Questions from a new LDN user

Hi everyone, just looking for a little info. I started taking LDN 3 weeks ago, 3mg. In the first 5 days I noticed numbness in my hands and feet fading. It was great I could actually feel with my left hand. :) In the last week though I've noticed the numbness creeping back in the hands and feet. Is this normal, will it go away again? I ...

Shingles after Tysabri

I developed shingles a couple months after having Tysabri treatments. I understand that a person is more suseptible to developing shingles if they have had drugs that suppress the immune system. I want to know if anyone else has developed shingles after Tysabri or if there might be a link at all. If so I'm wondering if it would be such a good idea to resume Tysabri treatment if it becomes available again.

Calling "Life on the Ice", please read and respond

Calling the female physician with MS who maybe was posting somewhere else last year under the name of "Life on the Ice". I may be completely wrong here, of course.

IL-12 seems to implicated in MS, and this abstract refers to agents to control IL-12 production. I recently read something in Pubmed about quercetin (found in apples among other places I think) having an effect on IL-12. Anybody know of any other drugs / supplements that could have a beneficial effect on IL-12 for PwMS?

Busy Germans

Dear all,

For those interested, I attach links to three recent research papers (summaries). The summary findings are way above my head but the sense I get is that there is a real acknowledgement of how complex this disease is, but also the sense that some progress is being made which should, in turn, lead to better treatments.
