stacool vest ***DO NOT BUY****

I purchased a Stacool vest to help me get outside this summer.

It seemed like a good idea on paper. In the ad it claims to be 'the most lightweight, comfortable, cooling system available,' and 'each lightweight vest offers up to three hours of cooling per ThermoPak set.'

First of all the vest holds 4 synthetic ice packs, (two for the front, and two for the back), and these packs are ...

head pain

Do any of you have head pain? I can't call it a headache, as I think they 'pound'. This is a pain that hits fast and hard and covers my entire head. Some times it only lasts a few minutes and other times I take something for it. It tends to hits at night or quickly after waking up.

Weight gain & numbness

Has anyone else gained weight? I've been on it for almost a month and gained 3lbs while eating less. And changing my diet. I've eliminated, gluten, sugar and all processed foods.

As it would ...

Side effects from Rituxan?

I am switching from Tecfidera to Rituxan, due to several new brain & spinal cord lesions despite being on Tecfidera for 13 months. I am wondering about possible side effects. My neuro seems to think since it is such an infrequent, low dose I may not experience too many ill effects. Did anyone have any hair loss or hormonal changes for women? Hearing your personal experiences is always more valuable than reading the FDA approved ...

PML Cases now at 475

The number of Tysabri related PML cases rose by 3 in the past month to 475. Don't know if this means they are screening Tysabri users better before starting on the drug or if fewer patients are using Tysabri.

Massage therapy can alleviate symptoms of multiple sclerosis

An estimated 2.3 million people worldwide live with multiple sclerosis (MS) each day, a debilitating disease that can often cause severe pain, muscle spasms, poor circulation, anxiety, stress and clinical depression. Although not a substitute for regular MS treatment, massage therapy is an effective, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) that can alleviate such symptoms and in turn, help to pacify the disease...
