Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease

People new to MS often ask what they can do. I think an understanding of history is important in every situation. To that end, I recommend that everyone start a library concerning MS and I think this book, Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease by T. Jock Murray, OC, MD, is a good first acquisition.

It starts at the beginning with recognition of the disease, lists names and contributions of scientists, and offers a ...

Oh God, help, please!

I am getting married in 7 days, and yesterday I developed a sore throat which today has spread to my lungs. I'm pretty certain it's flu virus.

Everytime I get the flu, I am bed-ridden for days. I am devastated :(

Nothing is open, I don't know where to call. I want to know if I can take antivirals while taking Rebif. I've scoured the net - ...

Research on a stem cell alternative

Interesting stuff...



Toward An Alternative To Stem Cells For Treating Chronic Brain Diseases

Science Daily — With ethical issues concerning use of discarded embryos and technical problems hindering development of stem cell therapies, scientists in Korea are reporting the first successful use of a drug-like molecule to transform human muscle cells into nerve cells. This advance could lead to new treatments for stroke, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders.

In the study, Injae ...

Are mornings bad?

I was just curious if it is common to feel the worst right after you get up in the morning. I was dx'd in 2001 with ppms and as it has progressed, I have noticed that the mornings are brutal. I have strange shuddering symptoms and this profound sense of illness that goes away after I "wake up". For me thats about 2 hrs. This disease produces such different symptoms in each person you never ...

Any luck with fumaric acid or BG 12 ??

I have been faithfully taking fumaric acid for two months now --240mg TID.
The good news to report is that I have had absolutely no adverse effects so far and I'm feeling better -- less fatigue, normal workload, able to exercise like I want, not as overwhelmed with simple tasks, etc. It's tough for me to tell whether it's the antibiotics or the fumaric acid helping me. What I would like to see is improvement ...

What's your experience with cooling vests, etc.?

My heat intolerance is increasing and starting to become a problem if I need to go outside on hot days for any length of time. Someone just asked me what I knew about cooling vests and other cooling products, and I have to admit I know very little. I don't even know anyone who uses any (well, I might know them, but I don't know that they use them ...

NA channel blockers: the risks.

Although NA channel blockers seem to have beneficial effects, there are a couple of cautions here: first, withdrawal seems to cause serious complications. However they don't mention how sudden the withdrawal was, so maybe it will be a case of simply not stopping them quickly, as with several other drugs. Second, the sentence, " the effect of sodium channel blockers on immune cells", makes me wonder what that effect was.
Hopefully, this just amounts to ...
