Termination Appt. and What Did You Switch To

Hey gang,

I thought it would be interesting to have a topic where we post how the termination appointment went as well as what meds/treatment did you decide to switch to. My termination appointment is tomorrow so I will update you then.

Take care,

Vaccine Against Multiple Sclerosis? Mouse Experiment Yields Promising Results

ScienceDaily (Dec. 3, 2008) — Some 80,000 people in Germany suffer from multiple sclerosis – their immune system attacks and destroys healthy nerve tissue. Researchers at the Heidelberg University Hospital and the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg have succeeded in vaccinating mice with specially treated, autologous immune cells and preventing them from developing encephalitis, which is similar to multiple sclerosis in humans.

I need some help with ss disability issues. I recently won a partially favorable decision, meaning I was awarded benefits, but none of the back pay because they changed my onset date to July 2008, rather than the actual date I became disabled June 2004. I have several questions:

1. Has anyone appealed to the federal appeal's council more than once with any success? :?

2. Is ...

United Health Care Bites

I've got a problem and I hope someone on here responds who has some knowledge of handling these types of situations. As some of you know, I just started Tysabri. So you have to enroll in the TOUCH prescribing program. They not only tell you about PML about a thousand times, but they also 'do your insuarance stuff'. This all happens before you get your first dose so you know what to expect and all ...

Someone other than Chris

I had talked to one of the Docs at JH and I won't say who, because I didn't ask if I could say this lol.

They have had to treat someone else again. I have no idea who. I guess they are 3-4 months out. I have no idea how long they made it before they reactivated either.

I may have experienced some fatigue today. I had a crap night though so it's hard to ...

Fatigue and the missing enzyme

Researchers at Howard Hughes Medical Institute find an enzyme, neuronal nitric oxide synthase, is missing in mice with fatigue...after giving a vasodilator (viagra, in this instance) the mice are much more active and fatigue less easily. Here is the nitric oxide link we've been writing about in our vascular discussions, and provides an explanation for why many are finding relief from fatigue by pursuing this route.

In studies with genetically engineered mice that showed ...

Pre-relapse signs....put our heads together?

I'm just wondering if we could all put our heads together to discuss the pre-relapse period....
I've noticed that I have a short phase, just before a relapse, when signs and symptoms happen. I am curious to know if others have a set pattern of these too? Perhaps we might come up with some ideas or suggestions.

I tend to get these things before a relapse (up to 4 wks before):

Increased bruising (typically ...
