Radiographer not happy with scan, Have to have another eek

Hi I had an MRI last Wednesday and was expecting the results in 7 days.
I have just had a phone call from the hospital at 8pm tonight saying they are not happy with the quality of my scan. I'm really worried now, I have to go to another hospital on Thursday and have another one done.
Does anyone know what this might mean. I have not been diagnosed yet but my gp is very ...

LDN' primary usage?

Well, My Dr. doesn't really have a problem prescribing LDN but the problem is finding it. After calling all our local Pharma's we could find nothing but standard Naltrexone dosages of 25 and 50 mg. Which led my Dr. to wonder why(?). What was the original target of LDN, who makes it and so on. I do have the # in New York to order but would love to know the answer to my Dr. ...

MS and/or Sjogren's


I'm new to TIMS, but not to MS or other boards. I was dx'd 9 yrs ago with MS. Have tried ABCR and Novantrone, the latter being the only effective in slowing progression. Still, I had lots of other symptoms that couldn't be explained away by MS. My GP is both MD and naturopath with the added virtues of dilligence, ears for listening, and a great big heart. After 7 yrs and about a ...

Medication Questions.....

I'm trying to get a handle on MS medications. Is MS one of those diseases where you have to find the right combination of medications for each individual? The last thing I feel like is having medications make me feel whoopier than I already am!

Other than researching medications/discussing tx options with dr./and pinpointing my worst symptoms/what else can I do to prepare for the options of medications that are out there?

Do most MS'ers ...

Not New to the Board or MS

Hello! I think it’s about time I got my nerve up to post on TIMS. I’ve been a stealth member for almost 3 years now. I check in very often, and I’ve learned A LOT from everyone here. I found this board soon after I was diagnosed in April 2006. Jeez, was that ever a surprise! Before my first and only episode (although looking back, I now recognize other minor flares), I was the healthiest ...

oral treatment podcast

This podcast covers the five oral therapies farthest along the clinical trial process (cladribine, fingolimod, teriflunomide, BG0012, laquinimod). There is some interesting information. I think it was just recorded in the last couple of weeks.

Keep in mind that is sponsored by Teva, so there are a few gratuitous references to copaxone.

Teva to produce biogenerics

Generic-drug maker Teva Pharmaceuticals and contract drug manufacturer Lonza Group have formed a joint venture to make and market copies of biotech drugs, the companies announced Tuesday.

Teva and Lonza provided no financial details of their new arrangement, but the companies said the joint venture will seek to develop so-called biosimilars, also known as bio-generics, which are copies of drugs made from genetically engineered living cells. By comparison, most drugs sold by large drug companies ...
