Copaxone and Cancer?

Someone very close to me was diagnosed with cancer and had previously been taking copaxone for two years. Nobody thought there was any connection. However, Teva seems very interested. Which is provoking this question. Has anyone else out there had a similar experience?

Spinal vs brain lesions?

Has there been any discussion on if CCSVI is more related to brain lesions than spinal lesions (or VV)? I have no brain lesions, only two C-spine lesions.

As I continue to hear of Cladribine's push towards approval, it occurred to me that I haven't really heard a lot of discussion here about it. Has anyone taken part in the trials? The data seems impressive to this point.

I hope a doppler will be a good first step

I was at the vein doctor today, getting my spider veins done, when my husband's GP phoned to have her do an "echodoppler couleur de veine jugulaire interne et de la veine vertebrale" on my huband. She said after looking at that, the doctor (specialty:angéiologie, médecine vasculaire)could decide whether we should go ahead with the MRV....I hope this is a good first step, and the doctor also printed out the paper of Dr Zamboni first ...

New to this site

Hi all,

I backed into this site thru Marc's Wheelchair Kamikaze site and am glad I did.

I've had ms for 12 years, diagnosed in 4 days with double vision, my only symptom ever. I was on copaxone for 8 1/2 years before I started having rumblings of ms symptoms and when nothing made them remit, I was classified as sp and went downhill very quickly.

I am now in a power chair, and have ...

cooling clothing - i was a skeptic but now....

Hi everyone!

So today was pretty much the return of summer here in Toronto (+30 C... I think that's like 90 F?) anyways.... long story short: My roomie and I haven't re-installed the A/C yet and I got home from work just sweatin' buckets and feeling pretty lousy. I'm going on a European trip at the end of July so i ordered some wrist wraps and a neck wrap to use while I'm there. So ...

what are the likely interventions?

Hi All -

I've been wondering about what the possibilities are for interventions if the MRV does show problems. I apologize if this information is detailed in one of the earlier threads, but I think when I was reading those I wasn't understanding things as well as I am now.

So Jeff and Marie had similar surgeries and stents, but it sounds like it could be, likely will be, different for others of us. We'll ...

white count 6600!!

OMG, the nurses couldn't believe it. WBC went from 730 to 6600.

And my neuts went from 29 yesterday to 3334 today!!

I could be gone from here early next week. Only need 3 days with counts over 1000. Today is day 1 of that.

But I will say this - I was in terrible pain last night, could barely walk - even had to call the on-call IPOP doc.... was a reaction to the ...

Nine Weeks Post Treatment-NC

I am nine weeks out of HiCy treatment (in NC) and just finished my third week of PT (going twice weekly). I wanted to check in with you veterans and see if where I'm at sounds "normal" to everyone.

I too experienced some issues with increased spasticity beginning about two weeks out of treatment. However, since I have a baclofen pump, it was fairly easy to rectify. The neurosurgeon simply increased the dosage over a ...
