Are enhancing lesions necessary for Campath??


I've gotten the OK from my oncologist for HSCT!

I have an appointment Thursday with neuro to discuss it.

But I'm trying to get a back up plan and a back up for my back up plan.

I do not have enhancing lesions. I'm afraid THAT's gonna stop me now. UGH!

Are enhancing lesions also a requirement for Campath......HiCY.........Revimmune??

Thanks!! :)

I'm 41 y/o male. I was diagnosed with MS back in June, 2014. I don't have many symptoms. I have neuropathy in both feet. It doesn't hurt but there.

VEP (Visual Evoked Potential) and Occipital Neuralgia

Does a VEP help in confirming Occipital Neuralgia? Has anyone else suffered from Occipital Neuralgia?

I've experienced symptoms consistent with Occpital Neuralgia for two years, but never knew what to call it. Just discovered what it is, and am wondering if my upcoming VEP would shed light on whether it is something I am suffering from.

(Please no vitamin B12 stuff on this post, TIA).

Overwhelmed with nutritional/vitamin information

I'm not a very good patient. I eat Taco Bell a couple times a month, I eat burgers, I drink beer... something tells me this stuff isn't on any of the preferred MS diets.

I want to eat right and keep myself held together as long as possible but unfortunately I can't sort it all out. There's so much information. Nutrition-wise, there's the Swank diet, the Wahls diet, the Real Man diet, the Paleo diet, ...
