Feeling overwhelmed

The earliest I can get is in May (I also may be insane with anxiety by then). I had sudden onset hearing loss about 7months ago. The ENT sent me for a MRI to make use there was no tumour. Fortunately no tumour but ...

My colonoscopy cancelled in BC because I have MS

Here's my situation for which I'm pursuing a solution - tell me what you think.
In the middle of December 2014 I was turned down by VIHA (our local health authority in Victoria BC)  for a colonoscopy because I have MS with bladder, mobility and spasticity issues which I was told cannot be  dealt with by the facility/team doing colonoscopies at our local hospitals.

I went to hug him goodbye while he was in intensive care and he tried moving me off his leg (I wasn't near his leg-his sensations were off)-his leg moved! Soon after his other leg began to move. His body went against all the medical evidence. We were told that 99.% of the time people ...

CSF from MS patients produce "angiogenesis"

Trigeminal Neuralgia

I know it's been a while since I've been here - it's been a difficult few months!

Anyway here I am with a diagnosis of trigeminal neuralgia. I don't want it to be that and I am trying to hold off taking the carbamazepine because of the side effects. It seems that if it's caused by 'MS' there is no surgical solution, just hard core drugs.
