Agent Orange and it's relationship to MS

I am a Vietnam Veteran and have been diagnosed with MS over 3 years. Due to the VA's "7 year rule" I cannot get compensation for my disease. The "7 year rule" has no basis other than if you do not have a diagnosis of MS within 7 years after your discharge from the service you do not qualify for compensation. I am trying to go back and link any symtoms I had after my ...

New Diagnosis

Hello everyone,

I'm was diagnosed with MS on June 20. It's been a real shock, because although I've had problems with extreme fatigue, weakness, muscle aches, twitches, blurred vision, dizziness, and difficulty with concentration and memory, and have been worked up for everything under the sun in the last five years, (or so I thought), nobody ever mentioned MS. I went to the doctor in June with what I thought was the worst sinus headache ...

For years, Sarah Moore endured slurred speech, difficulty moving and constant exhaustion after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1975.
Desperate for any way to stop the disease's progression, the former teacher was the first user of Deskar, an investigational drug developed by Dallas pharmacologist Solomon B. Margolin and tested by neurologist Dr. Jonathan E. Walker, medical director at Neuroscience Centers in Dallas.

Now Moore, who had to use a ...

Cladribine

I recently received the following invite to apply to take part in a clinical trial and was wondering if anyone had either heard of it or had any views on it.

The CLARITY Study


It’s about the freedom to choose the treatment that works best for you. That’s why researchers are studying an oral form of an investigational medicine (a tablet) to determine whether it is safe and effective in treating relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.

Physical Rehabilitation and MS

I know I have probably whined too much on this site about the state of MS drug development and the usefullness of existing drugs. I'll probably continue to complain about all that. In the meantime, however, I have been seeing a few interesting articles about physical rehabilitation in MS patients. I became interested about exercise when I saw on TV a few months ago a show about a man in his 60s with Parkinson's disease ...

simple question

Why don't they prescribe anti-inflammatories like naprosyn or ibuprophen to us? They use steroids to stop the inflammation if we have an attack. They like the anti-inflammatory effect of many new drugs. They are trying to stop the damage of the inflammation of the myelin....
We use anti-inflammatories when people have migraines so they do reach the brain.
I may have missed the explanation before I joined this forum. I will ask my neuro on ...
