Just diagnosed

Hi,

My name is Nicole. I was just diagnosed with MS a few days ago. I woke up with a numb face 2 weeks ago and called my neurologist (luckily I already had one because of migraines) and had an MRI Wednesday. Friday I was in her office staring at 3 lesions and talking about whether or not I wanted to start medication. She's giving me the option so I guess that's good. She said ...

when does an attack 'end'?

hey all.

so my attack started on january 23rd/24th, and got worse and worse until january 29th. then the long slow climb back started.

The young man was given 4 months to live (last year in May). His mother found this doctor in the Netherlands (I had read ...

(Others) Thoughts on different MS (RR & SP)

The following link had the following explanation, which i personally hadnt read before, and it made sense to me for the progression from RR to SP. dont know if it is still scientifically valid (if it ever was....)
The authors, Prof Compston and Coles of Cambridge, UK, concluded that axons were withering (transecting) due to a loss of trophic support from oligodendrocytes even in the absence of inflammation. ‘Trophic support’ describes the process whereby oligodendrocytes ...

LDN compounding and the right places

I have only read through some of the various comments. I just wanted to say (or reiterate) that it is critical that a recommended compounding pharmacy be used because of the extremely low amount of actual Naltrexone in a 3 - 4.5 mg capsule. Basically it is about 16% if I calculated right. The best compounders, such as listed at www.lowdosenaltrexone.org (not ".com"), need to be used mainly because ...
