Medicaid and Rebif

Do you have Medicaid and take Rebif? How much is your co-pay? I got a call from MS lifelines today and there had been a bit of a mix up, stating the wrong insurance (I go to Dr.s through the University here, but there is also insurance for their employees of course) and had a co-pay of $50 a month. Well, right now I have NOTHING. Trying to get a job but no luck so ...

Herpes treatment advances - not directly MS related

Was poking around for info last night and found a few interesting things... none of this is breaking news or anything.

Bayer AG - research - Herpes virus is a pdf of Bayer's report on developing Herpes treatments. Obviously it is heavily biased and is probably a few years old but still quite informative. For instance: two different versions of the virus hide away in the body, one typically in the inner ear/temple part of ...

Efficacy of Disease-Modifying Therapies Review Study

Our objective was to compare the clinical efficacy of currently approved first-line DMTs in patients with RRMS, applying an evidence-based medicine approach. We reviewed all phase III pivotal trials of DMTs. Six clinical trials of Avonex(R), Betaseron(R), Copaxone(R), Rebif(R) and Tysabri(R) in patients with RRMS were identified for analysis. Only randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind studies were included. The clinical efficacy endpoints compared were: proportion of relapse-free patients at 1 and 2 years; annualized relapse rate at ...

Etiquette ?? in the Dr office

My nuerologist is sometimes in a wheelchair other times on crutches. This has offten time made me curious. He is a wonderful guy and I like him alot. He has never volunteered what his condition is to me. My question is would it be wrong of me to ask? This doesn't make a difference to me so maybe I shouldn't. It is just something that I have wondered about since my first visit almost two ...

Zoloft & Brain Zaps

I know this might sound crazy (ironic since I'm talking about Zoloft) but here goes anyway. I tried to stop taking my daily Zoloft pill. After about three or four days I began getting these strange sensations in my head. It felt like electrical zaps. After a few weeks I couldn't stand it anymore and started taking the Zoloft again. The zaps went away when I started taking the drug again. What's up with this? ...

Burning mouth

Is driving me crazy! This was almost completely gone during my steroids treatment and a bit after, but it's slowly come back.

Anyone else dealt with burning mouth before? It can be pure agony. I get the burning in the mouth, esp. on my top right side and my cheek feels like it's on fire (on the inside), my tongue feels like a million bees are stinging it, and my lips can feel a slight ...

Update on me

I just finished 3 days of IVSM for an exacerbation. I found out that my MRTCs were negative on the April 1 blood draw so I will have to wait the 90 days.

Since I just had an exacerbation and IVSM, I will have to re-sign the consent forms to continue in the extension study.

I guess the good news is the MRTCs are negative... :)

Now ...
