My Two Year Follow Up HSCT

Just returned from Chicago for my 2 year exam. I received a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation under Dr. Burt at Northwestern as part of his clinical trial.

I am on no MS medication and have had no new lesions or relapses since my transplant. I started at a "4" on the EDSS scale; was a "1" at my 6th month follow up, and am still a "1" EDSS today (have minor balance issues that I ...

Kirsty Duncan wins Etobicoke again!

Kirsty Duncan has worked tirelessly in Opposition as a Liberal MP in Canadian Parliament, on behalf of all Canadians with MS, and put forward a private member's bill to support CCSVI. Now that her party has formed a majority government, we may see this Bill become a Liberal government Bill, and law of the land.

Thank goodness we are finally rid of Stephen Harper. Good luck to Justin Trudeau.

I don't know what to do.

(I posted this in a different forum but deleted it upon noticing it would be more relevant here)

To abbreviate a very long story, I am 26 and last March I had a severe bout of weird left leg heaviness. When I finally got in to see a doc a few days later, it had improved a bit, but he also noted that I had mild foot drop and was lacking a lot of strength ...

Poisoned by Peroxynitrite.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post and not a topic for those on day 1 learning about MS.

I suffered a severe wound in an industrial accident.
The wound was contaminated by the inocuous chemical Sodium Nitrite.
In an attempt to save me from amputation the wound was washed out with Hydrogen Peroxide during debridement operations.

According to my studies Sodium Nitrite + Hydrogen Peroxide = Peroxynitrite

Peroxynitrite is i understand the cyclic culprit ...
