new, scared and numb...

Hi everyone.
I was just diagnosed with MS. I'm 24, married, and have a 16 month old daughter. My entire torso pretty much and left arm are stone numb. I finished 3 days of IV steroids on friday but am on no other meds. I'm still in shock from the whole situation and am praying for the feeling to come back in my body so that I can feel again, and go back to work, ...

Geographic distribution, MS and CCSVI

Hi Guys,
First, a shout out to all of you guys who are forging ahead........Thanks to all you brave ones!

One of the more accepted aspects of MS is its geographic distribution. How does one marry the CCSVI theory with this?

Here is my quandry--- if we were only talking genetics, inheritance could be used to explain incidence geographically because of ethnic makeup in regions, for example, higher rates of MS in people of northern ...


Migraines and MS

Any MSer's on here with confirmed CCSVI have migraine headaches? Never had them until about 7 years ago which was about 4 years into what has now become an 11 year return of the MS disease. My neuro prescribed Imitrex which does help. They usually start with tension on one side of my neck and moves up behind my ear around the mastoid process and progresses to a unilateral nagging headache that would hang around ...

I have said this before but it’s not so much that I’m in a chair I can deal with that ...

Grant system leads medical researchers to play it safe

a terrific article in the NY Times today. Specifically deals with cancer research, and why doctors who think "outside the box" are not funded-


“Scientists don’t like talking about it publicly,” because they worry that their remarks will be viewed as lashing out at the health institutes, which supports them, said Dr. Richard D. Klausner, a former director of the National Cancer Institute.
But, Dr. Klausner added: “There is no conversation that I have ever ...


mysterious symptoms

Hi,

I'm French boy of 29 years old. I’ve got ms and all this call me out because of my background.
When I was 18 (1998), I woke up one morning with very strong confusion and vertigo that made me vomit about ten times during morning. It happened two mornings, those two past nights, I was sleeping on the back with the head straight, looking at the ceiling. The doctor sent me to an ear ...
