Seeking advice on how to proceed (symptoms suggestive of MS)

It's always difficult to post something like this, but i'll try as i could use a bit of support and advice.
I have been having MS like symptoms for about three years, but they were always mild and i was in graduate school as they were progressing but didn't have time for anything other than school if you know what i mean.
I have another condition known as primary spinal stenosis which also progressed at ...

When to start Ldn

I have been recently diagnosis with MS (though have had symptoms for a couple of years, but never underestimate the power of denial huh?), i am making my plan now as to how to best deal with this. Of course, i will do everything in the natural kingdom, diet, supplements and everything that has shown to be of benefit (including acupuncture, chiropractic and massage). But i also want to use chemicals, though sparingly. I have ...

Hi Everyone,

I saw my neurologist for the 1st time this past Wednesday. Unfortunately, she was not the type of doctor I want taking care of what may be a very serious issue. The highlight of the appointment was when she told my husband to open her office door and go down the hall to tell her receptionist that she needed another prescription pad.

Apparently, detecting these venous stenoses in living people has become possible only recently. Admittedly I have no clue what goes on in an autopsy, but it seems reasonable that such a stenosis would be easy to see in that setting.

Hasn't the history of MS research included numerous studies involving autopsies? So if CCSVI is closely associated with MS, why didn't the correlation become apparent a long time ago?

(I'm trying to be a critical ...

back and neck massage causing flair up of symptoms

Even prior to learing about the CCVI theroy related to MS I have always felt a connection between getting a back and/or neck massage and having flair up of symptoms. Once a year I go to a spa with my colleagues and I always have a relapse after. I always found it to be strange and just thought that maybe it was from the heat in the sauna or hot tub but last time I ...

New and wanted to say thanks!

Hi everyone! This is absolutly the best forum out there for people with MS and their families. Thank you so much for all you do with the moderation and all the extremely intelligent MS material/research. I am 30 years old and was diagnosed with MS 3 years ago. Thankfully my symptoms are very mild and the only reason I was diagnosed was because I work in the medical field as an audiologist (hearing and balance) ...

David's story update

David is a Campath recipient who set up a website to share his experience. Partly as a result of his diary I went for the Campath option. David has updated his diary - May 2009 update. Thankfully, he has nothing to report and seems to be doing very well.
