Crushing fatigue... help!

Hi there,

It's been a while since I've posted here. I've been struggling with extreme fatigue for a while now. My neuro put me on modafinil, but I did not react well to it at all.

So... It's official. Time to move forward

Went to see the neuro doc yesterday. So it's official. They want to treat me with trecfidera. They wanted to immediately order Iv steroids for 3 to 5 days but I refused. I believe I'm on the rebound from my flare up. My symptoms are a lot better than what they were so I'm just gonna wait it out. So now the game begins. The dx is no surprise to me. I was pretty sure ...

Conducted by Katrin Hanken of the Department of Psychology at Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg in Germany, and colleagues, the study was published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology in September 2016...Read more -

vascular problems also found in the retina

The retina and the optic nerve are the only extensions of the CNS that can be observed non-invasive. The retina in MS is known to degenerate and is unknown how, as there is no myelin on the retina and current MS models do not explain this problem.

Two new articles have found that retinal degeneration is linked to blood flow problems in the eye.

I would challenge any supporter of the autoimmune model to explain ...
