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.

Taking Copaxone & Rebif together

I will soon be adding Rebif to my Copaxone therapy. My neuro suggested it since Copaxone seems to have lost its efficacy. Has anyone else tried this?

Taking Copaxone AND Rebif together...

Does anyone know of any stem cell clinical trials happening in the us? I heard that there was one at the Cleveland clinic, but I can't find any info. I think it was based on fat cells??

Your advice please - to cord blood or not

As the birth of our boy approaches, we're struggling with the decision whether or not to bank the cord blood.

I've done some reading, but the majority of what's out there seems to be biased toward banking it.

It costs about $1000 to set up, then another $125/year. This is one of the companies that works with our hospital:

Is there any benefit specifically for people with MS? ...

Near 2 month update, follow up, spreading the word.

So we're nearly two months out.

In the last week Mel's slipped back a bit.

Nothing major and no MS type symptoms but the initial super energy has gone.

This has coincided with a weird feeling in her neck/jaw on the left side.

Again, she is still doing great but just a general feeling of tiredness is coming back a bit. However this has coincided with 12 hour work days, lots of stress and she's ...

Meet a man starting 2nd year of Campath

While I was getting my Tysabri Infusion we met a man and his wife who came in to say hello the infusion nurses. He said he would be back next week to start year 2 of Campath.

I asked if he thought it helped and he said definately, although he still could not tolerate the heat and humidity at all. He was excited to have year 2 infusions.

The infusion nurse also said they we ...
