Does anyone get extremely dizzy?

Hi,

I was taken off Rebif 2 weeks ago and have felt fine. All of a sudden the dizzyness I felt before going on medication is back. Has this happened to anyone and if so did your Dr do anything?

I'm nervous because my Dr said each relapse requires hospitalization for steroids, but I don't know if this would require steroids. Please share any information with me.

Thanks,

Samantha

Mesenchymal stem cells

I saw this article title in Pubmed:

Regeneration of myelin in multiple sclerosis. The role of mesenchymal cells in such regeneration and in myelin formation in the peripheral nervous system.

Sounds pretty interesting to me. It's the kind of article that is relevant to the mesenchymal stem cell research that's being done today. The source of the article?

Neurology. 1966 Apr;16(4):364-72.
Feigin I, Popoff N.

Yes, 1966!


Anyhow, I was digging around for info on ...

WalkAide

Has anyone tried the new nerve stimulator that helps footdrop, improves circulation, etc.? I saw it in the MSQR magazine. It's with Rx only, so you have to talk to your doctor about it and see if it's right for your situation. I was thinking that it might help me to bend my ankles allowing me to get up and down stairs easier. Right now I walk very stiff-legged and I can't raise my foot ...

When will we see the First Oral Drug Approved?

I know there are some of you out there who have a better understanding of this than I do, so lets hear your predictions. I know we have oral laquininod, oral cladribine, fingolimond (FTY720), teriflunomide, and oral fumarate (BG12) all in the late stages of trials, so which one will be first? Also, which one do we think will be the best? Dave
