Cymbalta

I was on Effexor for 5 years. My 19 year old son had cancer and I needed it to cope. He is fine now----hallelujah! :D

I recently started hearing more and more about Cymbalta and how it could help with nerve pain. I was ready for a change; I think the Effexor was no longer helping and making me irratible and grouchy.

I asked my neuro ...

Nerve regeneration research

This looks like a promising development in neuroregeneration.



Neurotransmitters in biopolymers stimulate nerve regeneration

Research reported December 11 in the journal Advanced Materials describes a potentially promising strategy for encouraging the regeneration of damaged central nervous system cells known as neurons.

The technique would use a biodegradable polymer containing a chemical group that mimics the neurotransmitter acetylcholine to spur the growth of neurites, which are projections that form the connections among neurons and between neurons ...

Neurologist Dan Milder's SP & PP treatment Hypothesis

I accidental flicked onto a "press club" interview on TV of this doctor who thinks he MAY have found a possible treatment for SP & PP MS.

He seemed a little upset that considering there is no ...

An Eye Question

Alright, I think I'm at the point where my ON eye is not getting any better. My question would be will the bad vision in my left eye cause my right eye to strain itself? Should I see an ophthalmologist to get glasses or something?

Not only am I knew to my MS but also to vision problems, it used to be perfect and I've never had problems before this.

Hey everyone and glad i found this forum. I was reading on the Phoenix Business Journal about a company in Tucson (MSDx) that had developed a Blood test for MS where you won't need an MRI or Spinal Tap for a diagnosis. Has anyone or their doctor(s) heard about this yet.

I went to their web site for more info and they didn't state a time frame on this. I'll post the article also but ...
