"Corner Gas"

This has no connection to MS, except that even we folks with MS need to laugh once in a while. And I did this afternoon!!!

WGN (Chicago TV channel) showed episodes of the very funny Canadian program called "Corner Gas" for about 4 hours. I had not seen it before and I loved it! I laughed and laughed; it felt good.

I recommend this program!

I got a Power Port

I had my 17th infusion on Friday, 2/1. It was my first since getting a power port placed (surgically) in my right chest. I must say, my infusion was able to start sooner since my infusion nurse could just access the port instead of searching for a vein in my arm or hand.

Piece of Tysabri trivia. My nurse said that the Maxine Messinger MS infusion center in Houston where I go is among the ...

Hi! I am Jyn.

I found this site last night after searching for troubleshooting tips on my Rebif auto-injector (I posted my issue under the Rebif subject) and I have enjoyed reading the many posts and articles.

I was diagnosed 3 years ago when I was 29 years old. Mostly my vision has been affected: Optic Neuritis, Double Vision, Vertigo. Otherwise, this disease has definitely played havoc with my cognitive abilities. Have you heard of ...

Problems with Auto-Injector

I have been on Rebif for 2 weeks. Everything has worked fine until last night.

I loaded the syringe into the auto-injector, and as I pulled the cap remover off, the entire syringe went flying across the room (fortunately no one was hurt). OK, just one syringe wasted.

I decided to try a second time, thinking maybe it was user error. The same thing happened again. OK, now I'm pissed, I just wasted two.

I ...

Disability and T2 lesions: 20-year follow-up in RRMS ... stractPlus


Clinically isolated syndromes (CIS), such as optic neuritis, brainstem or spinal cord syndromes are frequently the first clinical presentations of multiple sclerosis. However, not all CIS patients develop multiple sclerosis and in those who do, disability is highly variable. In previous follow-up studies, brain lesions on T(2)-weighted MRI are associated with increased risk of multiple sclerosis and to an extent disability. We evaluated the longitudinal ...

Bone marrows stem cells convert to oligodendrocytes
The group harvested stem cells from the bone marrow of mice and humans, then inserted them into the brains of mice with a disease that closely resembles MS in humans. They found that the stem cells changed into several different kinds of cells: most importantly, many converted into cells called oligodendrocytes,which manufacture 'white matter'.
But the experiments suggest only areas of fresh damage might be treatable. In the mice tested, the loss of myelin appeared ...

LDN newbie

Hi Managed to get a prescription from my Doctor for LDN and will hopefully start sometime next week. Iam starting on 3mg liquid format.

Thought this was going to be mission impossible to obtain but fingers crossed no problems so far.
First I asked my Neuro about LDN and he stated that there is no evidence or findings of its treatment and also mentioned that it is only available in 50mg tablets, but had no ...

Molecular Mimicry-thanks, NHE

Thanks for the explanation, NHE.

In my year of studying, I had not read such a clear description of this process. It must be frustrating for the elders on ThisisMS to have to continually answer newbie questions. I appreciate your time and patience and repetition.

The real irony in all of this is that my husband is actually OK with his diagnosis, and is dealing with it. He's ...
