The Big Imponderable - Real Serious Question

There seems to me to be a giant timeline, big picture kinda thing with MS. I'm wondering if we as a group can collectively give this idea form. I begin, with an analogy.

As a business major I had to take marketing. When you take marketing you learn about the product life cycle. There are 4 stages, innovation, growth, maturity, decline. A lot like life, childhood, young adulthood, maturity and golden years. In MS, I'm ...

Just a quick question...Has anyone's MS symptoms suddenly increased after back/neck manipulation? I have had MS for 14 years but very very midly, sensory probs only. My first real relapse came days after having my back clicked (I suffered from a numb left thigh and a burning/weak leg). I recovered back to normal after this then about 6 months later I had a course of physio sessions where on one occasion my neck was forcefully ...

Vascular Specialist - What tests?

What tests should I request? The 'chosen' tests seem to change.

My PCP supports the idea. He is concerned about my swollen/discolored ankles/legs.

Hello from the Land of Enchantment

Hi Everyone,

My name is Susie, and I live in Albuquerque. I am 55 years old.

I've be dealing with MS-like symptoms since last summer. I had two visual field cuts (lasting a few minutes), same eye, same pattern separated by two months. That's what first took me to my GP. Since I am a heart patient my GP and cardiologist presumed that I was throwing emboli, and I began anticoagulation therapy last December. This ...

Tramacet side effects?

I occasionally take Tramacet for headache pain when plain aspirin won't do the trick. I took 4 yesterday, 2 at 8:30 pm and 2 at 1:30 am. When my headache woke me up at 1:30 am, and again this morning, I felt like I was vibrating inside. My wife said I was twitching and shaking in my sleep.
Felt like a coffee overdose, but my hands were not visibly shaking.

Does anyone know if the ...

Anybody use the Caltrain from San Jose Airport to Palo Alto?


Did anyone use the Caltrain from SJC to Palo Alto? If you did please share what you liked or disliked about the service.

It appears to be convenient from airport to Palo Alto and the Sheraton is so close to the train station.



MS symptoms but I haven't been to my doctor yet

I have been having tingling/ pins and needles, tremors, numbness, headaches, shivering, jerking, weakness in my legs, trouble swallowing and seizures (although the seizures are getting better). I think this is caused by some medication that I was taking for schizophrenia. I wonder if it's turning into MS. I have been taking cod liver oil and just recently lecithin. I hope this helps. The lecithin seems to be helping. I'm hoping I can get some ...
