shaky MRI

Any one know any tricks for holding still during an MRI?

I got a 6 month check up MRI yesterday. During a 5 minute sequence of the c-spine part, I gues I was moving too much, and the tech told me to hold really still for 5 more minutes, and I fell asleep (I didn't know she was re-shooting the 5 minute sequence) I guess I really moved around while asleep. She was a bit ...

Lisinopril blood pressure treatment

I was wondering what you people think about the recent study that was all over news using Lisinopril (a standard blood pressure medication with few side effects) to very effectively treat MS-like disease in rodents, in the context of this thread?

Asking for just plain old encouragement

I've learned so much reading articles and going through this site and others that it's lead me to. Am starting to hone the supplement regimen and gravitating towards certain theories and interventions. I really appreciate TIMS. But all the great info and head-candy aside, I'm just plain discouraged right now.

In a short time out of the gate, I've seen my function go downhill. My N acknowledged that since I'm "atypical" I don't really get ...

New to the forum

Hi my name is Chris, I am new to the forum. I was diagnosed with MS back in may of 2008 however the doctors suspect now that I probably had it as far back as 2002/2003 due to some of the odd incidents that occurred to me back then.
