New book: The Lyme Disease Solution by Ken singleton. MD

Lyme is still a controvercial area, good to see an MD weighing in. He also has a chapter on the use of Low Dose Naltrexone LDN in treating
Lyme. Here's the intro http://www.lymebook.com/lyme-disease-low-dose-
naltrexone-ldn

Just thought I'd point this out, since I have a positive Lyme PCR from
Igenex, and that is likely the cause of my "MS". I ...

Gadolinium/blood draws

I really don't sit around contemplating disaster, but this has been on my mind since before the Gadolinium issues came up. Since I have been in this trial, my trial days have been set up like this; I have an MRI and get injected with contrast then I go to my site for tests, injections and BLOOD DRAWS.

Pinworms! for Bob

Hey Bob-
Need your help. My darling son brought home a case of pinworms. (The things children can bring to your life!) Our family doc wants us all to take mebendazole, since we're all showing signs of infection. I won't give any more detail....it's truly disgusting. (We won't know for sure which parasite we have until our, uh, samples are studied, but the doc wanted to get us going in the mean time.)

hello from Boulder, CO, US

Hi everyone,

I'm Trish. I've been dx'ed for about 9 years. In two weeks I'll have my 7th or 8th Tysabri infusion. I had previously used Copaxone, Rebif and Novantrone without good results. The depression from the Rebif was unbearable.

Tysabri has been good for me so far. I have not had a serious relapse since I started it. I've noticed that I have kind of lost my appetite and I've lost about 15 - ...
