Dear Friends,

I was told that my initial symptoms (every conceivable & awful pain sensation in my feet with numbness & body fatigue) was due to diabetes which caused peripheral neuropathy.

Never-ending Beginning...

I was diagnosed with MS in January of 2015, after having beginning symptoms starting at the end of October 2014. I began Gilenya. I am not even sure exactly how many lesions were on that first MRI, however I did read the report in August of 2015. That MRI had over 20+ lesions, meaning way too many to count. I'm unable to have steroids, my body can't handle them, so I have to heal naturally, ...

b) does it look like snake-oil or a worthwhile thing?

...

tongue device for balance

The company that inherited the idea for using a tongue output device from Paul Bach-y-Rita now has permission from the FDA to sell a similar device so that blind people can see using their tongues. But they did not prove their balance device works to the satisfaction of the FDA. Some nay-sayers posted on facebook about it and that was probably enough to kill the deal. The irony is that it was the balance device ...

Question about MS Symptoms: Specifically Numbness

Now i've had MRI's in the long past, but I seem to get numbness in my limbs especially when sitting or compression: Noones suspected MS, but this is more of a question of symptoms.

Specifically with any type of neurpathy (Such as numbness).

With MS: Would the numbness be constant? I mean it's from a lesion, so wouldn't you have it ALL the time rather than just specific times during the day (For me it's ...
