MS mom needs medicine

Dear all,

First of all I want to express my admiration for your courage in facing MS and your kindness in supporting the patients.

My name is Hadeel and I have created this account on behalf of my mother "Hedaya" who has been diagnosed with MS in 2007.
We are Palestinians from Gaza, but my mother lives in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and I am currently studying in Germany.

In July 2014, my father ...

Walkaide 20-100 for sale

I have a Model #: 20-100 Walkaide available for sale. It was purchased for around $5000.
I have used it for approximately 3.5 years. It is in very good condition and works perfectly. It has worked well for me and I have had no issues. My disease has changed and I need to look at other options. Otherwise, I'd still use it happily.

Tecfidera and certain foods causing flushing

Has anybody experienced flushing from certain foods such as tomato sauce or lemonade? I think it is the acid in these foods that is causing me to flare up. Could be nitrates as well. I had some summer sausage and it seemed to cause a flare up. Odd!

Good news story (18 months on Tec)

Hi all,

just thought i would post a good news story to motivate those who may be struggling with Tec. When I started it i was hit really hard with the side effects - stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, intense flushing, itching, even hives. This lasted about 3 months for me but i was determined not to quit as i had already been on copaxone and after continued relapses and lesion formation through the 18 months ...

When I sleep (even a nap), my leg gets so stiff that it is a total struggle to get to the bathroom. I stretch and exercise ALOT. I am progressive. Is anyone like me? This is so stressing. :cry:

Ok, call me crazy but is this my answer? Candida overgrowth?

For background, go here general-discussion-f1/topic26400.html

I found out about this last night and maybe I am crazy, but this just fits way too well to be the culprit. This would explain everything down to even my bad acne break outs.

I went through two steroid treatments, one late 2013 and then early 2014. Shortly after those treatments I have had weird mucus and often a dry mouth. I also, ...

Hello ThisIsMS

Hello Folks,
My first post. I've been considering joining a site like this and finally decided to do it. I was diagnosed about 3 years ago. Had many 'episodes' before that where I would have numbness. Fell down a couple of times. I finally woke up one morning and my shoulder was throbbing. Went to the doctor and they advised to go to a surgeon. Long story short, I had a shoulder surgery after an ...

Diet - gluten, etc

Hi everyone and thanks for reading this.

Some background might be useful. My mother and my sister have been diagnosed with MS. I also have a 2nd cousin (male) with MS and a great grandmother that had MS. I have a first cousin with autoimmune hepatitis.

I have had GI issues for about 12 years, which I originally thought was lactose intolerance. I quit dairy but still felt bad, but not as bad. About 5 ...
