Hi I'm new and on the undiagnosed roller coaster

Hi There,
I had posted this under the "general discussion" but thought it may be more appropriate here so please excuse me if you have already read this before.
Let me explain a bit about myself. I am a 38 yo man with a loving wife and 2 wonderful children. In 2004 i had a 1 off session. It started with a really strange sensation in my head. What followed was like a seizure (but ...

I think i may have the dreaded MS

Hi There,
Let me explain a bit about myself. I am a 38 yo man with a loving wife and 2 wonderful children. In 2004 i had a 1 off session. It started with a really strange sensation in my head. What followed was like a seizure (but i was aware of what was going on) and then like a stroke. I was unable to lift my legs and my face was paralised down my ...

ABX Log

It seems to me that you are being very sensible in this: like you, my early relapses were few and far apart, but after about twelve years they started to come much more frequently, several a year with not such complete recovery as a new phase in the disease started. DMDs were by this time becoming available in the UK, but I was already too far gone to qualify.

In 2001 I had an enormous ...

Natural Fever Reducers??

I believe that I have now developed a lovely allergic reaction to Ibuprofen, and Tylenol always makes my heart race, so I was wondering if anyone knew of anything natural that actually worked?? I always take something with my Rebif shot.... not quite wanting to do one without a precaution!

Any ideas would be great!

Back to the BBQ......

Here is a washing machine I converted into an open pit style bbq. Yesterday was the trial run, with two slabs of ribs. I like to call it the Maytag BBQ. what do ya'll think?
BTW...Ribs came out excellent, and washed down great with some ice cold adult livations! It was too pretty outside here yesterday not to do something outdoors...

Second Campath infusion

I detailed the experience @ www.myspace.com/chilliwacklove under my blog, it's public so read it if you're interested. The 3rd and final infusion was on Wednesday. Thursday I woke with the rash; and had my mom around all day in case I needed her. Really I just wanted to rest. Today another rash but it didn't return as fierce as usual, 4 hours after the last benadryl. I continue to ...

new info? or not

I didn't see this posted so.... here it is. Question, how does Rituximab differ from the other monoclonal antibodies such as Campath and Tysabri?
Thanks Lars
