Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Hello all,

I'd like to wish each and every one of you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year - and a huge thank you for making our forum the friendly, informative, and incredibly useful space that it is!

Please note that on 24th December the MS Helpline will close at 5pm for the Christmas break. We will re-open on 2nd January 2020 at 9am and will respond to your enquiry within 5 working days of re-opening. If you need a faster response please call our Freephone number 0808 800 8000 from 9am on 2nd January.

Information about MS is available on our website:

Moderators will be checking in on the forum sporadically over the this period but if you need to speak to someone regarding a medical matter and you live in England or Scotland, you’ll need to call the NHS on 111, for Wales, you can dial 0845 4647 and for Northern Ireland you can contact your GP surgery directly.

The Samaritans can also be contacted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Their telephone number for those living in the UK is 116 123. Alternatively, you can email the Samaritans at

Wishing everybody a lovely Christmas and see you on the boards in 2020.
