Just bought children's fish oil by mistake!

Ugh -- I bought Carlson's Norwegian fish oil and thought I was buying the smallest size so that I could try it. Turns out its children's! 800 mg. Do I just double the dose, since their adult fish oil is 1600 mg? Will I get enough nutrient from fish oil alone? Bought it because it was the only brand refrigerated at Whole Foods. I'd prefer capsules so welcome all recommendations for brands/dosing and confirmation that ...

MRI scheduled for possible MS

Hi there! I have an MRI scheduled for next week to test for possible MS. I don't think I have enough symptoms to point to MS, but apparently my doctor does! The symptoms my doctor knows about are:
- weakness and pain in right fingers, wrist and arm. Seems like carpal tunnel but it is in my pinky as well and two doctors both say it seems to be coming from my neck (I pass ...

Just starting to put together vitamins and supplements help!

I'm just beginning to organize my supplements after a recent dx of MS. I want the best quality *fresh* (cold pressed Omega-3, fish and/or flax), etc.

- Which supplements would you buy first, where would you buy them?
- How would you store them?
- And what would you add on as time went by?

I'm trying to start with a few key supplements, which I assume are D, B, Omega 3.

Many thanks, I ...

Cycling Problems with MS

Hi. I have MS and I love to bike. In the summer I’m on my road bike and in the winter I use my cycle trainer, but lately it doesn’t seem quite as easy. I’m interested to hear what problems you have when you ride and how you solve them (or do you just accept it and enjoy being on your bike). Perhaps sharing problem stories and solutions will help others who never thought of ...

What is happening to my 4 year old!

My husband has MS, was diagnosed with RRMS in 2008. We have a 4 year old that SCREAMS about shin pain. We took him to the Dr and they did x-rays that all came back neg (for shin splints or fractures). They ruled out growing pains because it is the shins and not joints. We saw Connective Tissue and they said they do not think it is a connective tissue issue. He will also tell ...

Lucchinetti pattern III and CCSVI

This is an old article but I found it just now. I found it specially interesting because CCSVI theory didn't still exists at the time it was published.

It says that the Lucchinetti pattern III could be produced by "a pathologic process similar to ischemia". The author besides hypothesizes two possible mechanisms: vascular impairment leading to defective microcirculation, and local production of toxins that alter the mithocondrial energy metabolism.

The original text: (available at ...
