Sore Nose


This is my second time on Rebif and each time I get a very sore nose. I know this sounds silly, but I dont know what it is. It hurts to even touch the tip of my nose.

Has this happened to anyone before? If so, what is it? What can I do?

G-20 summit

I'm not sure if I heard this correctly as I only had the television on as background noise while I was playing a computer game. But, I thought I heard a news anchor mention how the Obmas were not invited to the big dinner. They were to attend a "working dinner". I guess to multi-task. Michelle Obama was to sit next to the author of "Harry Potter". I can only imagine what that conversation would ...

Theory involving Nitric oxide

I have been thinking about the relationship between Nitric Oxide and its role in MS.

I have seen various studies that suggest that NO blocks the nerve signals and is inflammatory but is reversible.

L'arginine is involved in the formation of Nitric Oxide. I don't know whether the NO is formed because there is too much L'arginine or what the process is.
I do know however that Lysine is antagonistic to L'arginine so maybe by ...

Uncertain - Please Help?

Hi, folks.
I haven't been officially diagnosed with MS, but under the circumstances, I am starting to believe that I have it. I've been going to a neurologist for 5 months and he hasn't been able to figure out what is wrong.

I've been doing a lot of reading and from the looks of it, some people with MS can go undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed for a while. I guess I just want someone else's opinion. ...

Sea-sickness/Motion sickness and MS

Does anyone have any problems with sea-sickness and their MS? I have never really had a problem with that, but I know that I do get car-sick if I am in the back seat or trying to read. I also have balance problems and slight issues with vertigo (both symptoms of my MS). It has been quite some time since I have been out on a boat in the middle of the ocean. The last ...

The Promise of Stem Cells and Myelin Repair

President Obama’s lifting of federal restrictions on the use of embryonic stem cells in scientific research has generated considerable news coverage and many questions from our supporters about the impact of this reversal on our own research.

While MRF research to date has not involved embryonic stem cells, we are working with more ...

Getting an MRI monday

I decided to get a new MRI. I had this disease for over a decade and a half. Always considered RRMS, but not sure if the most recent MRI will show any enhancement so I have to admit I am a little nervous. Funny I used to be worried I would show active lesion, now I am worried I might not.

At any rate, I thought I would start off getting an MRI to see ...
