Lamotrigine trial results

Hi Guys,
yes, i have been quiet for a while but all has been well. In the same week that I received a blue badge (hurrah!) I also received a letter from the Consultant that was overseeing the Lamotrigine trial that I was on for 2 years and that finshed last Autumn. It turns out that I was in the 50% on the placebo, which is what I'd suspected all along. It was a double ...

The more I learn and read, the more I start to see a common denominator; I think. Seems to me that some who develop MS later in life, that their siblings (brothers or sisters) end up with MS as well. Does anyone know of any studies? Percentages? It sickens me to think that my brother may one day have to put up with this. :(

Copaxone and Cancer?

Someone very close to me was diagnosed with cancer and had previously been taking copaxone for two years. Nobody thought there was any connection. However, Teva seems very interested. Which is provoking this question. Has anyone else out there had a similar experience?

Spinal vs brain lesions?

Has there been any discussion on if CCSVI is more related to brain lesions than spinal lesions (or VV)? I have no brain lesions, only two C-spine lesions.

As I continue to hear of Cladribine's push towards approval, it occurred to me that I haven't really heard a lot of discussion here about it. Has anyone taken part in the trials? The data seems impressive to this point.

I hope a doppler will be a good first step

I was at the vein doctor today, getting my spider veins done, when my husband's GP phoned to have her do an "echodoppler couleur de veine jugulaire interne et de la veine vertebrale" on my huband. She said after looking at that, the doctor (specialty:angéiologie, médecine vasculaire)could decide whether we should go ahead with the MRV....I hope this is a good first step, and the doctor also printed out the paper of Dr Zamboni first ...

New to this site

Hi all,

I backed into this site thru Marc's Wheelchair Kamikaze site and am glad I did.

I've had ms for 12 years, diagnosed in 4 days with double vision, my only symptom ever. I was on copaxone for 8 1/2 years before I started having rumblings of ms symptoms and when nothing made them remit, I was classified as sp and went downhill very quickly.

I am now in a power chair, and have ...

Hi everyone!

So today was pretty much the return of summer here in Toronto (+30 C... I think that's like 90 F?) anyways.... long story short: My roomie and I haven't re-installed the A/C yet and I got home from work just sweatin' buckets and feeling pretty lousy. I'm going on a European trip at the end of July so i ordered some wrist wraps and a neck wrap to use while I'm there. So ...
