Skipping a Shot Once a Week

My insurance is refusing to pay for the new dosage of Copaxone of 40 mg. 3xwk. Since my skin is a mess (and I rotate!) and I am running out of shot sites, I have been skipping one shot a week for about three months. It adds up to the same amount of medicine I would be getting if I were able to get the new dosage. Now I am in relapse, but I don't ...

My gf of 5 years has MS and I can't take it anymore

So when I started going out with my gf, she told me she had ms. But she seemed fine, and I honestly didn't know too much about ms, so I didn't think it was a big deal...

My gf when she is really tired, stressed or angry, ...

Omega-3 fatty acids lower matrix metalloproteinases

The effects of omega-3 Fatty acids on matrix metalloproteinase-9 production and cell migration in human immune cells: implications for multiple sclerosis.

So tired that if I lie down flat on the floor I will sleep; this has never happened before. I think that it is tapering off slightly today (could be hope more than ...

First flare up without lesions?

One morning earlier this year I woke up with a tingling hand. It was the same feeling you get when you've held a limb in a position for too long. After the tingling did not go away I went and saw my doctor. By this time the tingling had started moving up a little further up my arm. Over the course of four months both of my arms and legs were tingling and going completely ...
