Life after pulse roids

In a few weeks I have a follow up with my neurologist. This will mark a year since I switched to him and he changed my meds to Avonex with pulse Solu-medrol every month. I feel that my current therapies are benefiting me significantly when compared to my disease activity prior to changing therapies . He mentioned previously that he would order the pulse roids for a year or two. In case he does not ...

My daughter

This post is for all of you who were so kind and supportive of both my daughter, Suzy, and me-- Jimmylegs, mormiles, lyndacarol, moonwolf, sh8un, wino, anecdote (Sarah), etc. I have an exciting update! (For those who were not so supportive, you will probably want to skip this post—no more fights, please!)

I have sent private emails to most of you, I believe, with the results of Suzy’s visit to her MS specialist this past ...

Could it be?

MacKintosh wrote:In different people, it manifests differently. Sometimes it gets into the brain and becomes MS, sometimes the joints and becomes rheumatoid arthritis, sometimes chronic fatigue syndrome, high blood pressure, etc.

If this is true then all the other research and drugs are just a mistake. All the people that are trying these drugs must really wonder if they are doing the right thing. For someone just starting out they have the neurologist telling them ...

Minocycline + interferon?

Anyone have any thoughts on the (theoretical) cumulative efficacy of combining minocycline and interferon? I found one study suggesting that the combination increases efficacy in EAE, but EAE is such a poor model of MS.

I'm particularly cautious given the recent study showing that combining statins with interferon significantly reduced the efficacy of both medications, with fairly poor results. On the other hand, I'd like to add minocycline, given that I think it probably offers ...

Nanotechnology and spinal cord repair

I found the link to this article on "ms news" submitted by art. I very much like the fact that it contains plenty of healthy caution, even though the subject matter could be very exciting indeed. Nanotechnology has already cropped up once or twice with regard to MS, and this approach of combining it with standard medicine seems to hold promise.
The subject of scar tissue is one which is very important to me since ...

Greetings from Europe and waiting for tovaxin to start there

Hi everybody and congratulations for this very interesting forum.

I'm french and my girlfriend was recently diagnosed with MS. (we're both 22) My whole world was crushed away in two weeks as many of our life projects were questioned because of MS.

I started searching the Internet all I could find about the disease, especially treatments, and I eventually heard about Tovaxin, which seems to me very promising. Unfortunately, we're french and there's no tovaxin ...

I am new to this forum

My name is Carrie. After 3-1/2 years on 3 mg of LDN, which I began taking right after being diagnosed with MS, I had a serious relapse. My new doctor is a top MS neurologist. He treated me with steroids and I'm now taking Gabapentin for pain and spasticity. I'm feeling a lot better.

Here's my question. I'm seeing the neuro again at the end of June. He wants to put me on one of ...

Q-Cells

Another one I haven't heard of before. Not sure of the clinical applicability, but interesting to say the least:
