Never-ending Beginning...

I was diagnosed with MS in January of 2015, after having beginning symptoms starting at the end of October 2014. I began Gilenya. I am not even sure exactly how many lesions were on that first MRI, however I did read the report in August of 2015. That MRI had over 20+ lesions, meaning way too many to count.

Anyone tried MitoQ, or done much study on it?

I've seen some research in PubMed on MitoQ the antioxidant supplement, and it seems to be used for hypertension. Just wondering if:

a) can you take it safely with Tecfidera, or would the two cancel each other out? - I tried ALA/NAC with Tecfidera but got increases in symptoms 10 days in on the 2 occasions I tried both things.

b) does it look like snake-oil or a worthwhile thing?

I made a movie with other MS people

I wanted to show people MS does not have to stop you living. You can still live and do things even though you're retired or sitting in wheelchair like I am.

The shortmovie is non-profit, free and bilingual, Finnish and English.

Pissed blood starting in 2008 to find bladder cancer in 2013 and had my bladder removed.
