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

Buy or rent

Hey all-

This isn't as a serious as some questions, but still was wondering if anyone had any opinions.

I had my single MS attack approximately 3 years ago. It took about 18 months to recover and my symptoms are currently relatively mild. At the time of the attack, I was close to finishing up my schooling and after a break, was able to get back on track. If MS was not a factor, I'd ...

Blood Work A-OK

Hi all-
big relief. Jeff's blood work ALL came back normal. Looks like petechiae on legs was part of an allergic reaction to the gadolinium, but did not affect him otherwise. His spots are turning brownish now, and fading, and leg pain is reduced.

Apparently this is a side effect for some folks. Who knew? Guess we do now.
:)
thanks!
a relieved cheerleader.

dysesthesia

I just found out today this is the name for very bothersome burning, freezing and stabbing pains in hands and right arm. They call it "tactile hallucination", but to me it is very real and painful and upsetting. I've tried Neurontin and Lyrica and both seemed to work initially, but then stopped working. Have had this since November, 2007. Does anyone have any advice, any recommendations, know of anything that eased the "discomfort"? Many thanks, ...

Impaired Renal function in patients with progressive MS

http://www.neurology.org/cgi/content/ab ... 59/11/1799

I would like to suggest that MS patients make sure their glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is satisfactory to excrete gadolinium dye used in MRIs, BEFORE they have an MRI with enhancement.

Since kidney disease is often not diagnosed until it is very far along, a slightly compromised system could be affected by gadolinium. A simple renal panel test will give you an idea. We'll have my ...

I'm so upset right now

....and just need to vent to my friends on this website.

I was just approached (or should I say confronted) at the grocery store by this woman who asked "are you REALLY handicapped?" (because I parked in the handicapped parking)

My response was "well yes, I have multiple sclerosis...and what is your problem, are you just rude?" She responded..."really?" and my response was "REALLY!"

WTF, where do these people get off?

Thanks for listening.

Does she really have MS?

I'm sorry to bring this subject to this site but I have questions that I need some help with. Long story short, I've dated a woman for 6 years and three years ago she told me she had MS while we were in the middle of having some relationship problems. Since that day I'm having some trouble understanding why she would tell me this at that time. She has no answer for me when I ...

New Drug Protects Nerve Cells From Damage In Mice
ScienceDaily (Mar. 13, 2008) —

Individuals with multiple sclerosis develop progressive neurological disability that is thought to be caused by degradation of nerve cells. A new study has characterized an agent that protected nerve cells from damage in culture and markedly reduced disease progression in a mouse model of MS.

The authors of the study therefore suggested that agents similar to ...
