Scare Tactics

Here is a load of "BS"....

I've never had MJ before, because I don't want to get in trouble, but if it were legal, I'd definitely try it.

But... Here is a BS article that sounds more like scare tactics than fact.

Optic Neuritis?

I am currently enduring an Optic Neuritis attack. It led to my MS diagnosis. May 2007 I lost my sight entirely. No vision in my right eye at all. Now, 2.5 months later, I can see movement and shapes but really only in dim light. I am still relatively blind in bright sunlight. I can basically now see contrast between light and dark objects.

For those who have endured Optic Neuritis, did you recover your ...

I feel lost and scared


Since I know, that I will get the diagnosis MS in the future, I feel completely lost and scared. I am still in Limbo, but I feel weird things going on in my body. Last fall I had a very long epsiode of several symptoms that lasted about three months, the most scary two were my slured speech and difficulties when swallowing. My neurologist told me, that it is hard to call it an ...

Average annualized change in MS parameters


since a long time I'm looking for data in RRMS about the average...
- annualized relapse rate
- annualized new MRI lesions
- annualized change in EDSS

I also asked my neuro about that but he didnt know.

So a reasonable way would be to gether these infomation for ...

Saving Neurons and Memories

Physicians can treat the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders, but there is no way to prevent or reverse the underlying degeneration and death of neurons that characterize these diseases. Now research by scientists at Harvard and MIT suggests a potential new therapeutic approach.

The scientists have shown that a gene called SIRT1 and ...

Copaxone for ppms

Hi All:

I haven't posted for a while but I was interested to see if anyones neuro is advising them to use copaxone for ppms as mine is? I have a very high degree of confidence in this group. They are researchers and only treat MS patients. It seems they believe that copaxone will provide some level of "neuro protection." This has put me in a quandary because I know the ppms study was shut ...

I have this foot problem that I probably got from working out (according to my DPM) and it has caused me to slow down and walk without putting weight on the ball of my right foot. It is temporary and I know it, but for ...
