MS Transmission to spouse

See pubmed link. If I read this right this is saying that there are cases where spouses have given their wife/husband MS. If that is really the case that definitely points to an infectious cause...

IFN-ß users protected from West Nile Virus?

I had always wondered if folks exposed to WNV (symptomatic or not) developed immunity from it and no longer risked future illness from mosquito bites later on. After reading into this study I discovered that the natural response to infection of the flavivirus is the natural expression of IFN-B to disrupt RNA replication of the virus! Normally the virus interferes with that process to buy it time to replicate -HOWEVER- high dose sc injections 3X/wk ...

What do you do to stay well?

Hi Everyone,

I thought it would be interesting to know what those people who are well with ms/CIS do to to stay that way.

I mean are you taking any supplements? exercising? meds? diet? whatever.

I have had a CIS and waiting for an mri with contrast to most likely start on Avonex.
I'm well and symptom free thankfully but this is all very new.

Thanks

Elly :D ...

Hello, Kia Ora and Hola

Hello all,

Just found this site and seeing as it looks like a good place for info from level headed people I thought I´d join in.

After 24 years in the UK in the RAF I left to live in New Zealand for a life style change; 18 months after our arrival I was diagnosed with MS, not the life style change I was looking for but we´re still here and smiling.

Looking forward to ...

Hey Gang! Any fellas on Androgel?

Hello friends.

Been reading this board for years, this is my first post. I've been so in the closet for the seven years I've been dealing with this nonsense (I'm now 32) I couldn't even bring myself to post on a message board using a fake name. When friends (except for the closest of them) ask me why I'm limping so badly, I tell them I have a bad back. Ridiculous.

Anyway, to the point ...

hello all.

I've had close friends and a second cousin with MS and a close friend with Lupus.

I would like to be involved with research work on natural cures, but don't know where to look.

Anyone heard of esperanza homeopathic neuropeptide?

I've just received my magazine from the New Pathways publishers which is for MSers and they have included an article about the esperanza neuropeptide sublingual spray which costs a staggering £5,450. Does anyone know anything about this stuff? It looks a bit snake oily to me but just wondering if anyone had heard anything good about it.

Hi Folks!

I was first diagnosed in 1998, and was immediately put on Avonex. Well, I was on the Avonex faithfully for a couple of years, and still noticed my condition worsening. And for having lapses in insurance I was on and off the Avonex for 5-6 month intervals, up till this last Sept. Just this Year My Neurologist changed me to Rebif, which I have been on since March. I must say I don't miss the ...
