injection# 2

Hey All,
Although I have been trying to curb my time spent "in forum" (I am finding the less immersed I am the better my denial works), I thought I would post an update. I had my 2nd series of injections on 8/3/07. Pretty standard stuff. No site reactions either time. I do however seem to get ill post injection. A few days of flu-like symptoms and a serious case of done-in even from an ...

Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease

People new to MS often ask what they can do. I think an understanding of history is important in every situation. To that end, I recommend that everyone start a library concerning MS and I think this book, Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease by T. Jock Murray, OC, MD, is a good first acquisition.

It starts at the beginning with recognition of the disease, lists names and contributions of scientists, and offers a ...

Oh God, help, please!

I am getting married in 7 days, and yesterday I developed a sore throat which today has spread to my lungs. I'm pretty certain it's flu virus.

Everytime I get the flu, I am bed-ridden for days. I am devastated :(

Nothing is open, I don't know where to call. I want to know if I can take antivirals while taking Rebif. I've scoured the net - ...

Are mornings bad?

I was just curious if it is common to feel the worst right after you get up in the morning. I was dx'd in 2001 with ppms and as it has progressed, I have noticed that the mornings are brutal. I have strange shuddering symptoms and this profound sense of illness that goes away after I "wake up". For me thats about 2 hrs. This disease produces such different symptoms in each person you never ...
