Source for 4-aminopyridine

Ampyra and 4-ap are out of the question here in Japan.

I'm forced to order my own and compound it myself.

Does anyone know of a good source?

Thanks a lot.

Private MRI scan - head or spine?

Hi all,

I have suspected MS but diagnosis is taking forever on the NHS. I've been given an NHS MRI appointment for late January, so have decided to pay privately to get it sooner.

My question is, should I pay for a head or cervical spine scan? Of course ideally I'd do both (my NHS scan is for both) but doing both privately is tad expensive for me as a post grad student!

My idea ...

Stopping and starting back up?

I've been taking Avonex for around 6 years now, without missing a dose. Up until a few weeks ago, that is. I just moved to Japan, and, due to all the red tape, it has taken longer than expected to get everything taken care of. I met with a doctor here that is willing to prescribe Avonex for me. He said, as long as I got back on it within 3 months, it'll still be ...

Hi guys, I haven't been on here in a while. I've been struggling with extreme fatigue lately and just wanted to ask if anyone here has tried anything that helps. I used to find caffeine helpful, but the fatigue has been so bad recently I've had to consume way more of it, which ends up keeping me up at night and making the problem worse the next day. ...

High protein diets increase cancer risk via IGF-1

This might be interesting news for people on Paleo diets. High animal protein diets were linked to a 400% increased cancer risk in people aged 50-65. They also experienced a 75% increase in mortality. The high animal protein diets also led to a 500% increase in diabetes mortality regardless of age.

Hi all,

I am not diagnosed with MS. I have had 6 concussions in my life. MRI and CT scans from 2 years ago show white spots on the right side of my brain.

I moved and got a new neurologist. He said in the coming months he wants to test me for MS via blood work and spinal tap.

I've read that brain injuries can double the chance of MS.

My symptoms are chronic ...

Normal MRI but symptoms...

I have been having these symptoms for the last 4 months:

Lhermitte's sign when turning head or rolling eyes, optic neuritis with eye twitching, numbness, tingling, extreme fatigue, spine and low back pain, muscle weakness/fatigue, stabbing ear pain without infection.

I had an MRI, brain and cervical w/wo contrast and both came back normal. My neurologist wants to see me back in 6 months to check things again. I had a feeling that this would ...
