Three month update!

Well as it was our three month check up yesterday, so I decided to post a blog about our progress. Kristin and I haven’t had much of a chance to really talk lately, so most of it will be from my experience.

My body is slowly healing. As far as how I actually feel in general. I feel better.
I used to only have 1-3 good days a week. The rest of the time I ...

pain and

I posted for the first time yesterday under introductions. I was told that this is where I could find out information on Avonex. I was dx almost a year ago officially and have been on Avonex from the start. I don't have to much trouble self injecting although it gets tiresome even though I get help from my husband if I really need it. I inject in four places on the tops and sides of ...

Looking into supplementation of creatine for mitochondrial energy enhancement and fatigue relief. Anyone using creatine monohydrate supplements?

Messing with my medication

My doc put me on gabapentin for the pain that I have been having in my legs & bum - the original does did nothing and the doubled does (600mg/day) had a little effect on the pain but nothing really noticible. I did however start gaining weight when I should have lost (am on strict diet).

I have decided (without checking with my GP) to stop taking the gabapentin to see how much difference it's ...

My story

I haven't really posted much about myself or what has happened with my Tovaxin trial, so I think this might be therapeutic for me now. Sorry if this gets long winded.

I was dx February 2007, my symptoms started mid Dec. 06, a few days after my son was born. I woke up to 20 inches of snow and numbness in both ring finger and pinkies bilaterally. In the next week, the numbness spread ...

Hi new to forum

Hi I was browsing the net and found this forum. I was diagnosed with MS officially almost a year ago. I've been on Avonex the whole time. I was wondering if anyone had problems with injection site pain. I usually never have to many issues with self injecting, but 2 weeks ago I did a side of the thigh injection which I've done many times before and I'm still having pain and it's sore to ...

is Bungee Jumping dangerous for MS ?

I've diagnosed with MS last year and now I'm symptom-free and wanna Jump from a 40 meter bungee. Is this very dangerous for me? Does it increase the risk of another attack? Is there any previous cases of relapse due to jumping stress?
Thank you so much in advance.
