If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Rebif and Red Spots

I have been on Rebif for about 2 years now. I didn't have any problems in the beginning, but my injection site reactions are not fun here lately. I am covered in red circles from every injection. They aren't painful. Just there. One on my arm was very itchy at first, but otherwise fine. Also, when I give myself the injection, shooting the Rebif in hurts like hell. Not the needle...the actual medication going into ...

Hormone Cycle/MS Self Study

• My first known MS "attack" occured April-May 1980. I was informed of the diagnosis early December 1981. The MRI didn't exist at the time. I was under a Chiropractor's care after a bad fall February 1981, but this was before NUCCA (Upper Cervical) treatments for the Atlas Orthogonal Blood/CSF circulation obstructions had been developed so these Chiropractic treatments didn't prevent the attacks of late 1981 (presuming that they could have - not certain). As ...

Tea and Pesticides

There was a segment on CBC recently that found that certain teas exceeded pesticide limits:

There has also been speculation, but I don't think anything conclusive as to how Pesticides and Toxins can have neurological effects.

Have there been more conclusive studies about pesticides influence in MS?

have we had any discussions on barium?

I saw through the history search that a number of people here have had barium exams. Could there be a risk of exposure that we don't know about?

This is one hypothesis that links MS to barium. It seems that so called MS clusters have occurred in areas with high barium. I know my hometown was a paper town--we had about five or six paper mills. Barium is used to make paper. It's also used ...

Are we too passive?

I watched the documentary "How to Survive a Plague" this week. The film follows the group Act UP, which was an LGBT activist group, from the beginning of the Aids epidemic. I couldn't help but draw parallels to the MS struggle as I watched.

They faced the familiar red tape in Washington, the drug companies dragging their feet, etc. At first, none of the therapies were effective, then some were somewhat effective but disappointing. This ...

More Theory

There are very few constants across everyone with MS. But here are a few…

pwMS have too much histamine in the central spinal fluid.
pwMS have too much saturated fat in plasma (cell membranes).
pwMS have white blood cells targeting myelin.
pwMS have a weak or compromised blood brain barrier.

I believe all 4 are required for Multiple Sclerosis to develop. The excess saturated fat causes an increase in thrombin or coagulation. Histamine combined with ...

Status of nutrition education in medical schools.

On average, students received 23.9 contact hours of nutrition instruction during medical school (range: 2-70 h).

No wonder my doctor didn't want to talk about nutrients. At least she was frank with me about her not knowing about them.
