Hormone link - wish I would have known.

I am writing this note because 20/20 is hindsight, and if what my experience is teachng me might help someone - I would be grateful.

I was diagnosed n 2005. My husband and I had two healty children. My Ms came on quickly and strong, but settled down and was responding well enough to copaxone when we decided to have our third child. I stopped all meds in mid 2007, and we concieved our baby ...

Strange reaction - from the Copax?

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. About a 1 1/2 weeks ago (Wednesday night) I did my Copaxone injection manually in my left hip. The site was sore, but by the next day, it was fine. Thursday and Friday I didn't feel anything there. But starting Saturday afternoon, my hip go very tender and I noticed some swelling in my left groin, which was tender also. I went to my primary care ...

Need Help

My wife is in the hospital in a small city with meningitis apparently contracted through her MS baclofen pump. The pump was surgically removed and she is being treated for bacterial meningitis, although they can't grow a culture. Their baclofen withdrawal plan seems very funny to me. She has had a small brain infarct and her kidneys are failing from the antibiotic. She is cycling through different awareness presentations every day.

Question: does anyone know ...

Antibiotics don't work on MS?

Gosh, you'd think, as quiet as this topic has gotten, that antibiotics don't work. You'd think we slunk (is that a word?) into the night, ashamed to admit defeat to MS. You'd think none of us had improved on the Stratton or Wheldon protocols and we just stopped posting, because we didn't want to admit it publicly.

superoxide dismutase

Once again I believe I have had a bad experience from superoxide dismutase (glisodin). After the most exciting and revolutionary postings on the venous obstructions by Dignan et al I hastily decided to resume superoxide dismutase, despite its consumption being strongly associated with a relapse in February 2008. My thinking was that I had venous sclerosis and superoxide dismutase is good for atherosclerosis so...
Anyway once again this pill seems to have triggered a mini-relapse. ...

Virionyx- MIS416

Need your help. Has anyone heard of this? I have been asked to participate in trials in NZ. Apparently they have had good results with this drug. I spoke to a lady who was treated and she has had good reults. She could not intially stand, was wheelchair bound and could not lift her arms above her head.

She can now stand and lift her arms up.

Any feedback welcomed.
