cytoxan therapy

I've been all fo the FDA-approved drug therapies and received no positive benefits. My neurologist mentioned Cytoxan and I really like the idea of that. He also wants me to use Copaxone with it.I'd be game, but I'll have to pay almost 2k a month for that. That's cost-prohibitive for us. I'd like to hear from people who've used Cytoxan alone or with another affordable drug.

LDN study and fibromyalgia

A research doctor at Stanford University has ran a small trial of LDN and fibromyalgia. The video is about 50 minutes long- I found it to be informative. The content on LDN is about 45 minutes into the video - you can fast forward to that point. It is great to know that another University is studying LDN - too bad it was not with MS but great for the "fibro" patients

MRI Results - opinions

I've only been at this about a year, so I'm a rookie compared to most here. I just got my latest MRI results, so I thought I would ask opinions. This MRI showed a new small spot (don't know exactly the size) in the frontal lobe of the brain, as compared to the MRI 6 months ago. My MRIs up til now have shown no changes (3 in the past 12 months). No lesions, including ...

Heart Palpatations?

This is my sixth week on Rebif and second week on the 44mcg. I took my shot last night at 8pm, along with an Advilpm, went to bed at 11 and woke up at 1am. I had the usual chills, burning eyes and achy shoulders but as I lay there, I felt my heart beat normally for a few ticks then give a giant thump, this continued for several more hours. I woke my husband ...
