hay fever and relapse?!

Hi @all,

maybe someone has an idea or a similar experience...

Have you ever experienced any connection between allergy (as e.g. hay fever) and relapses?

The phenomenon: my younger sister (dx with MS Nov 2006) has severe hay fever, she always needs antihistamine etc. in spring and summer. Now she has a relapse ( :( ) with changes in sensation in her leg but the strange thing: ...

Support Group?

I want to start by thanking everyone o this site, there is a wealth of information shared, as well as just a good attitude.

I work for the Advocate health System, and am involved in opening an offsite Imediate Med Care place quite close to where I live.
The building has a community room which no one seems to have a use for as yet.

My thought was to start an MS support group for ...

I wake up this morning and my left ear is ringing/roaring like I went to a ...

Flu Symptoms on Avonex

Hi everyone. It's been awhile since I've posted on here. I just started injecting Avonex again after a seven month break (tonight is actually my first night). After two years of injecting, the flu symptoms and mood swings were getting to me so I stopped. Well in that seven month time frame my left foot eventually became completely numb about 95% of the time. My balance is way off and now my right side is ...

question # 1000 it seems like

Of course, since I'm "into" the importance of plasticity, there is also the possibility that her MS and resulting damage continues ominously at a rate in which plasticity is able to it's job and keep her from noticing the damage as it accumulates.

this is so well put bob we are all under attack all the time it's just that when our own bodies can't keep up with the repairs we start to notice ...

Why would you NOT take meds?

Hi Guys,

From reading posts on other ms forums i get the impression that lots of people who are doing well with their ms choose not to take any of the ms meds and some say that they will wait until they "need" them.

I am taking Avonex and i'm well too, i have no symptoms and have only had one sensory flare.
I was under the impression that these meds are designed to be ...
