I've been copaxoned!

The copaxone training lady came to meet with me at work. I have now done my first injection and so far so good. I have a small red area on a wobbly bit and it seriously stung for a bit but now it just achey stings. I can live with this!

The side effects are ok and she said that she's had a lady do an entire pregnancy on it and had a healthy delivery! ...

Treatment 1: Solu-Medrol/methylprednisolone and side effects

After recently being diagnosed on 6/6 I've started a 5 day IV drip of Solu-Medrol(steroids) as a first step before I start a long term approach to attacking the diesase. I guess it's pretty standard stuff.

I had some questions about the experience of anyone that has gone through this treatment because I've been experiencing some side effects.

During the treatment I felt great. I even went for a couple runs for the first time ...

MS?

I'm sure you guys get many people on here asking if these are the symptoms of MS. So please forgive me for being another intruder with odd symptoms and no diagnosis. But I'm freaking out here.
I know some of this stuff is symptoms, but I'm not sure about other things.

Let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Sherry. I'm a 33 yr old mother to four children. Ages 14-4. I'm ...

Question about eyesight

I have a question for those who read this post...

Last night I fell asleep in bed watching TV, after about and hour I woke up.... I was hot so I stood up to turn on the ceiling fan and noticed that I couldn't see right. At first I thought my eyes were just trying to adjust, but they never did snap out of it. Both of my eyes worked fine by theirselves, but they ...

Longer term results?

I have to apologize, I am only recently starting to follow the HyCy threads.

I have yet to find any discussions in the threads, or further information on the web, regarding the statements:
Kerr cautions that the "reboot" phenomenon didn't work in all the patients. Two years after treatment, MRI images showed that the disease had reactivated in about half the study participants, suggesting that their renewed ability may not be permanent.

Are these LDN side effects?

I started 1.75 mg 13 days ago. I've had no insomnia or vivid dreams or anything like that, but I have noticed an increase in weakness in my right leg, much worse numbness in my hands, and feeling more tired than usual in just the last week or so. My right foot is also numb for the first time ever. Could this just be coincidence or actual side effects from the LDN? The leg weakness ...

Loobie's 100 day club thread

Well,

I really wanted to post this about a week ago, but I had to give it the 4 day test, plus a few. After about an entire month of feeling better, I have slipped back to where I was before, and actually a little worse. If you remember from my previous 100 day club post, I had been feeling more stable and much stronger in the leg dept. Not running or anything, just feeling ...
