FDA Rejects Medical Marijuana

Hi all

Just saw an article in the Washington Post FDA Rejects Medical Marijuana

WASHINGTON -- The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday that it does not support the use of marijuana for medical purposes....

contradicts a 1999 finding from the Institute of Medicine, part of the National Academy of Sciences, which reported that "marijuana's active components are potentially effective in treating pain, nausea, the anorexia of AIDS wasting and other symptoms, and should be ...

numbness/tingling

I have numbness/tingling in my left hand, leg and foot. I've had this since I was dxd in May 2002. I have been on Neurontin, which worked well to control it but caused weight gain. I was then on Topamax which thankfully caused weight loss but didn't do as well to control the numbness/tingling and made me feel a little "spacey". I am now on Cymbalta which is working well for the numbness/tingling symptom but ...

Biogen Sponsored Talks

I'm interested in attending an MS talk sponsored by MS Active Source (Biogen). I was wondering if anyone has been to these Biogen sponsored talks and what their experience has been. For example, are they actually informative, i.e., are they willing to discuss CAM treatments and other experimental therapies, or are they just reiterating the message that can be found in the CRAB literature?

Thanks, NHE

Family/Celiac/multiple sclerosis

Not terribly exciting. But I was recently in contact with my brother, a rather infrequent occurance, and communicated to him that I may have MS, as useful family medical information. He responded that he has recently been diagnosed with celiac disease. That means three of four siblings in my family have a confirmed autoimmune disease. And my mother died two years ago in a confusion of conflicting diagnoses including RA and Lupus. Anyhow. I believe ...

Genes

Her goal: Put MS out of business

Martha Crowninshield brokered high-stakes business deals all the time as a venture capitalist.

But never before had she been involved in a deal with a payoff that could help millions of people worldwide. Crowninshield is a major player in a landmark effort to search the human genome for genes that put people at risk for multiple sclerosis.

There's no cure for MS today, and even with the ...

Harry Potter

Dear all,

I've always thought that we would need a wizard to crack this disease. J K Rowling is helping fund an MS research centre in Scotland.

Apology to Sharon

In a response to another post on a different thread I made a sarcastic comment which, in retrospect, did nothing but contribute to the problem I was supposedly addressing: to promote a healthy community of discussion and information sharing. I apologize for this to Sharon and any others effected by it. Every time I "dash off" quick internet responses I find I may yield to impulse rather than thoughtfulness.

Sharon's response, however, contained other concerns ...
