Are there indicators for a good or bad disease course?

Hi Guys,

Because i'm obsessed with ms and what may happen in the future i have been wondering if anyone knows if there is anything that may indicate what disease course you may have.

I have read in the past that what happens in the first 5 years may be an indicator of what your ms may do in the future, if it's going to be mild or more aggressive.

If ms is so unpredictable ...

MRI of the Spine

Hello to all-

I'm due for another MRI...the majority of my lesions were in my brain in my previous MRIs, yet I had a single one in my spine. My neuro told me that another MRI of the spine was not necessary due to the lack of newer clinical signs related to it. I was wondering if anyone had a similar experience.

thanks in advance,

Economic meltdown effects on MS treatments?

I have no idea, but i think it naive not to think the current climate will not have any effect on MS treatments. I am thinking people will be more restrained with investing in medical treatments in the pipeline that MAY turn out big later.

Amitriptyline wearing off after only 6 wks....?

Hi all
had a nasty relapse about 7 weeks ago. Severe fatigue for 3 weeks, and a huge increase in neurological pain - you know the crawling, itching, pricking, nagging, gnawing horrible pain. It was all down my right side - just my right side - and I had twitching too so I wasn't sleeping.

The neurology clinic's nurse sent me a script for very low dose Amitriptyline (I think it's called Elavil in some ...

25-foot walk rules question, is jogging allowed?

So here's the shocker of the week.

Last night Kim "reacted" to my racing around before bed (turning off the lights and locking the doors, etc.) by racing me to the stairs. Kim was just trying to be faster than me, but without thinking about it, she ran. I saw her run. You could call it a light jog, but for the briefest of moments, she was completely airborne!

I looked at her in shock ...
