Elderberry syrup

Has anybody used this when you have a cold/flu? There is a warning on the directions to make it that says people with an autoimmune disease should not use or be careful as it boosts your immune system and ours is already overactive. Makes sense, but it also isn't studied as it's a homeopathic remedy.

Bariatric surgery and Tecfidera

I am about to start Tecfidera, and I am currently on a waiting list for bariatric surgery (Roux en Y or possibly gastric sleeve).

This is a long shot, but has anyone else gone through this procedure while taking Tecfidera?

I feel like I'm walking into catastrophe. My neurologist is very uninformed about the surgery, which is fine except that he's quite nonchalant and not inclined to do any research to help me - yet ...

Can MS start so suddenly and briefly??

So I was in the hospital last night for an 'odd' episode. I'm female in early 30s. Good health.

I was standing in a shop, standing squarely, facing forward. Feet firmly planted. I had not just gotten up or anything. I had been looking at an object for a few minutes.

Suddenly (and it all happened in about 15-30 seconds) my left leg started side stepping repeatedly, making my stance wider and wider. In those ...

Relapses but not MS

Is it possible to have the relapse/remission like effects but not Multiple Sclerosis since it's a hard disease to diagnose? I thought what distinguishes it from other diseases are the relapses and remissions.
