4 infusions so far

I had my 4th infusion today and thought I’d put my 2 cents in. I have not had a great improvement or any that I can really put my finger on. I guess I feel somewhat better. It is hard to tell if that is just the MS doing what it does best, that is changing like the wind. I did manage to aerate the lawns this weekend without the usual feeling of crushing fatigue. ...

Waiting for diagnosis


I am a 32 year old white male and I am currently undergoing several neuological tests. My symptoms include: headaches, extremely week legs in the AM, numbness in legs, lack of coordination, dizzy spells, pain in hips, back and side, extreme fatigue, and spells of confusion and inability to properly form sentences. I am awaiting results from blood work and an MRI/MRA. My father was diagnosed when he was younger than me, his first ...

Another D'oh!!

More food for thought I received an email today stating:

"Upon receiving a google alert today regarding Tovaxin and not reaching endpoints etc etc. I thought I would see what Tim had to say….guess what “” is now a math site. Where did Tim’s blog go?


Hoping yours doesn’t go anywhere should the high dose stuff you’re on fail to perform. (of course I root for anyone who has the guts to try this ...

This is interesting....

- ARR for Tovaxin-treated patients was 0.214 as compared to 0.339 for placebo-treated patients. Consistent with ARRs seen in previously conducted clinical trials for Tovaxin, this result is at the lower end of the spectrum of documented relapse rates demonstrated in controlled two-year clinical studies of currently marketed products (range from 0.2 to 0.9).

- For patients who had an ARR > 1 in the year prior to the study, Tovaxin demonstrated a 55 percent ...

MS-esque, or not so much?

Um, no, I'm not seeking a diagnosis from strangers on the internet. Just looking for a reality check on a couple symptoms - does this sound MS-ish, or not so MS-ish, in your experience:

I get kind a stiff/numb feeling in my right side extremities, and it seems like some of the time the trigger is related to muscles in my back. (Maybe; that's my guess). For example, if I'm out walking around, relaxed and ...

Botox Injections For Blepharospasm - My Opinions

Botox Injections For Blepharospasm / Hemifacial Spasms - My Opinions

As a matter of fact, I have received 3 therapy sessions of Botox injections from a neurosurgeon for my chronic medication-induced involuntary uncontrollable non-stop rapid eyelid-twtiching / eye-blinking at a very exorbitant cost of U.S 5000 dollars each from an expensive private medical centre located in my home country (one of the less-developed ones in Asia) before I have actually got it gradually and totally ...

Can anyone explain?

I was on the trial for one year. I had a MRI at the end of the year and they said I was out of the trial. The doc said only two reason for that: either a bad reaction or not benefitting. I had no bad reactions so...

I thought I was doing well on it. My question is: why wasn't I given steroids and allowed to continue on the treatment? I have read posts ...

Opinions on clinical trial

Hi all,

I've been recently diagnosed (about a month and a half ago), and was told to pick a DMD. I live near 2 fairly well known hospitals with MS centers, and looked into what trials they had. One hospital has several trials for which they are recruiting. I shied away from the trials which have a placebo group, and came up with two possibilities. One is the Campath trial, but unfortunately it is the ...
