Nitrous oxide and ms?

I've seen a good few papers on Nitric oxide and MS, but just wondering about Nitrous oxide. <shortened url>
....excuse my ignorance but is it totally different?

It's just that nitrous oxide (tradename "Entonox") is used for pain relief during labour (34 wks pregnant at the moment!) and I'm researching my options - but I don't want to take it if it would increase relapse risk in any way.

Massive tremor and shaking when stretching & yawning.

I have recently been getting massive tremors and shaking when I stretch, or yawn. This is pretty troubling. When I am in bed and I do a little stretch my whole body shakes like a scene from invasion of the body snatchers movie. It also is apparent when I do something as benign as a yawn. What the hay is that? Has anyone else had this, or am I breaking new ground with my bizzare ...

Venlafaxine (Effexor) exhibits anti-inflammatory effect

Abstract: ... d=17445357

Department of Neurology, Neuroimmunology, Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf, Düsseldorf, Germany.
Growing evidence indicates immunoregulatory effects of various antidepressants. Through the interaction of the nervous and immune systems, the norepinephrine-serotonin system was shown to modulate inflammatory CNS diseases. Thus, we examined the norepinephrine-serotonin reuptake inhibitor venlafaxine in an astroglia-microglia co-culture model which allows mimicking of an inflammatory milieu by increasing the cultured microglial fraction. Astrocytic membrane resting ...
