HHV6 versus MS symptoms (stop Tecfidera???)

I am writing for advice for a friend. Thank you in advance for any input.

After taking Tecfidera for 2 months, she has symptoms (including double vision, dizziness, and lack of coordination) for about 4 days that are slowly getting worse. The doctor ordered a test for several viruses, and human herpes virus 6 (HHV6) showed significant elevation by IgG. She is now not sure if her symptoms are MS related or HHV6 related. If ...

Multiple Sclerosis-Lets get physical

MS is due to vibration of chains of magnetite. These stand in upright masses of deposit on the blood brain barrier at one point, held by the Earths magnetic field at night during sleep. Vibration only occurs when the mass of a deposit resonates with the very small electromagnetic fields that surround us all the time. The majority of these are at 50Hz, 60Hz in the USA.

Crushing fatigue... help!

Hi there,

It's been a while since I've posted here. I've been struggling with extreme fatigue for a while now. My neuro put me on modafinil, but I did not react well to it at all.

Although it did help with the lassitude, I decided that debilitating fatigue is far better than debilitating headaches, and I stopped taking it. The ...

Direct nerve stimulation can help some MS symptoms

Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over the right parietal cortex can help improve reaction times in visual vigilance tests but not subjective feelings of fatigue for people with multiple sclerosis, according to the results of a recent study. Conducted by Katrin Hanken of the Department of Psychology at Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg in Germany, and colleagues, the study was published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology in September 2016...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/direct-nerve-stimulation-can-help-some-ms-symptoms-271016
