Reiki

Does anyone do it regularly?

Family and friends are raving about it and keeping suggesting it to me (on the verge of pushing it on me) and I am intrigued. But also nervous about it. I'm not sure if I want someone messing around with my energy/electricity considering I have problems with it already.

I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts on it. :)

Two articles I thought were interesting today, maybe not directly related to MS but enlightening.

Pinworms! for Bob

Hey Bob-
Need your help. My darling son brought home a case of pinworms. (The things children can bring to your life!) Our family doc wants us all to take mebendazole, since we're all showing signs of infection. I won't give any more detail....it's truly disgusting. (We won't know for sure which parasite we have until our, uh, samples are studied, but the doc wanted to get us going in the mean time.)

I mentioned ...

Pain question

I'm sure I'm being really dense but over the week I have started getting really sharp pain in my arm and leg that come for a couple of minutes then go away. It's happening a number of times throughout the day. Is this an MS thing or is my body just crap?

FDA Proposed Off-Label Marketing Rule Changes

I wonder how/if this would impact MS off-label treatments. I would hope some of the chemotherapy drugs would receive more attention and traction as MS treatments.



FDA on Friday proposed new guidelines that would allow pharmaceutical and medical device companies to market their products for off-label uses, the New York Times reports (Harris, New York Times, 2/16). Currently, physicians can prescribe medications and medical devices for off-label uses, but companies cannot market their products for ...

Rebif & shortness of breath

Well, my longtime drug Copaxone stopped working for me last Spring, and I'm now taking Rebif. Trouble is, now I get short of breath very easily (even 1 flight of stairs.) I'm a very fit 41 year-old, I exercise regularly, and eat well. I've been to a pulmonary specialist and all tests came back normal.

Is there anyone out there who's had a similar experience with Rebif? I'm getting ready to ditch this one too, ...
