Article on Campath

Positve, but realistic article on effectiveness of Camapth.

Buzz around Campath proof-of-concept trial in MS 16 January 2009

When news broke in October that an approved cancer therapy had, for the first time, halted the progress of multiple sclerosis (MS), excitement was tangible among clinicians and patient groups. The phase 2 study's results are certainly unprecedented in MS. But whether Campath (alemtuzumab), a monoclonal antibody (mAb) already approved to treat leukemia, actually 'reverses' MS, ...

Article on CAM

Here's an interesting article on complimentary alternative medicine (CAM) which discusses how more mainstream doctors are beginning to appreciate the potential benefits of CAM therapy.

Doctors going alternative
More mainstream physicians suggesting meditation, massage and acupuncture

I think I had an attack on Copaxone....

Sorry gang, but this might be kinda long....

I had some kind of attack yesterday morning. I have never felt
anything like it before in my life.

I had read that Copaxone users can encounter the occasional "reaction"
to the drug, even after years of being on it without having said
reaction. It usually is described as a "flushing" feeling in the
skin, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, etc. for short
time...about 15 ...

Hey y'all--

I have the first THREE mails out to study sites (Ohio). My state list is okay, as far as that goes, but not all these addresses are complete enough to include certain people (study coordinators). And sometimes even zip codes.

So... if you please, PM me the complete address of your own study site--and a name, if available, so we can get this ball rolling.

neurontin ques

I've been in a great deal of pain lately, mostly legs and feet (my arches) The neuro suggested I start neurontin.
Can anyone share their experineces with this drug. I hesitate to add another 'everyday' drug to treat a 'not everyday' issue.

Can you use it and go off it when you're feeling better? or is it dangerous to do so? ...

Ear problems

I am having severe problems with my ears. They are stopped up, the right ear more than the left and it is horrible. I don't have a cold or sinus or ear infection that I know of.

I don't know if this is MS related or just a coincidence. Does anyone have any comments or suggestions? I did not sleep at all last night and need some relief.

Thanks, CF

Husband has I overdoing it?

My husband was recently diagnosed with MS last week. He was hospitalized right before Christmas because he lost complete balance and coordination on his left side (arm and leg).

Since we received his diagnosis and he returned to work I won't let him do much at home because I'm afraid that he will have a relapse. He had a problem on Monday at work where his left arm went a little numb again. Am I ...
