem that it was very crippling for Annette!And Terri Garr(from Sonny and Cher's show,Oh God,and other films),has it,and she's been on local talk shows for awhile talking about it,not lately though!!They are treating Nikki like a baby already!!I don't see her being on much longer,do you?
