MS Hug and Indicas

MS Hug related symptoms are the most unpleasant and truly frightening of any of the MS symptoms I have dealt with in my 30+ years of dealing with MS.

Has anyone found indica cannabas (medical marijuana) to be of help in relieving this symptom?

I have just filled a prescription for liboderm lidocaine patches to have on hand when an attack happens (I've heard this is helpful), but am looking for additional alternatives.

Thanks for ...

11 years waiting for a diagnosis. I knew this day would come

The reason I'm here, for support I guess, I'm kinda' starting from scratch.
My name is Dirk, my username is the Dutch word for "Life".

Just had my 3'rd MRI & this time they found it. 4'th quadrant, 11x3mm demyelinating plaque.

I'm scared, but only 'cause I don't have all the facts. As this diagnosis is recent, although no real surprise, I havn't been back to my specialist for the follow up appointment to go ...

Postharvest Fruit/Vegetable & Meat Chlorination

A few days ago, my son and I somehow ended up in a conversation about baby carrots in the supermarket not being 'real' baby carrots. I did a bit of research and found he was right, but also found out that carrots are soaked in chlorinated water after they are harvested.

Stem Cells, Ocrelizumab, anything else on the horizon?

Hi all! Kind of new, kind of down, and was wondering if any new research was out there to give me a little hope in finding a cure for MS.

Anything else on the horizon I should keep my eye on? Thanks for ...
