Halls Vitamin C Drops – Why an MS warning?

A couple years ago I noticed that Halls Vitamin C drops have a warning on the package that the drops shouldn’t be taken by people with MS. I used to keep them on hand to take if I was tired or felt a cold/sore throat coming on. Plus, it seemed like an easy way to get Vitamin C. Then one day I happened to read the warning label, and I haven’t taken them since. This ...

Seeing an opthamolagist, any hints?

From another thread.
EyeDoc wrote:As an aside: The OCT is a wonderful tool for measuring the thickness of the retinal nerve fibre layer. This is the layer that carries light signals into the optic nerve which allows us to see. OCT is currently covered by insurances and used for diagnosing and following glaucoma patients. There are other disease that can affect this layer, including MS, but medical insurance coverage is not complete. Irregardless, I do baseline OCT ...

It is the first time that scientists have turned skin cells into induced pluripotent stem cells or iPS cells -- ...

What phase of testing is revimmue in?

If I read correctly revimmune is still being tested and they are doing randomized testing? Anyone know what phase they are in and when and if this will be available to everyone?

I find it crazy that we can get tysabri and soon campeth and some other IV drug which in my opinion seem to be far more dangerous yet revimmune is not offered to us in the same way. Can anyone explain to me ...

I Started an MS Blog

Well, it's actually an "MS blog" as well as a "wheelchair blog" as well as a "me blog". But I guess that's what blogging is all about.

The response to the video I posted last week was so positive that it pushed me to finally enter the blogosphere, something I've resisted for a long time.

Please check it out, and tell me what you think.

Another exacerbation

Hi everyone,

Well, I hate having to report this, but it appears I am in another exacerbation. This is my second once since treatment in July. As you know, the first was in December and according to the MRI there was activity.

I saw my local neurologist on Friday...and according to the exam and symptoms present, it definitely appears to be a new exacerbation and not just continued from December.

I have weakness/numbness on the ...

95% sure i'm choosing Tysabri

Hello everyone,

in the midst of a relapse right now (haven't had symptoms or meds since 2006)

My neuro think Tysabri would be the best option for me since i've had bad experiences with other therapies.

I'm still scared of possible risks vs. benefits... but need to start thinking long term.

Any comments? experiences (good and bad)?

Many thanks,
