In the Phase 3 Campath study!

So I needed to switch tx after 4 years on copaxone. Doc recommended I choose between tysabri and Campath, as he is involved in the study. It was a really hard decision, especially since I was dead set against taking an interferon. The research nurse said that if I was randomized onto the rebif I could drop out. So I went thru the entire process, then on randomization day - hooray!!!
I got my five ...

going in for #3 tomorrow

So tomorrow is infusion #3 for me

Haven't really noticed many differences as of yet but here's hoping that good changes are around the corner

Have had several side effects after the other 2 infusions so I'm hoping this time goes a bit better. My boss doesn't seem to understand that i'm pre-emptively booking off the next 2 days as sick days.

Wish me luck!

Tapering off Baclofen question

I have been taking oral Baclofen for almost 3 years. Started at around 30mg a day then last summer increased to 80mg during a relapse. I didn't think it did much at 30mg, so why I went up to 80mg, well I just don't know because I really do not believe it is helping anything. In the last month or so I've flucuated between 60 to 80 as sometimes I just forget to take it. ...

My PCP Is Reading the Research, May Order CT Venography

I met with my primary care physician yesterday, and presented him with 2008 Zamboni research paper. He did a cursory look at it as I explained its implications, and he was impressed enough to commit to reading the paper, as well as further research that I sent him via e-mail last night.

He seems very open to ordering the CT venography that Dr. Dake recommended. I told him that we'd probably need to order it ...

valsalva maneuver, posture

Since I don't think I will be having surgery anytime really soon, I have been poking around a bit seeing what I could learn about how posture might affect the ability of the jugular veins to drain the brain - with the notion that certain positions might be problematic (specifically wondering about computer-hunch position, but havent found any answers on that yet)

I'm finding some interesting stuff about how the jugulars collapse in normal people ...
