Messing with my medication

My doc put me on gabapentin for the pain that I have been having in my legs & bum - the original does did nothing and the doubled does (600mg/day) had a little effect on the pain but nothing really noticible. I did however start gaining weight when I should have lost (am on strict diet).

I have decided (without checking with my GP) to stop taking the gabapentin to see how much difference it's ...

European Neurological Society Meeting

The European Neurological Society is in the midst of their annual meeting and it looks like there are numerous presentations on a variety of MS topics.

This is a link to the meeting. And here's a link to search the scientific programme . I just couldn't get a decent link to all the MS abstracts. :roll:

lets move South

Hi All,
If Northern latitudes contribute to MS and Equatorial climes have virtually no MS, what happens when someone with MS moves South? There must be research dealing with this question. My question is a bit self serving, I just spent 10 days near Belize, it was very hot and humid and I have not felt better in 2 years. I literally had a pre-MS life for 10 days. I'm back and so are my ...

Concussion / brain injury update

Well it has been about a month and a half since I took a header off the stairs and ended up in the ER with a brain injury / concussion. Time for an update. Most of the major headaches and vertigo have calmed down. What I have left is serious equilibrium / balance problems and I have not regained my sense of smell. My ON seems to be worse now as well. Prognosis is unknown ...

FDA has changed its tune on amalgam fillings

Mercury fillings may harm some- like immunocompromised individuals...

"We do believe that the agency will ask for the label to indicate that mercury is an ingredient in the filling, and that special populations should be exempt from such fillings, such as: nursing women, pregnant women, young children, and immunocompromised individuals,"
