MRI "raises a concern for previous demyelinating disease"

Basically, they found "small foci of periventricular white matter signal changes adjacent to the fourth ventricle" that seem like an atypical demelinating process, as well as a well defined old 6mm lesions at the base of the posteria fossa. BUT, since both the signal changes and the lesion are not supratentorial (they are in my cerebellum), it is "somewhat atypical of multiple sclerosis".

They go onto list a few types of tumors, tuberous sclerosis and ...

Just Started Tecfidera

Hello everyone!

zinc and copper

bit confused about taking zinc and copper. First can they be taken together? and should they be taken separately if possible? I ask because lots of supplements combine them yet i thought they compete with each other. Are they synergestic taken together? I see this board recommend 50/2 but most of the information on the net says 10:1 combo. Any clarification, thanks.

She's been doing quite well on prednisone lowering the dose and Imuran. She got diagnosed very early so the doctor decided for a milder approach.

A few weeks ago a few things happened at ...
