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

Started Cytoxan Today

First of six infusions to be given once per month. So far, no adverse effects whatsoever. Hopefully that will continue and I'll actually see some benefits.

Anyone else on here tried Cytoxan other than the Revimmune crew?

Thanks.

10 Deadliest Drugs

http://health.msn.com/health-topics/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100198254

Here we go again! See no. 8 listed in this article...Avonex, Betaseron and Rebif. What does this mean? That if you don't keep up with your labs that it could cause irreversable liver damage? This article doesn't really explain why it is on the 10 Deadliest Drugs list.

Thanks! :(

Question: relapse after infection

Hi guys

I have noticed a number of members mentioning a relapse following an infection - such as tummy bug, 'flu etc.
My question is, in general, how long does it normally take between the illness and the relapse? Does the relapse occur weeks after the illness has resolved, or within a few days? Can it happen just after the illness starts, while you are still sick?

I am getting the drip for three more days. The nurse told me about some side effects but they didn't seem to match some other ones I've read about, so I'm curious to know what your experiences on it were. ...

Impending dx

Tomorrow afternoon I am seeing the neuro. I have not had a dx yet, only docs murmuring that MS is likely. I had a whole bunch of tests in early january and tomorrow I am getting the results ( the joys of the NHS & 3 month waits for appointments).

I am now absolutely terrified. After fighting for a year to be taken seriously by doctors I am now praying that they will tell me ...
