Hello everyone

Hello,
I am new here. I will spend hours reading the great posts! I did a search, however, and did not find a response. I am sure its here because it seems a common question.

How do I know what medication I should do? My Neuroligist said to go home and read up on them and pick one. Is this normal? How do I pick one?

I know basics, like how many times a day/week ...

Heat, MS and the disease process

It's widely acknowledged that heat makes MS symptoms more noticeable.

This is generally though to be because nerves transmit information faster in the heat and are therefore more likely to misfire in the case of MS.

However I read an article which recounted a woman with MS dying whilst sunbathing. Also my first noticeable 'MS attack' occurred after using a very high powered sun bed in a poorly ventilated room with no cooling system.

So ...

Hello.

I guess it's time for me to join in. I received my "official" diagnosis today.

Question about acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, cog function

Has anyone had any luck using acetylcholinesterase inhibitors like razadyne/ aricept to improve cognitive function?

My Doc prescribed razadyne, but insurance won't cover it unless I get a DX of Alzheimers. I'm not willing to do that. I saw and article not long ago where that dx. followed someone around on health records.

I'd be willing to try it out of pocket if it works.

I do so miss my brain....
