California

They now have the go ahead from the courts, after two years of being held up, to proceed in distributing money for research with stem cells. The Supreme Court chose not to hear the case making it void. This is a huge step and I can only hope other states now follow.

Copaxone Seeping

I started Copaxone a month ago. Occasionally I find that it seeps out after the injection. When that happens, the site bleeds more than normal. I haven't withdrawn the needle early and I always do a 90 degree angle so I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong.

Do you find that your thighs are the worst pain wise afterwards? Sometimes I still feel it the next day.

Demylination, but were afraid to ask?

I came accross this (oldish 1999) pdf while searching for something else. I have yet to read it, but flicking through it it appears to have a lot of explanations with diagrams of what is happening. I thought that someone else may find it interesting.

I feel that my current therapies are benefiting me significantly when compared to my disease activity prior to changing therapies . He mentioned previously that he would order the pulse roids for a year or two. In case he does not ...

My daughter

This post is for all of you who were so kind and supportive of both my daughter, Suzy, and me-- Jimmylegs, mormiles, lyndacarol, moonwolf, sh8un, wino, anecdote (Sarah), etc. I have an exciting update! (For those who were not so supportive, you will probably want to skip this post—no more fights, please!)

I have sent private emails to most of you, I believe, with the results of Suzy’s visit to her MS specialist this past ...

Could it be?

MacKintosh wrote:In different people, it manifests differently. Sometimes it gets into the brain and becomes MS, sometimes the joints and becomes rheumatoid arthritis, sometimes chronic fatigue syndrome, high blood pressure, etc.

If this is true then all the other research and drugs are just a mistake. All the people that are trying these drugs must really wonder if they are doing the right thing. For someone just starting out they have the neurologist telling them ...
