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% ...

paying for the Neuromove

The best part of this device is that it can restore walking instantly!! Also, when you are thinking about payments, they are accepted for three months; if you want to send the device back, no further payments are necessary!!!

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 ...

"Exercise pill" AICAR

No direct relationship to MS, but, given my fascination with insulin, I found this sentence in the CNN article interesting:
AICAR stimulates muscles to remove sugar from the blood, noted Laurie Goodyear of the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.

Hot flashes and Rebif

Does anyone else have this problem?

I went to my GYN for checkup and had them do blood work for pre menopause or menopause. They called to say my hormones were no where near even pre menopause. So it must be the Rebif. I go to my neuro on the 11th so I can share the news and see what he says.

These hot flashes are horrible. They drain all my energy. MS Lifelines nurse ...
