Abuse of MS Patients?

Three years ago, I went to the emergency room with very little ability to move, lots of spasms that I'd never had before, very severe pain episodes, and no idea what was wrong with me. I was frightened at what was happening to my body, but tried to remain calm. They told me it was "just anxiety" and sent me home with a tranquilizer. A few days later I was back with the symptons ever ...

They want so bad to discredit CCSVI that they support it

A book that you shouldn't read is this one:

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... 3.297/full

To save you from loosing your time, I reproduce the abstract which says it all:

“Liberation treatment has no proven efficacy, may exacerbate underlying disease activity and has been complicated with SAEs"

But ....

If “Liberation treatment” can exacerbate MS, it is clear that MS is a vascular disease!!! They admit it.

I wonder if they will ...


girlfriend with MS has no libido

Hi All,

New to the forum and to MS. I am here posting about my g/f who was diagnosed about 10 years ago. The reason I am posting is because her libido is gone, and has been throughout the duration of the relationship. We are not sure if it's due to the MS itself or side effects from medications. She is on plethora of meds, and I am not sure what they all are. She ...

Two years are up, now what?

I have tried copaxone and rebif, but neither one work. Then, I started tysabri. It has worked great, no new lesions or relapses! The bad part is I have hit my two year mark and now have to switch to a new med. Any suggestion as to what might work the same as the tysabri?

Testing??

Hi, for those who have been tested:

--If the IR finds stenoses in multiple veins will they all be treated??? (ie. subclavian, axillary, internal mammary...) not just IJV being treated.

--Will the IR look at other veins besides the usual suspects?

--If you were able to get insurance to help you with this cost, HOW did you do that?!?!

Weird question about steroid treatment.

So is it possible to be having steroid side effects 10 months down the road?

I recently had a flare up that consisted of losing feeling and sensation from my hips down and the "ms hug". Along with all the little things like eye pain, cramping, brain fog, tiredness etc.

Now, I did not get steroids this time around and I just waited it out. All my symptoms are gone and I feel "normal" again. ...

Tecfidera or flare-up?

I am on week three of Tecfidera. Two nights ago, I started noticing an area above my right knee on my inner thigh that was burning (like the feeling of someone holding a lit match next to my skin). This sensation isn't new to me but it is new while being on medication (never had this while I was on Tysabri). The area has now become bigger so now the sensation is on most of ...
