Just starting to put together vitamins and supplements help!

I'm just beginning to organize my supplements after a recent dx of MS. I want the best quality *fresh* (cold pressed Omega-3, fish and/or flax), etc.

- Which supplements would you buy first, where would you buy them?
- How would you store them?
- And what would you add on as time went by?

I'm trying to start with a few key supplements, which I assume are D, B, Omega 3.

Many thanks, I ...

Cycling Problems with MS

Hi. I have MS and I love to bike. In the summer I’m on my road bike and in the winter I use my cycle trainer, but lately it doesn’t seem quite as easy. I’m interested to hear what problems you have when you ride and how you solve them (or do you just accept it and enjoy being on your bike). Perhaps sharing problem stories and solutions will help others who never thought of ...

What is happening to my 4 year old!

My husband has MS, was diagnosed with RRMS in 2008. We have a 4 year old that SCREAMS about shin pain.

Lucchinetti pattern III and CCSVI

This is an old article but I found it just now. I found it specially interesting because CCSVI theory didn't still exists at the time it was published.

The author besides hypothesizes two possible mechanisms: vascular impairment leading to defective microcirculation, and local production of toxins that alter the mithocondrial energy metabolism.

Optic neuritis on MRI 6mo later?

At the end of November, I had a major problem with my left eye. (I'm 32.) Overnight, my vision went from normal to an absolute blur. (I could see nothing on the Snellen chart.) I saw the ophthalmologist about it two weeks in, but he could see nothing inside my eye that might have caused the problem. Although that is a common finding in optic neuritis, he would not diagnose it as optic neuritis because ...
