New with questions

I'm so happy to FINALLY found an unbiased website community of those affected by MS! I was diagnosed 1 year ago and am on Rebif. I feel like the MS LIfelines nurses just have a script to read and are only serving the drug company. They call me about every 3 months or so (when it's time to re-order more) and always ask if I have had an INFECTION-what gives? After a while, I feel ...

breathing question

Question for all, and I have no idea if it's MS related or not. I want to find out if others have experienced this. It's not really that big of a deal, but an annoyance.

You know those 'deep breaths' you take every so often (usually after a yawn) where you just breath way down until your lungs feel filled? There are times throughout the day here recently where I can't get the last 10% ...

I am just trying to make you all knowledgable about therapeutic devices!! The Neuromove costs $165/ month for 3 months and then $99/month for 55 months!!

I have researched this device and it will make you ...

Switching from Copaxone to ???? Per new doctors orders

Just wanted some opinions here. I'm 29 and have been seeing my MS Dr for about 5 years (since I was dx). Recently, he decided to take a job at Stanford so now I'm seeing a new Dr. My old doctor really pushed Copaxone and I seemed to do well on it. I felt like he was very trustworthy. I've only had a few minor issues but am still doing well. Recently my leg is ...

Started Novantrone

I started Novantrone this past week. My MS was progressing so fast, and after 18 months of Betaseron, my doctor felt it was time to add another drug. I am 37 years old, and I am physically healthy--weight, bp, etc.

I would love to hear from people who have taken this drug, and I have noticed strands of my hair are starting to fall out. Losing my hair is a small price to pay to ...
