getting sick,flu,cold, etc

I'm guessing that its just a simple 'Yes' or 'No' but I was unable to find the answer i was looking for... With MS, because it affects the CNS, does this mean it is easier, or more likely for a person to get sick over a person who doesn't have ms? And when I say sick, Im just talking about the common cold, or the flu or whatever. Thanks.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to help spread the word of CCSVI especially for those who can't get to Calif. If my memory serves me correctly, Cheer and/or Marie wrote a introduction piece for those that wanted to make contact w/other Docs in their ...

Hi all...

I've been lurking for a while and decided that this is the time to post...

So...here's the thing...I just finished this book and found it to be very ...

One Vein, Two Vein, Red Vein, Blue Vein

I can read it all by myself.

That's the goal. I'm interested in CCSVI. I’ve spent a little bit of time here at TIMS, first learning that a cytokine was and all about the variations of what is a white blood cell. Then I spent (and still spend) time on bacteria and antibiotics. So you might know just exactly the level of understanding I pursue. In a nutshell, I want to understand the “big words” ...


Raising heartrate and BP

Hi all,
I am thinking of trying to raise my bp and heart rate to increase blood flow. (My BP is 90/50 and Heart rate is 49-55bpm) I am going to start taking licorice root again and am thinking about maybe procarin (for the caffeine) has anyone tried this?

I know some herbs that raise BP and HR can be lethal, so I will make sure I don't over do it. Any other herb suggestions? ...

Days 3 & 4 - chemo done!

hi everyone,

Well, I've survived days 3 and 4 of the chemo with no major problems!

Yesterday they ran an iron transfusion and I seemed to have slight side effects from it (chest pain), but nothing too major. They ran a few tests and I was fine.

Today was my final dose. They ran it earlier in the day (at noon) so that I can leave the hospital this evening at 8pm.

This round went ...

More therapies for MS disease

There is a study out looking for people that have MS disease. It is called HALT-MS. It uses cancer drugs and stem cells. It is in three locations in the USA. If you google HALT-MS you should be able to find information about this study.
It is also in Medical News Today under the MS section.

Cervical spine MRI

This is probably a silly question but is it possible that CCVI shows up on an MRI?

ok

I have read a lot from the people in this forum and I appreciate you thinking out side the box. However I do not know of any cardiovascular problem that relapses and remits. Also I can not understand why revimmune, which wipes out the IMMUNE SYSTEM, seems to be a very effective treatment. I understand the excitement in this thread but please guys do not give people false hope. MS is way more similar in ...
