Relief for Burning Leg?

Hi All~

I've been posting here a bit over the last few weeks. My partner was diagnosed with MS back in February and he is currently on (and doing well with) Copaxone. In any event, the one constant symptom he has is a burning/painful right leg. He doesn't want to go on any prescription meds for it at this time as he doesn't find it to be debilitating, but we are curious about any supplements ...

participating in drugs trials - thoughts?

I have just discovered a local company that are doing trials of new MS drugs and are looking for participants (paying nice money too). What are your thoughts. Has anyone been involved in trials? What are the risks?

Failing that they will still pay money for my blood! I finally found an upside to MS!

Reactivation ?

Hi , just wondering if any pf the patients that have had this treatment AND copaxone relapsed ?

This is the data I REALLY want see

It's going to be quite interesting to see what happens, because copax was rock solid in preventing an MS "like" disease in mice.

Anyone currently trying 4-Ap?

Since my greatest disability is walking I decided to give 4-Ap or aminopyridine a try for some symptomatic relief. It was prescribed for me at the dose of 5mg TID. Has anyone had any luck with it? How long did it take to notice a change? I just swallowed the first pill today so I know I have to be patient.

This disease is so cruel. Spent the last four years worrying about walking. Now having an attack that's left nerve damage affecting my hands. They're weak, uncoordinated, and hyper-sensitive simultaneously. F***! 3 days of IV prednisone improved the symptoms from unbearable to awful. Whoopidy f***in doo! Showering is an adventure. Wiping my ass is harder than astro-physics. (Sorry). It's been three weeks. I'm a desk jockey; never thought an I'd have an injury resulting in ...
