Gadolinium induced disease- NSF

Wanted all MRI receiving folks to be alerted to this condition, NSF.
We think this is what's going on with my husband's rash and skin problems. He just has his second MRI with gadolinium, and his legs are covered in purpura and very sore.

We'll have a skin biopsy done to be sure... You do not have to be suffering from kidney disease to contract this illness.

I am 35 with a husband and two children(12 and 16), I've been on copaxone for almost 10 years..But my body is a little tired..of the shot every day..so my doc said to think about Rebif?
Has anyone been where I am? Taking something new is a little scary. I'm pretty healthy with only mild lasting damage from my relapses.

Hi guys

Pardon my ignorance folks, but I need some personal experiences of ON from anyone willing to share...

I have, for about the last week or 10 days or ...

Another evidence for a viral connection in MS.

Varicella-zoster virus in cerebrospinal fluid at relapses of multiple sclerosis

OBJECTIVE: Recent studies in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) have indicated that exacerbations of multiple sclerosis (MS) could be associated with the reactivation of latent varicella-zoster virus (VZV).

METHODS: Ultrastructural observations for viral particles were made by electron microscopy in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 15 MS patients during relapse, 19 MS patients during remission, and 28 ...
