Three weeks after Campath

where to begin?

Well physically things are okay.

I am definitely having a flare up. I guess the fact that I expected it, makes it a little easier to swallow. My flare ups are almost always centered around Optic Neuritis. And for the past week, my vision has been its worst since my diagnosis. Usually it only affects one eye severely (usually my right eye). However the past few weeks, both eyes have been affected ...

how did you get abx prescribed?


I have a question for those of you who are using antibiotics. The more I read, the more hopeful I am, but then I get discouraged thinking about how few doctors are on board with this-- especially for treating patients early in the RR stage of MS. I'm not comfortable with ordering them online without the support of a doctor. So, I'm curious did most of you:

Go to a doctor armed with information, ...

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli drug maker Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (NASDAQ:TEVA) Inc. said Thursday a three-year study of its multiple sclerosis drug showed slower disease progression and fewer relapses in patients who did not respond to other treatments.

Devics disease

I assume this subject has come up before but I thought it may be worth a re-visit. More than a few in my local MS chapter have been re-diagnosed with Devics and not MS. I had never even heard of this disease before. The Mayo clinic seems to be the front-runner in diagnosis and treatment of Devics. It may be worth some investigation for a lot of "diagnosed as MS" patients.

Cedars-Sinai event - anyone go?

I wish I had known about this day about MS held at Cedars-Sinai (Los Angeles). I would certainly have gone.

I wonder if the 'celebrity guest' was Montel Williams.

Does anyone know about the MS program at Cedars?
