no

Was just at the doctor and asked for some lipitor but he said no and i said i wil see you in six months with high colesterol and we left and went right to mc donalds. I showed him some stuff on it and he said anything above 20mg is hard on the liver. How do u tell your doctor who just wants you to be as healthy as you can that you don't care ...

amyl nitrite

The UK MS Society is a poor cousin (financially) of the NMSS. However, this means that it sometimes funds some slightly different types of research.

I've never heard of amyl nitrite, but thought that CureorBust could add it to his (her) ever increasing list of drugs / supplements.

Why will my neuro not prescribe Tysabri?

Not sure where to post this question, so I figure the general discussion might be best...

A bit of background info: I live in Canada, I have drug coverage through work and Tysabri is covered at the same level as the CRAB’s. Tysabri is available with a doctor’s prescription.

I’ve been diagnosed since 2005 and upon diagnosis, my neuro labeled me primary progressive. At a follow up visit in June 2006, he re-confirmed his PPMS ...

How do you know what type you have???

I am newly diagnosed (11/06). I haven't had my appointment with an MS Specialist yet (5/07), and wanted to know how some of the posters know they have RR or SP? Is there a test, is it tracking of symtoms/attacks? I was diagnosed about 2 weeks from my first symptom, so I am new to MS and am still trying to figure out the basics. My Neurologist assumed RR, but how do you know???

Effectiveness of Treatments Survey

Okay - so I know I am new but I stumbled on this website today. Yes it's people's subjective opinions of what is working, what's hurting and what's not but it's still pretty darn informative when there are so many choices same as in MS. So many of the treatments below are MS treatments as well.

Any chance ThisIsMS could do a survey like this?

Message for All Current Tysabri Patients

Hi everyone,

As some of you know, I was one of the MS patients that testified (via video) before the FDA AC Hearings on March 7, 2006, in an effort to voice a patient's opinions re: Tysabri and try to bring Tysabri back to those of us who want/need it as an option to fight our disease.

A small group of us formed the all-volunteer non-sponsored website http://www.mspatientsforchoice.org/ that provides accurate and up-to-date information on ...
