Don't go to the Cleveland Clinic for MS

Just had an appt. today at the "prestigious" Cleveland Clinic after recently being diagnosed with RRMS. Went to see Dr. Cohen who reviewed my MRI's, history, etc. and, as expected, confirmed the fact that I have MS. However, the Dr. wouldn't even entertain the idea of prescribing LDN and in fact became visibly agitated when I mentioned it. I am convinced that many neuros are simply drug pushers working for the drug companies. They tried ...

Campath trial results

Dear all,

This should be in the Campath 1-H section but I thought it might be best to highlight it under general discussion. Campath looked very promising in terms of reducing relapse rates etc but initial trial data from the Phase II trial shows that there are very risky side-effects (wouldn't be MS if there wasn't!).

I went to see Dr Coles (based in Cambridge, England) to see if I could get on the trial. ...

Perhaps it is time to step up

On previous posts, I mentioned that I am taking Minocycline. I started with a regiment of 100mg twice daily but cut back the dose and now only take 100mg once a day due to breathing problems while lying down at night. This past week, I decided to go back taking the antibiotic twice a day. Once again, the previous night I experienced a 10 minute time of breathing difficulty. Could this be a good sign ...

Feel like hit with a bat

Hi all,

I started the minocycline 5 days ago. (100mg the first day and then 50mg from then on). By day 3 I felt like my body had been hit with a baseball bat, especially between the shoulder blades. I am also very tired, but the good news is that my son is in school all day now so I can rest when needed.

I just don't get it 3 days into it and I ...

MS and the contraceptive pill

Dear all,

Another piece of research - apparently using the contraceptive pill cuts the risk of getting MS by half. What about doubling the dose - would it cut the risk altogether? What should men do?

I don't want to offend our Roman Catholic members but the risk of getting MS must be pretty high for nuns - no contraceptive pill and not much vitamin D (covered up in those black robes most of the ...

Black holes

Dear all,

I'm not talking astronomy here - unfortunately, it's what this vile disease does to us. As usual bigger studies are called for (got to keep those researchers employed) and the interferons may have limited efficacy in terms of black holes (yet Biogen's revenue from Avonex last year topped $1 billion - do they offer refunds if it doesn't work?). The need for neuro-protection is called for (as ever).


Interferon does not affect ...
