Tinnitus

Hey guys

So I am on that path where things don't get better and the list of issues just grows.

I started taking anti-depressants after being told by my neuro back in early June that I was in a low mood and that wouldn't help my spasticity. Jeez really - I am in a LOW MOOD? What a surprise - take the spasticity away and I will cheer up I promise.

For wheelchairers, how do you pull up pants after toileting?

After toileting, how do you pull up your underwear and pants (by yourself) if you can't stand long enough or have sufficient balance to stand unsupported? Is there a piece of equipment you use to help, such as a standing pole or a toilet bench that allows you to lean side to side to scoot up your pants? I'm having a heck of a time figuring this out. Thanks for your help!

Lipoic acid reduces the rate of brain atrophy in SPMS patients

In a study that set out to determine whether lipoic acid slowed the whole-brain atrophy rate in people with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS), scientists discovered a 68% reduction in annualised percent change brain volume (PCBV). This suggests a clinical benefit in SPMS, while maintaining favourable safety, tolerability, and compliance over a two year period...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/lipoic-acid-reduces-rate-brain-atrophy-spms-patients-030717

new medical entity set appart from MS

First it was Neuromyelitis Optica. It was set appart from MS when anti-AQP4 antibodies were found to be specific of this kind of disease.

Then it came "anti-MOG associated encephalomyelitis". It was found that only very atypical MS could present anti-MOG antibodies, and now it is considered a separate disease.

And it has happened again. Around 2% of MS patients have auto-antibodies against a specific protein named flotillin. It seems that anti-flotilin patients will make ...

Doctors in USA doing venoplasty for CCSVI

I had the liberation procedure done in October 2010. My quality of life improved dramatically. I was fairly stable until another attack in December 2016. My high level of fatigue has since returned.

If anyone can refer me to a qualified individual ...
