Tman’s antibiotic journey.

In 8/04 I had Lhermitte’s sign and numb fingers. 10/04 had MRI with 3 lesions on brain and one spinal cord lesion in the neck area. The lesion in the neck was enhanced, but there was no enhancement fluid used for the brain MRI. I had a spinal tap that came out negative. The neurologist said I had an 80% chance of getting a MS diagnosis in a year or two.

I had developed another ...

The truth about the drug companies, Marcia Angell

I just finished reading The Truth About The Drug Companies, How They Deceive Us And What To Do About It by Marcia Angell, M.D. After reading this book I felt that it was important for me to share my impressions of it with the MS community here at ThisIsMS.

New Research Grants

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has a new list of recently funded research projects (spring2005) appearing on their site. Link to the actual paper:

http://www.nationalmssociety.org/pdf/research/NewResearch.pdf

I didn't read through the whole paper but the general idea I got was......... lots of very specific research (too focused).

If this has already appeared here, I apologize, I must have missed it.

Faith in Aimspro

Having read the last post from Finn. I am wondering where this person gets all of their information. They seem to know everything about Daval. I don't think so? Daval has never ever charged any patient for Aimspro. Daval is a small company who has a product which they and a lot of eminent professionals in the medical world believe in. Daval has shareholders who have invested their savings with the belief that Daval has ...

"Anecdote's Personal treatment Regime" additions

If you look at the first of my postings in "Anecdote's Personal treatment Regime" in the Regimens section, you will see that I have made some additions to the supplements list. These are in no way compulsory, but I have found them very beneficial, especially when you get onto the metronodizole. It means you don't have to take so much of the other supplements as well!

Also, coming soon, new paper from Vanderbilt.

MS Week: 10th - 17th April 2005


Yes this week is MS Week in the UK. I'm not housebound, I do watch the TV, listen to the radio, read newspapers and the net but I've seen doodley-squat of this anywhere except on the UK MS Soc website. http://www.mssociety.org.uk/get_involved/fundraising/ms_week/index.html

I gave a pluadit today to the MS Soc (http://www.thisisms.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=1091) but the MS Week initiative seems to me to be pathetic. Anyone else from the ...
