This is to share what I have been told by the doctor as well about MS

I have been suffering from it for the past year. on top of what we all know about it Dr explained that my emotional health is part of it.
Apparently I went through an extremely sad period of my life last year,
Where I lost confidence and hope in people. During this time i lost a massive amount of weight and was hardly able to sleep. I was screaming at night and in such a state. AT that stage I suffered from numb hands and toes along with blurred visions but was treating each separately
till I was diagnosed with MS it took a while to get better, however this time of the year reminds me of this sad part of my life and i started to suffer from multiple attacks .
What i was surprised to learn is, YES we need to take care of our emotions cause believe it or not it either help you to progress or it might hinder the progress.


wishing the best for ALL

Emotions DO take a huge part in all ilness....we know that.
Have you tried therapy or even better an M>S> support group?
Do you have a goog, understanding doctor?

Very interesting, but the statement:

"...However by synthesising proteins from the sheaths in a lab, and then injecting them into the blood stream at increasing doses, the body begins to learn that they are safe...."

Sounds like Copaxone or glatiramer acetate? It injects the 3 main components of myelin into the body to train white blood cells, and possibly act as a decoy. Perhaps they have perfected it by adding more proteins to the 3 Copaxone uses? Or using the exact ones in a persons body?

It makes sense that the 30% efficacy Copaxone offers could be greatly increased by making the "potion" more potent. Also they say Copaxone becomes more effective the longer a person is on it, which would fit with the allergy analogy. I will definitely be watching this...

Copaxone doesn't use any myelin proteins. It uses synthetic peptides composed of 4 amino acids. From Copaxone's prescribing information...

    11 DESCRIPTION
    Glatiramer acetate, the active ingredient of COPAXONE, consists of the acetate salts of synthetic polypeptides, containing four naturally occurring amino acids: L-glutamic acid, L-alanine, L-tyrosine, and L-lysine with an average molar fraction of 0.141, 0.427, 0.095, and 0.338, respectively. The average molecular weight of glatiramer acetate is 5,000 – 9,000 daltons. Glatiramer Acetate is identified by specific antibodies. Chemically, glatiramer acetate is designated L-glutamic acid polymer with L-alanine,
    L-lysine and L-tyrosine, acetate (salt). Its structural formula is:

    (Glu, Ala, Lys, Tyr)x • xCH3COOH
    (C5H9NO4 • C3H7NO2 • C6H14N2O2 • C9H11NO3)x • xC2H4O2

I did not say it was made of myelin proteins, but it is made of four amino acids (I thought 3) found in myelin basic protein, as you listed glutamic acid, lysine, alanine, and tyrosine. It is suspected this mimics myelin basic protein and may work as a decoy for the immune system.
