@dawn.flach‍ if you haven't taken any medication for your MS, then you aren't immunosuppressed. You only have to worry about immunosuppession if you are currently medicated.

I have been laid off for a little over a week  I've stayed home as the order to do so, only going out as needed but Even though  I have MS, I still wonder deep inside if know matter  what we have is there any real (either way) difference if we are anymore suspectable to the virus??  Don't know if anyone can answer that!? I don't have any other health condition, so just taking care of myself  & pray for all of us in this situation  & that this will be over soon

@Elk217015‍ I consulted my neurologist regarding this. If you are on, or have taken any taken any type of immunosuppressant drug course, you are considered high risk to contract coronavirus through community spread, especially since carriers can be asymotomatic for weeks and still spread the virus. I still go out to do obtain necessary supplies, but EVERYTHING is disinfected before it comes in our home with wipes and/or spray. Just be smart if you decide to go out.

Hi, Im new to Carenity but was intriqued by this topic. Intriqued bc I am to be tested in the am. Home health nurses believe I have it and have asking all day for me to go to er. I havent bc my elderly mother lives with me but will not just drop me off.We are quaranteened away from each other but I dont think its enough.I have an appt at a drive through site in the am but they still take 48 hours to tell you. My fever is up to 101 but i feel like an elephant is sitting on my chest. We have done all of the right things but its still prowling at my door.I would not wish this on my absolute worst enemy. I was just curious if there have been any others with it and did they survive. I have 9 autoimmune disorders and on Ocrevus and Arava daily. Thank you for any imput.

I'm so sorry to hear this!  I hope you get the treatment  you need & take care of yourself. I am praying for you I don't know anyone personally that has this  but I  have been laid off for over a week  & with multiple  sclerosis  It's hard to know even what would happen with anyone like you/me!  I have been at home & inside, I'm doing well but it's just a horrible  thing.

I'm hoping to hear from anyone with MS who's had the corona virus and survived! I'm completely convinced that if I get it, I'll just die.    

I'm 70, was diagnosed with RRMS at 40, and have slipped into SPMS within the last year or two.  Hoping to hear from anyone with MS who lived through COVID19.   Carolyn

Looks like some of us are just waiting to hear from another MS patient who has survived COVID 19.

It will come. Eventually we will hear from someone. Until then, it's good to be alive and have others to talk to and spend the day with,     Carolyn
