100 Degrees and Fatigue!

I got back last week from a vacation in Breckenridge, CO. For those of you around the world, Breckenridge is in the Rocky Mountains. The elevation is 9000+ feet (2700+ meters for everyone but us in the US :p). The average temp was a nice 72 degrees F during the day. I felt great! I had virtually no fatigue and even played golf 3 days in a row.

As with all good things, my trip ...

DNA Vaccine for MS

Tonight on the 5:30 pm Canadian Global TV national news, they had a very brief story about DNA being used in a vaccine to treat MS.

The story, which lasted all of about 20 seconds, stated that Phase II trials of this vaccine reduced brain lesions, (where have we heard that before?!) showed promise and the company was going to likely do Phase III trials. They didn't even mention the pharmaceutical company involved.

That's all ...

Combination therapy of Interferon+Copaxone

This study included 83 MS patients that where treated with either Interferon or Copaxone. Due to worsening 21 of them switched to a combined therapy for 16-24 months.
Apart from high perceived psychological impact in the combination group, no other significant differences between treatments were found.

3 years follow up Mitoxantrone

In 304 active RRMS or progressive MS patients, Mitoxantrone stabilised the dissease course for two years after Mitoxantrone discontinuation.
After that, people who did not get other dissease modifying drugs (Interferon / Copaxone) deteriorated.

Find the abstract here.

Kaleidascope/blind spot in right eye

I'm 11 weeks pregnant and have been doing great so far, MS-wise.

Just noticed with shock that I can't see properly in my right eye.
At first I thought I'd looked at something that had dazzled my eye, then I realised the vision is gone in a small central spot.
Then all around the spot it's gone like a moving kaleidascope.....very exciting altogether 8O (not!).

Now ...
