Antibiotics or something else?

OK, I started the ABX Feb 15 - doxy 200mg once a day for now (See neuro this week and hopefully will add the azithro without too much work.)

I also upped my LDN dose from 3mg to 4.5mg on Feb 22.
When I first started LDN in Dec 2005, I had sleeplessness and very vivid dreams which dissipated after a week or two. No troubles since then at all. Since upping the dose, I ...

West Wing Worthwhile?

Hopefully, this is the correct section for such an enquiry.

The TV show, West Wing (Series 4) has just commenced in Australia. In the tv preview it stated that the President is grappling with 'coming out' about his MS, so I watched the first two episodes. However, there wasn't much focus on his MS, except for some reference to short-term memory loss. I noted that he moves around like an Olympian, so walking is clearly ...

My concerns are for the next few years. She is at the stage where ...

Black & Decker Jar Opener

I purchased a Black & Decker jar opener last year. Anyone with hands affected by MS, arthritis or other conditions may find this kitchen tool quite useful. I no longer have to ask my husband or sons to open jars for me. When I purchased mine, they were still quite expensive; however, I recently saw these jar openers on ebay at very reasonable prices.

Take Care!

Fact or fiction?

As another week ends, new visitors to this site (which covers a huge range of possible MS therapies, including abx) are re-directed to cpn-help - a site dedicated to one treatment approach. And why wouldn't new members be interested. MS is a degenerative disease and most treatments at best slow down the progress, with some treatments providing some repair / return of function (e.g. Campath - where some have experienced a small improvement in their ...
