Food Allergies

I have just been diagnosed with an allergy to eggs, seriously eggs!? I eat a lot of eggs. Studying this I have learned of the immune response related to it and as I was reading that info it sounded like I was reading MS 101. Maybe it's time for a food allergy poll. By the way, I have also discovered there is egg in certain vaccines and I have always been suspicious of a battery ...

New here, though not really, I've been reading for years.

I am a 43 year old wife and mom of 2, diagnosed in '04 with benign RRMS. My first symptom however was in 1988 with numbness that lasted about 4 months, saw a neuro at that time but was never diagnosed. More of a wait and see.

Fast forward 16 years later and same symptom crops up again, had MRI and was diagnosed. Had one ...

I have found that I feel much better and at ease when I take the time to catch my breath and just stop for a minute. I believe some people use this time and call it by different names. Prayer,meditation etc....
all the great religions, at their core, espouse essentially the same truth, clothed merely in different modes of expression. This is just MY belief.
Slow down and breath. let some of your bad feelings ...

How do you tell friends you have MS?

Ok, here's the story. I'm going hiking, which is something I usually do, but this weekend I'm going with friends and for multiple days(so camping as well). I don't want someone to see my copaxone and think I'm shooting up heroin or something and I'm just assuming it would be better if I let them know. Makes it a bit more complicated since there is potential romantic interest there as well. Maybe I shouldn't say ...

and then the fight started....

When I got home last night, my wife demanded being taken someplace
expensive.... so, I drove to a gas station.....

and then the fight started....


After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social

Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's license

to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my

wallet at home.

I told the woman that I ...

Tysabri and antibiotics

Hi, everyone. I have to admit, I know very little about Tysabri, so I came to ask you a question for a friend who is on it. He isn't a computer guy and he doesn't know who to ask, so I offered to put this on the board.

He's been on Tysabri for about seven months and is happy with it. He also wants to start on the Wheldon antibiotic protocol, but my prescribing doctor ...

Hi everyone. I'd like to get some feedback about Provigil. Has anyone taken it for fatigue? My girlfriend is having what we think is a relapse. She was very fatigued for a few days, then felt better, but is very fatigued again today. I know she's really sick of it. The doctor gave her a sample of Provigil but she has yet to try it. She has relapsing/remitting and is on Copaxone, if that matters. ...
