3 months in

I went for my 3 month checkup today. Unfortunately I didn't get a neurological assesment but it would only have confirmed what I know. Since treatment my condition has definitely improved. Prior to treatment I was assesed as EDSS 4.0, in my own judgement I have improved by at least 1 EDSS point since treatment, probably more. Hopefully these improvements will continue.

A sobering note to the proceedings was that one patient on the CAMMS223 ...

Regrowing nerve fibres

Dear all,

Attached is an article from the UK paper 'The Times'. Its about regrowing / repairing dead / damaged nerves. The article is about Parkinsons but says that the treatment should be applicable to other conditions involving the CNS. It's probably early days but another glimmer of hope for the future.

Dear all.

At the end of May 2005 the UK MS Society held its annual research conference. The focus of the conference was neuro-protection (a recognition that tackling attacks / inflammation alone was not enough. It's still early days but there are signs that some trials are beginning to take place). Fingers crossed that some effective treatments are delivered in the future. One of the ways they will test for effectiveness is to measure if ...

Antibiotic Regimen

I've been on the regimen since January 05. So far, nothing really to report, although my leg spasticity has been getting progressively worse. Has anyone else noticed the same? It would seem that 1) this could be as a result of the regimen and is a passing phase 2) it is totally unrelated or 3) the antibiotics may be having a long-term adverse effect (I read on the BBD site that antibiotics can contribute to ...
