Less lesions, still unsteady

Hi all, I've been feeling less steady on my feet, so I went to my neuro, had a brain MRI and it showed no new lesions and that some of the lesions were actually shrinking. I've been on Avonex for 2 years. Can symptoms appear without lesion activity? Or are the lesions likely to be down my spine?

LDN and pain relief

Hello, this is my first post. I have read many positive results with LDN for MS, but the one thing that is holding me back is how to get needed pain relief such as with a surgery or injury. I just had rotator cuff surgery and have had to take a narcotic (oxycodone) for pain relief, don't know how I would have stood it without this pain medication. My question is; If you are taking ...

A question about Prednisone for the women

I feel kinda silly asking this, but anyways...I've been on Prednisone for about a month now and my period is a little over a week late. Could this be an effect of the Prednisone?

So very tired all the time

I'm a 48-year old self-employed husband and father of 2 young boys. I feel so very weak... so very tired all the time... so pitifully short of what I want to be. Because of this fatigue sometimes I feel I should no longer be driving. Provigil might help some, but it certainly does not bring me back into the normal range. Caffeine does not awaken me enough, either. I'm discouraged wondering if this will pass ...

LDN and sleeplessness

I have been on 4.5mg of LDN since June 3rd. Before beginning LDN, I slept eight to nine hours a night. Now, I sleep approximately six hours a night. Once I awaken, I can't go back to sleep. I'm not really any more tired than I was with eight to nine hours of sleep. I am just curious if anyone else has experienced a shorter sleeping pattern once they started LDN.

Recommend a neurologist?

Are doctors' names appropriate to post in a forum? If not, perhaps responders could send me PM instead.

I live in "the boonies" where my neuro is certainly adequate but not "cutting-edge." For peace of mind, I'd like to seek alternate opinions about my MS and my therapy. I have numerous opportunities to travel to Seattle, Salt Lake City, and Denver for business purposes. Can those of you who live in those areas recommend an ...

Biogen/Elan delay release of Phase III Antegren data


This is probably not a major development. They are still on course to get it approved at the end of the year in the US. The article does mention that there is speculation that this might be a sign that an antegren/avonex combination study is not yielding desired results.
