Incorrect Links in Subscribed Topics Emails

Just thought you should know, the links that go out with subscribed forum
emails do not work correctly because they redirect from to and the anchor at the end gets dropped. For example: ... 9933#59933

redirects to: ... ic&p=59933

(and drops the #59933 at the end of the url)

Then you need to ...

My left hand, back and abdomen are very numb, sometimes it feels like burning. I'm wondering if that's how others feel numbness and if the burning sensation is a sign of it going away. How does your numbness go away? Gradually and almost unnoticeably slow, or suddenly? I'm hoping mine will go away soon but it's hard to tell it's so slow. At first I couldn't tell if a pin was sharp or dull on ...

good one

I was having trouble with my computer.
So I called Eric, the 11 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over.
Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.

As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong?
He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'

I didn't want to appear stupid, but none the less inquired, 'An, ID ten ...

testing mice...

I boldly asked Dr Simka if we could put sclerosing foam in mice jugular veins and azygos veins to see if they get MS like lesions.

He said no because it is not possible to make an animal model of leg ulcers because the mice do not live long enough for one to develop.


So. that answers the question about how long it takes for these venous stenoses, in legs at least, to result ...

Thyroid problems and MS


I recently went in for a physical exam and had some bloodwork done. They called be back today and told me my thyroid levels were off and to come in for more tests, that this could be related to an autoimmune disorder. She asked me if I had been feeling lethargic lately. I told her I don't think I could tell the difference. I always fell tired from the MS. This thyroid deal coupled ...

Jacobs Neurological Institute

I know their study has been covered in parts of other topics. I wasn't sure where to put this, so I thought I'd start a new one. I finally got confirmation and my dates are set for September. The one thing I was told that's a bit different from what others have said is that I will get a written report of my doppler and MRI results a week or so later. I wasn't expecting ...

Shelf life liquid LDN?

Hello all,

just wondering what the consensus was regarding shelflife (in refrigerator) for liquid LDN? I have been on original prescription for 6 weeks & it doesn't seem to be working much anymore :roll:

I originally started at 1.5 mg then went up to 2 mg a week ago with no differences good OR bad...

Thanks so much for any input!
Take care,

Stopped Rebif

Well, I finally stopped taking my Rebif. I got increasingly frustrated with the injection site reactions. I have been relapse free for over two years, but I still have the daily crud we all deal with. Truth be told, however, I feel like my fatigue has been better since stopping the Rebif completely.

Today I will probably chastise a patient for stopping their medications early. Yes, even docs can be hypocrites ...

Looking for shared wisdom...

I'm newly diagnosed, and as I'm sure you all know, it's alot to take in. There's so much information out there but a lot of it is still vague or different from the other. I want to know more about MS, mostly how to better cope, help your body recover from an attack, how to deal with the symptoms (ex. what to avoid doing, what to do, etc.), how to make your body healthier and ...
