Scare Tactics

Here is a load of "BS"....

I've never had MJ before, because I don't want to get in trouble, but if it were legal, I'd definitely try it.

But... Here is a BS article that sounds more like scare tactics than fact.

Just hit a chord

He has fought a hard battle to keep walking, which he can only do these last 10 years if he hangs onto something and not for any distance. He has shoveled dirt on his knees, laid stone, cut floor boarding, made the bed and anything else he could do from a kneeling position. His arms are strong and his mind is good. I don't want him to only walk in his dreams. I want to ...

Optic Neuritis?

I am currently enduring an Optic Neuritis attack. It led to my MS diagnosis. May 2007 I lost my sight entirely. No vision in my right eye at all. Now, 2.5 months later, I can see movement and shapes but really only in dim light. I am still relatively blind in bright sunlight. I can basically now see contrast between light and dark objects.

For those who have endured Optic Neuritis, did you recover your ...

I feel lost and scared


Since I know, that I will get the diagnosis MS in the future, I feel completely lost and scared. I am still in Limbo, but I feel weird things going on in my body.

My neurologist told me, that it is hard to call it an ...

Average annualized change in MS parameters


since a long time I'm looking for data in RRMS about the average...

I'm aware of the fact that in RRMS these parameters may change with dissease duration (e.g. 1 or 15 years from diagnosis), age or sex.
So a reasonable way would be to gether these infomation for ...

Interesting stuff if they can figure out how to get around that pesky brain-blood barrier...

Saving Neurons and Memories

Physicians can treat the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders, but there is no way to prevent or reverse the underlying degeneration and death of neurons that characterize these diseases.

The scientists have shown that a gene called SIRT1 and ...

Copaxone for ppms? (also posted in general disscussion)

Hi All:

I haven't posted for a while but I was interested to see if anyones neuro is advising them to use copaxone for ppms as mine is?

I've never had a relapse, just a slow decline over 6 years.

I have a very high degree of confidence in this group. They are researchers and only treat MS patients. It seems they believe that copaxone will provide some level of "neuro protection." This has put ...
