Activia

Just wanted to share some possibly positive info with everyone. First, I do NOT have MS but my daughter does. I DO have three "autoimmune" diseases. (After much reading/research, I do not believe in the autoimmune theory--not important however.)

I started taking Activia after reading about it and the fact that their claims are validated by the FDA. Activia balances the digestive tract where many problems can originate. It balances the good and bad bacteria. ...

Struggling

I am getting impatient again with the extension. I just posted in the general discussion about recent changes in my ability to void urine and am just absolutely maddenned with my constant downhill slide this year.

Help with a bladder issue

I need some help. We all know that there can be specific issues with our bladders. However, I have found out that there are (from what I can find) three discreet conditions that you can have with your bladder from MS.

One is OAB (Over Active Bladder) which, in layman's terms, means you have to pee all the time.

Two is flaccid bladder where your bladder over fills and does not generate sufficient contractions to ...

Expert Panel Consensus

Sounds very authoritative: "expert panel consensus". However, as is typical with all things MS, the consensus includes the old proviso, "more study required".

injection# 2

Hey All,
Although I have been trying to curb my time spent "in forum" (I am finding the less immersed I am the better my denial works), I thought I would post an update. I had my 2nd series of injections on 8/3/07. Pretty standard stuff. No site reactions either time. I do however seem to get ill post injection.
