Cycling Good For Spasticity ?

Cure O

On some thread I think you said you wanted to get rid of your spasticity.

This abstract suggests cycling (no resistance) might help with spasticity.
This provides converging evidence for the anti-spastic potential of acute unloaded leg cycling in individuals with MS.

I tried it when I had spasticity and found the spasticity lessened significantly after about 10 minutes on the machine.

My spasticity seems to be history for the moment ...

Estrogen Induced Neuroprotectio (article available)

Sorry, this is so late but some one (probably sharon) posted an abstract of a research article with title Novel Mechanisms for Estrogen Induced Neuroprotection. I subsequently obtained the full 8 page article, unfortunately only in PDF. If anyone wishes a cc please pm me and I will send to their email (i.e. I'll need an external email address)

Just found out I'm pg, what amount of vits to take?

Hi
I'm just delighted, found out I'm pg. Was on Copaxone, but had a hunch I was pg so I gave it up about 6 days after conception, so I'm not worried about that.

I'm taking a general pregnancy multi vit/mineral.
But I'd also been taking 1,000 mcg Vit D - should I continue? Or is that too much during pg, does anyone know? Am taking calcium too, but I will continue that as on ...

Phentermine and Brain Damage

Ok, here I go again... A week before I ended up in the hospital for MS (June 05), I had been taking a weight loss drug called Phentermine. It was very effective. I stopped taking abruptly because I thought its effectiveness was wearing off and I was tired of the head-ache it was giving me every night when I "came down" off of this drug. Next week: I am in the hospital. I told my ...

Question about Tovaxin

I have a question about Tovaxin since I am thinking about participating in the clinical trial. I have seen that some people here are participating in the clinical trial and must have had a chance to have their questions answered. I don't know much about the immune system and I was wondering if it was possible in theory for the Tovaxin vaccine to not only destroy myelin reactive T-cell but to destroy all T-cell in ...

Studying OPCs

Interesting

Movies reveal that the process of insulating nerves is surprisingly dynamic
17.11.2006

Much like the electrical wiring in your house, the nerves in your body need to be completely covered by a layer of insulation to work properly.
Instead of red, white or black plastic, however, the wiring in the nervous system is protected by layers of an insulating protein called myelin. These layers increase the speed that nerve impulses travel throughout the brain ...

Cerebral Spinal Fluid Data

What is the significance of Glucose in CSF testing? Does anyone know? What about Protein? In June '05, when they took a sample of my CSF, the results were: CSF, GLUCOSE = 75; Reference Range=40-70

CSF, PROTEIN=42.6; Reference Range=15.0-40.0


Just curious if anyone knows anything about that?
