What Can I Expect at My Neurologist Appointment?

Hi Everyone!

I am anxiously awaiting my neuro appointment and was wondering if you can give me an idea of what a typical first appointment with a neurologist is like. I have kept a journal of my symptoms and have a copy of my labs and a disc of my MRI. Will there be tests at this appointment? How long does the first appointment usually last?

I work in orthopedics. I realize that not all ...

new shellfish record!

i finally did it. i am not there with the clam and oyster chowder yet, but i ate clam chowder (at 30% standard clam density) and a single smoked oyster (wrapped in bacon). this 'struggle', associated with the quest for concentrated nutrients via small whole food portions, is occurring almost 4 decades since getting beaten up for not wanting to try shellfish at a restaurant. fwp i know. but be nice to your kids, folks.

How do you handle MS and a stressful job?

So I was diagnosed about 6 months ago, pretty much after the very first symptoms displayed. (I got a numb hand and was convinced it was MS enough to demand an MRI, and turned out I was right). I have been on Tecfidera since then, and haven't had any further relapses that I can definitely identify. But as such a new diagnosis I am still very stressed about it, worried about what it could all ...

Pretty Sure I Have MS - Does Fatigue Get Better?

Hey, so new to all of this but curious of a few things about MS.

The basic gist of my story is as follows:

I have been experiencing fatigue for a while, maybe 2-3 years. If I'm sitting and not actively engaged (say in a college class or a boring work meeting), I almost literally cannot stay awake. I used caffeine to cope.

This didn't set off major signals because a) I've never been on ...

Is calcium carbonate intake harmful?

Hi there,

Following the vitamin D protocol also means taking a lot of water and reducing the calcium intake.

I would like to know if this means also avoiding "calcium carbonate".

For instance, here in the UK the government regulations demand that flour used for baking bread should be enriched with calcium carbonate (between 235 and 390mg of calcium carbonate per 100g of flour).

These 235-390mg of calcium carbonate translate directly to 235-390mg of calcium ...
