Need some help please-- new lesions/walking

I've had q series of relapses this summer and am about to start Rituxan. I have a new lesion on my brain and some in my spine.... My walking has gotten much worse. Can I come back from this? Or does having new lesions mean that these new symptoms are here to stay?? I'm so scared. And confused about what this means. I've always thought that once symptoms appear, they stay as I've never really ...

Poisoned by Peroxynitrite.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post and not a topic for those on day 1 learning about MS.

I suffered a severe wound in an industrial accident.
The wound was contaminated by the inocuous chemical Sodium Nitrite.
In an attempt to save me from amputation the wound was washed out with Hydrogen Peroxide during debridement operations.

According to my studies Sodium Nitrite + Hydrogen Peroxide = Peroxynitrite

Peroxynitrite is i understand the cyclic culprit ...

When did the 3T MRI debut?

Random question bc I'm bored. I had a random thought on why there's a helium shortage and upon looking that up they said it's because of mri's! Since helium is needed to cool the magnet. Interesting.

Anyways trying to find out more about mri's, I wanted to know when the 3T model came out, or rather first used but can't find anything. Only that "it's better"

So knowing that many people here have had many ...

An investment company held by MS patients and relative


I have a somehow unconventional idea that I would like to discuss with a broader audience.

It's basically about establishing an investment company that is backed/held by people with MS and their relatives and mainly invests in small companies involved in the development of new therapies.

Formulated as elevator pitch, it could be something like this:
For MS-patients and their relatives
who are dissatisfied with their lack of possibilities to support the development ...

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

I am quite strict and disciplined when it comes to diet and exercise, but I had no idea that the filtered water I was drinking could be a problem for me. Motivated by a recent thread dealing with organic foods, I have begun growing my own veggies using a hydroponic based system (no soil, just water). Many but not of my plants died within a couple of weeks. After numerous tech support calls to the ...

Say NO to drugs!?

I am newly diagnosed (last month at age 44) with RRMS. I have always been very active, exercised daily and ate a healthy diet. I am having a hard time considering any of these meds for MS. I am sure I have had this disease for years and just pushed through. Am I wrong for not wanting to take it? Are you not taking meds and able to work it out with diet and exercise ...

Study opens new doors to neuropathic pain treatment research

Chronic pain results from disease or trauma to the nervous system. Damaged nerve fibres with heightened responses to normal stimuli send incorrect messages to pain centres in the brain. This phenomenon, called "peripheral and central sensitization" is one of the key mechanisms involved in the condition which touches people with diabetes, cancer, and those living with multiple sclerosis...
