CellCept

Saw my Neurologist today. My PPMS is getting worse and he suggests that I try CellCept to lower my cell count. If that doesn't work he wants to try Rituxan. I am familiar with Rituxan but have never heard of CellCept until today. Any opinions or advice on this medication?

Bob,

You are nearing the 2,000 posts mark (mostly drivel). No need to respond to this one - but you will.

I hear that Arron has resigned as moderator as he can no longer stand reading your posts.

Staring into space or Day Dreaming look

I would like to know if anyone else has had this symptom. I have had it for most of my time with MS.

You look like you are day dreaming/staring into space and you hear buzzing in the ears, eyes get blurry and face gets hot.

marathon

My husband ran the 32nd Marine Corps Marathon this past Sunday. He ran it to raise funds for Accelerated Cure Project. He trained for 6 months in the hot, humid Florida weather. His goal (besides just finishing!) was to run the race in less than 5 hours. This was quite a lofty goal for a first time marathoner. His time was 4:58:32! It was an incredible experience, not just for him but for his family ...

Does anyone read these?!?!?

I posted on the REBIF specific message board literally 100 years ago and no one posted back. I feel kind of like if a tree falls down in the forest and no one is there to hear it does it make a sound when it falls?!?! Yes, that's right I'm philosophical too!!

An LDN question, that's been bugging me for a while..

Hi there,
I'm not particularly an LDN sceptic (I'd take it if I had PPMS,after all there's nothing else right now), but there is a point that's been bugging me for quite some time.

Is there any clinical proof that LDN can't be taken with interferons?

Now, I'm asking this because in the UK, the main LDN prescribing doctors hold this view. The CRAB drugs have only been widely available in the UK since 2002, ...

Injecting in shoulder

I was wondering if anyone here rotates their shoulders into their injection routine, and whether they use the 1 and 1/4 inch needle or the 1 inch (or anything else). Im thinking about getting my arms into the rotation since I feel as though my legs can use a longer break between shots.

Im receiving the shorter needles this week just in case I decide to do it in the arm. Im still not to ...
