Campax vs Tysbri

My physician provided me two options for treatment Tysbri and Campath. One FDA approved and the other not. One covered by ins and the other possibly not. When I asked my physician which one he would choose for his family member if they were in my shoes he chose Campath.
Are there any reports compairing Campath and Tysbri?

Anyone's insurance paid for Campath outside of a trile?

My Doctor has prescribed Campath in order to stabilize my MS? I have heard of only a few insurances that have paid for the treatment since it is not FDA approved at this point.
If your insurance did approve Campath how did you do it?
If your insurance did not approve Campath, how much were you out of pocket per year?

Anyone out there with their Brainstem affected by MS?

I have experienced neurological symptoms since 2001. However, I did not receive my diagnosis until Dec. 2007. My MRI showed significant damage to my Brainstem. It does explain my tachycardia and neurogenic bladder.
Has anyone experienced Brainstem damage?

Texas Barbecue Sauce

Hi all

Just had some best buds to stay in wildest Africa with me for a month (they live in Houston, Texas), and someone (sorry, can't remember who, think it was Gwa?) told me I should ask them to bring me some Texas Barbecue Sauce, and I just wanted to say thank you - it is the BEST!

Abnormal Sleep Cycles

Hi all-

Just wondering how many folks can include irregular sleep in their bag of MS goodies?

My hubby had never slept well...always had to listen to music or talk radio to fall asleep, didn't need more than six hours. Had an "over-active " mind. Never had regular sleep habits (I'm an eight hour 10pm-6am gal, so it became a joke in our family) He was also a snorer and thrasher, and a major blanket ...

I went and picked up my lab results yesterday but am not seeing the dr until monday and wanted to see if anyone knew anything about this-

I was releived to see there were no o-bands- is this pretty much a definite as to no ms? I know some people with ms don't have them, but it's a low percentage, right? I haven't gotten the mri results and only had one lesion on brainstem back ...

Occ Health Nurse a moron?

I had to see Occ Health nurse at work today as I requested permission to park in visitor bays because the main car park is a 10 minute walk from my office - which I can find tricky.

The nurse went all out and then told me that in her opinion it probably wasn't MS at all but the numbness / weakness I was having in my R arm is probably due to a whip ...

Strange study

I was looking for the full text of a study about birth monthe related effects in MS (hypothesis about sun exposure during pregnancy), and I found a strange abstract from the same author : "Origins of magic: review of genetic and epigenetic effects". After googlization, I found the full text :

Quite funny, but I hope no medical resarch funding has been granted for this...

Professional and personal dental care is required to keep te

Personal dental care is very essential. If normal brushing is not done properly, bacterial plaque builds up.

Dental plaque is a soft, sticky, colorless film of bacteria that is formed on the teeth. The bacteria multiply rapidly in this film and can cause infections. The dental plaque has to be removed within 10-14 hours by brushing or else it hardens to form calculus or tartar. Once formed, calculus cannot be removed by normal brushing but ...
