Referred to a Movement Disorder Clinic

I had my follow-up visit with my neurologist today. He was baffled by the intermittent myoclonic jerks that I've had in my torso. He told me that if I wasn't taking gabapentin for the neuralgia, it would probably be much worse. He did a few tests on my arms and legs. One of the tests involved not letting him push my foot down and I was unable to do it. I also couldn't push his ...

Buyer Beware

So I was investigating a new supplement I saw advertised in the coupons from my Sunday paper. It's called Cognium and it's sold by Natrol.

I checked the references. Out of eight ...

EMG and nerve conduction study

Hello. I had a nerve conduction study and EMG done yesterday. Still waiting for the results, but basically, I had these tests done because I have been having numbness and tingling along with spasms in (especially) my right leg. (I also get it in my left leg, but it's not as severe in my left leg as it is in my right.) In addition to this, an MRI recently found a 9 mm enhancing lesion ...

Started Dr. Wheldon's therapy 2 months ago, have questions!

Hi all, I've posted in a couple other strings, and am so encouraged by so much positive energy here, and success. I started Dr. Wheldon's protocol 2 months ago, and am starting month three, and I have a few questions I would be grateful if anyone can answer for me.

(1) I know Sarah took Roxithromycin 150mg 2x per day, but Dr. Wheldon recommends Azithromycin 250mg 3x per week. Why Azith over Roxith? And why ...

Are there other options besides MS?

Hi All,

The intensity increased slightly on all areas over the last 6 months and the facial numbness spread across the left side of my head. I can pretty much draw a line down the middle of my head and ...
