The pork thing

Okay, so I can believe that meat workers handling pig brains may catch some disease....

But as for pork causing MS. This is the most ridiculous pile of garbage I've ever heard.

What is on the top of the list for an American cook out??? Hot dogs! Now tell me with a straight face that this causes MS.

If this were true, then EVERYONE would have it.

Why Novantrone?

I went to see my neurologist yesterday, I go as infrequently as possible. I told him I went off my Avonex in December after nine years. I proceeded to tellhim I was considering LDN and he almost freaked. Now in the last nine years I've progressed nicely from walking without assistance to wheelchair bound. Never once did my Doctor tell me about Novantrone but now that I'm off Avonex and possibly considering LDN, he tells ...

Anyone using the enzyme Superoxide dismutase (GliSODin)?

I've been taking this antioxidant enzyme for about a month now and I think it's actually doing something! However it seems to be making one leg better and the other leg worse so it seems a bit of a mixed bag. Nonetheless I think that I'm becoming glad that I've found this pill as I can just tell it's doing something. I feel different. My burning pain has gone to not unpleasant tingling, the sharp ...

Where I am - still so confused!

It still seems like you guys are talking a foreign language, but I think I am getting there!

I still haven't had a definite dx - just lots of murmurings of MS from docs. I saw the neuro on 8th Jan and had MRi on 16th (bloody fast for NHS) and I now have to wait until 6th March for results! Although I have not been given a dx, the neuro I saw on 8th ...

Allergic reactions

Hello to everyone, I am very much aware that this maybe the best forum around the world for MS, so this is the place to place my ...... question regarding my third infusion of Tysabri here in Greece.

It started off neat, talking to my fellow Tysabri friends in the hospital chatting about stuff, however when the infusion reach its 50ml point (half way), I suddenly felt mentally abit weird, and my face and hands ...

Have sent my records to JH for HiCy

I want to agree with everyone who said the team at JH is incredible. I phoned Carrie Trecker, got phoned back by one of the doctors on the team, who spent more time reviewing my status/symptoms than my neurologist has in total over two years. His careful detail made me feel very positive about the treatment and I'm waiting for a cancellation on their schedule to fly out to JH for an full appointment.

I ...

To Loobie

Hey how are you doing on the Acetyl-Glucosamine? Send me a messege.

I recently added triple strength Glocusamine Chondroitin and Acetyl-Carnitine. I don't always take them together.

I've got an instinct about when and how much to take these things and it varies. I seem to be doing somewhat better with the alternating combo.
