MS/TM/NMO/ADEM Scientific Conference for Patients

If you have any interest in seeing some scientific presentations on MS/TM/NMO/ADEM, meeting other patients, and hob-nobbing with researchers, then I highly recommend this symposium: http://www.acceleratedcure.org:8080/node/3187

It's in Seattle July 16 - 19, 2008 and is a great opportunity to learn about these diseases, meet others who have them, and talk to the researchers who are working on them. I'll be there and would love it if you would introduce yourself if you see me.

What has helped you with fatigue?

My worst symptom so far is the fatigue. What has helped you with your fatigue?

I have PPMS, a mild case, not yet affecting me physically (legs and arms) too much. The fatigue is kicking my behind.

What have you done to help with this?

All suggestions will be appreciated.

Little son - how do I minimise his risk?

Hi
my little son is 2 months old. To my shock I recently read that the tranmission rate to children of a parent with MS is 1 in 10 - whereas I had always read up until recently that it was 1 in 100. 1 in 10 is so high, I am a bit worried about his future. But I suppose he has a 9 in 10 chance of NOT having it.....

What things should ...

Red Hair

Has anyone ever noticed how many people with MS have red hair? (I went on a freckles rant a while back, now I'm stuck on red hair)
In the general population, I read that 1-2% of people have red hair. I'm convinced that % is MUCH higher in those of us with MS. For those of you who do not have red hair, what about your parents, siblings, grandparents?
I can't find info on how ...

MS Expo in Louisville, KY

I received a postcard in the mail announcing the first ever MS Expo in Louisville, KY on July 26, 2008 from 9am to 6pm. There is a website http://www.themscenterexpo.org for more information and to register if you plan to attend. I am not endorsing this event just letting everyone know so that if you're in or around the area you may be interested in attending. I'm kicking around the idea of going.

Candida and MS

I posted here a long time ago about an odor emitting from my pores, that has gotten worse as my MS has gotten worse.

I'm cleaning the yeast out of my intestines and the odor is going away. My energy is coming back.

I stopped the acetyl-glucosamine because it was irritating my prostate, which is whole other new story.

I advise all of you to get some good probiotics and digestive enzymes. It's working wonders ...

Dummies

I get a couple of e-mails a week from the 'Dummies' people pushing their latest books. Today's e-mail was a bit of a jaw dropper:

Multiple Sclerosis For Dummies

By Rosalind Kalb, Ph.D., Nancy Holland, RN, EdD, MSCN, Barbara Giesser, MD, David L. Lander

Now if only they could write MS Research for Dummies.

Libido

I seem to have misplaced mine in the past few years. Worrying, since I'm at an age where I should have increased urges. They're simply not there, at all.

At first I thought that having surgery for endometriosis 4-5 years ago was the reason. Now I'm wondering if I can point back to MS as the culprit.

Anyone else have these problems? I'm taking Chaste Tree at the suggestion of my nutritionist/natural doctor along with ...
