Huge Thank You to lyndacarol

I original posted a post "Am I paranoid? or juming to conclusions on MS" lyndacarol sent me a personal e-mail discussing B12. After 2 and half years of frustration, I talked to my Dr about B12, something we had never discussed. He gave me a shot and I have been feeling great! I know it is still early in the game to know the whole effects of this shot, but all I can say is ...

Lyme disease diminishes and evades immune response

Lyme disease subverts immune system, prevents future protection ... o?id=11254

The bacteria initially trigger a strong immune response in an infected animal, but findings from this study indicate that the bacteria soon cause structural abnormalities in “germinal centers” — sites in lymph nodes and other lymph tissues that are key to producing a long-term protective immune response.

For months after infection, those germinal centers fail to produce the ...

Crackling in ear

So for the last couple of months I've noticed a random crackling in my right ear. It's not as if it were equalizing. The sound kind of reminds me of the cereal, Rice Krispies, when you pour milk on them...that popping or crackling sound. Anyone else out there experience this?

The other thing that happened was in April. I went on vacation for 2 weeks in Maui, and noticed that I had swelling in my ...

still no diagnosis

Hello today. I introduced myself last summer and am still undiagnosed. ALL tests show nothing. Mostly through the winter I am symptom free, just a minor symptom here and there. Then summer happens.... my neurologist is trying me on Adderall to see if it helps the central nervous system. He says this is just like MS but no proof anywhere. ALS has been mentioned but the symptoms basically go away for the winter. This is ...

Sleepy Rebif--and introduction

Okay, to back track and my experience with MS--back when I was in graduate school, I developed optic neuritis. Doc said that the odds were good I'd develop MS and he put me on a run of cortisone to slow the possible development of MS. Jump ahead 20 years, and presto! Now I have full-blown MS. Still fighting to get disability, and am now walker-dependent.
Just in the 2nd step of Rebif, but fairly recently, ...
