amyl nitrite

The UK MS Society is a poor cousin (financially) of the NMSS. However, this means that it sometimes funds some slightly different types of research.

I've never heard of amyl nitrite, but thought that CureorBust could add it to his (her) ever increasing list of drugs / supplements.

Why will my neuro not prescribe Tysabri?

Not sure where to post this question, so I figure the general discussion might be best...

A bit of background info: I live in Canada, I have drug coverage through work and Tysabri is covered at the same level as the CRAB’s. Tysabri is available with a doctor’s prescription.

I’ve been diagnosed since 2005 and upon diagnosis, my neuro labeled me primary progressive. At a follow up visit in June 2006, he re-confirmed his PPMS ...

How do you know what type you have???

I am newly diagnosed (11/06). I haven't had my appointment with an MS Specialist yet (5/07), and wanted to know how some of the posters know they have RR or SP? Is there a test, is it tracking of symtoms/attacks? I was diagnosed about 2 weeks from my first symptom, so I am new to MS and am still trying to figure out the basics. My Neurologist assumed RR, but how do you know???

THIS IS MS

Hi - This is my first post.

I have been following this website for a month now. Those of you posting on this website ROCK! I love finding a community of people who seem so well educated, proactive and so open to finding an answer to improve their personnel or loved one's lot in life rather than waiting for it to flow off the pen of their doctors.

So - Thanks to everyone on this ...

Atrophy

Interesting answer about atrophy and axonal damage. Good to hear that research is very active in this area and work underway looking at neuro-protection. Sometimes when I read these sorts of answers, I'm still not clear if it is the myelin which is damaged first and then the axons, or the axons are damaged first resulting in secondary damage to the myelin!
