I didn't want to keep hijacking Lew's gratitude thread, but I didn't want to let this die yet, either.

"Come to my house and listen to the proposition."
"Does this entail me dressing up as Little-Bo-Peep?"

"You'll be wearing rubber gloves. Do you own rubber gloves?"
"I rent 'em. I have a lease with an option to buy."

I'm new here and battling to get right answer (not yet diagnosed).
I posted in the Introduction (you can read my story if you wish).
Question is:

I found out that coffee increased symptoms. Even with no caffeine (is there really no caffeine?). Is the caffeine the culprit itself or what does coffee (may be vaso-constriction).

- Shaky hand
- Increase of paresthesia
- The effect was delayed in time

Am i right? do ...

Tomorrow I have to go back to work so I was nervous about ...

I have been watching this site for roughly 6 mos. I found this site by googling Dawsons Fingers. Otherwise I would not have found this site. I'm passing the word! I find the group forums exciting, knowlegeable and very friendly.

I was originally mis- diagnosed w/ RRMS in 2000. at that time my symptoms were not severe and the Neuro went with the stats. 80% of the MS pop have RRMS and the rest = ...

Letter from Baxtor

Dear Chris Young:

We appreciate your interest and enthusiasm regarding cyclophosphamide, a life-sustaining and well-established chemotherapy agent.

There currently is ample supply of cyclophosphamide, and Baxter
continues to make it available to its customer base, including Accentia,
the makers of Revimmune. It’s important to note that the intended and
approved use of cyclophosphamide is as a chemotherapy agent, and Baxter does not currently have approval for cyclophosphamide’s use in addressing multiple sclerosis (MS). However, as ...
