Tysabri in Northern California

Hi, I'm new to the forum.

I just got some great advice from Lauren and wanted to pose my question to all of you Californians, as well:

My sister is young (33 yo) and has MS. She lives in Northern Calif. She is on Medicare and trying to find a good Medicare insurance provider. She is on Tysabri and since she is young we are finding all the health plans are expensive - can you ...

A year on abx...

Well it's actually just over a year but's been a great year, diagnosed 5 years ago, every year since then I've had at least one relapse a year and never had full recovery after but since meeting Dr Wheldon and starting the abx around late November last year I've had no relapses and better still I definitely have had some improvements.

Restless legs that kept me awake at night are no where near as ...

May I just say …

Wherever you are in the world; whether you have a religion or not; whether you "do" Christmas or not; whether you have two weeks off or two days; if you're a pagan celebrating the winter solstice, whatever, it's a magical time of year and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and unfailing hope and optimism for the coming year.

Personal Provigil Experience

Today was my first day on provigil. I took 100mg at about 10am and another 100mg at about 12:30pm. After about 20min of taking the second dose (ie before it probably was assimilated), I actually almost had an afternoon nap! It really felt like I had taken a sugar tablet (ie no effect). A little later I went out to do the chrissy shopping.

Surprisingly, I was able to stay out walking around the shops ...

Imagine the solumedrol highs without the side effects

Ok, I must be dreaming because this n-acetyl glucosamine has got me bouncing off the walls with goodness.

This morning I had two teaspoons after last nights one teaspoon; today mixed with orange juice instead of hot tea.

The first hour after consuming this morning's, I had slight paranoia and slight anxiety (sort of like last night, but a little stronger with a higher dose). This feeling reminded me the paranoia feeling of marijuana.

BUT, ...

Brain plasticity

Learning to see with your tongue.

Most of us see with our eyes, but what if we could see with other parts of our body, too? The idea may seem ridiculous, but it's already been done. Nearly a half-century ago, maverick neuroscientist Paul Bach-y-Rita discovered that it was possible to "rewire" the adult brain, connecting regions in ways no one ever had imagined. Today, his ideas have given a handful of blind people the ability ...
