close to a cure?

just a question.. how many of you, honestly, think that one day, hopefully in the not so distant future, there will be a cure for this disease? With all the research with stem cells, do you think that one day it will become the next, say, strep throat where one just takes some pills and is done with it? or am i just hoping for too much? I read an article about some stem cell ...

Etiquette ?? in the Dr office

My nuerologist is sometimes in a wheelchair other times on crutches. This has offten time made me curious. He is a wonderful guy and I like him alot. He has never volunteered what his condition is to me. My question is would it be wrong of me to ask? This doesn't make a difference to me so maybe I shouldn't. It is just something that I have wondered about since my first visit almost two ...

Zoloft & Brain Zaps

I know this might sound crazy (ironic since I'm talking about Zoloft) but here goes anyway. I tried to stop taking my daily Zoloft pill. After about three or four days I began getting these strange sensations in my head. It felt like electrical zaps. After a few weeks I couldn't stand it anymore and started taking the Zoloft again. The zaps went away when I started taking the drug again. What's up with this? ...

Burning mouth

Is driving me crazy! This was almost completely gone during my steroids treatment and a bit after, but it's slowly come back.

Anyone else dealt with burning mouth before? It can be pure agony. I get the burning in the mouth, esp. on my top right side and my cheek feels like it's on fire (on the inside), my tongue feels like a million bees are stinging it, and my lips can feel a slight ...

Burning on base of foot

Hi guys

I just wanted to ask if anyone has found anything which helps with this. Mine seems to be getting worse.

My neuro said it's normal for ms patients, but apart from neuropathic pain killers (gabapentin etc), which have some terrible side effects, nothing else was offered.


Thanks

J.

Choosing a good neurologist?

I just had two MRIs - one that showed a barely perceptible lesion on my cervical spinal cord and another that showed small brain lesions that they say most likely point to MS. The MRI report says the lesions are inactive at this time. Forgive me, I am new to all of this, so I'm not sure if I'm saying this right. Anyway, I have been referred to a neurologist, but how do I know ...

What is unsteadiness when walking?

How do you describe unsteadiness when walking?

Is it a feeling that you are going to fall off, like your balance isn´t right?

Is it a drunk walk?

Or is it just an odd feeling that you feel you are blocking?

It´s really strange whats happening to me because i have this feeling that something is wrong with my walking although i don´t walk drunk or need to grab things or use a cane to ...
