vertigo

Okay, another new symptom has appeared and it is incredibily annoying. I have experienced what I now think is classified as vertigo. I originally described the feeling as "spacey" or the feeling you get with having had one too many glasses of wine without the benefit of having the wine! But I went to the mountains of North Carolina this past weekend and the feeling was much much more pronounced. So then I thought altitude ...

Detailed Minocycline Research info

See link below. This points to the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF). The link points to Dr. Ian Duncan's Research, however it is buried in the patent application. I was disappointed that someone has already patented this, because it tells me that profit is the motivator? Right? Anyway, good info, even if it is on rats...

Testosterone

My physian's assistant suggested that I try it. I'm not sure if she was jocking or not. I'm 45 so I'm starting to notice the thngs that come with middle age males. I told her I was slowly losing the hair on my legs she just fire it out there. I've never had my testosterone level checked so I have no idea what it might be. I've heard horror stories from guys I played football ...

IFN-ß users protected from West Nile Virus?

I had always wondered if folks exposed to WNV (symptomatic or not) developed immunity from it and no longer risked future illness from mosquito bites later on. After reading into this study I discovered that the natural response to infection of the flavivirus is the natural expression of IFN-B to disrupt RNA replication of the virus! Normally the virus interferes with that process to buy it time to replicate -HOWEVER- high dose sc injections 3X/wk ...

What do you do to stay well?

Hi Everyone,

I thought it would be interesting to know what those people who are well with ms/CIS do to to stay that way.

I mean are you taking any supplements? exercising? meds? diet? whatever.

I have had a CIS and waiting for an mri with contrast to most likely start on Avonex.
I'm well and symptom free thankfully but this is all very new.

Thanks

Elly :D ...

Hello, Kia Ora and Hola

Hello all,

Just found this site and seeing as it looks like a good place for info from level headed people I thought I´d join in.

After 24 years in the UK in the RAF I left to live in New Zealand for a life style change; 18 months after our arrival I was diagnosed with MS, not the life style change I was looking for but we´re still here and smiling.

Looking forward to ...
