Free Service For Any MS Patient

My name is Ben Chappell, and I am currently researching possible new treatments for multiple sclerosis patients. My Dad was diagnosed with a condition similar to MS several years ago, and since I have been interested in bettering the treatment available for MS patients.

Aspirin as treatment for women with PMS psuedoexacerbations

Hi -

I am not sure what forum to post this but I came across an article about a study of 3 women with MS who were treated successfully with aspirin. They took (650mg) twice a day for 12 days and it stopped their fatigue and other MS exacerbations in all 3 women.

I am very excited about this because every month it has been getting worse to the point that I feel like I ...

MS Symptoms

I apologize for probably being one of many asking these same questions but whatever I have has slowly debilitated my life. I am trying to find out if anyone here has symptoms such as these.

Can symptoms in head be due to MS, with a clear brain MRI?

Hi,
Quick question. Could symptoms in the head (double vision with headache, random tingling sensations, waking one night with one side of the head and scalp numb, along with the ear, with a hearing loss as well) still be due to MS even if I've had a clear Brain MRI? Would lesions on the upper cervical cause the symptoms I describe, or am I barking up the wrong tree looking for my symptoms to be ...
