Back to say goodbye

Relief with Hypericum?

I recently had another attack of numbness and tingling on the entire right side of my body (excluding my face). After meeting with my homeopath I took hypericum, and two weeks after I started to take it - the symptoms disappeared 100%. Compared to my previous attacks, which lasted minimum 5 weeks and haven't recovered 100%, this attack cleared up fast! I am curious if others have used hypericum - a natural remedy to ...

Lower Back Pain Qnd Restricted Movement?

Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I have been having lower back pain which is not bad when I am not moving. But I am finding it more and more difficult to do things like bend over or twist around. My range of motion from my waist is becoming greatly compromised.

Happy with my appt today!

So the last appt I had, I "appeared" to be "normal" because I had taken my pills and visible symptoms were masked. So today, I did not take my meds before going to the dr and I was a trainwreck! I felt like I was being dismissed as nothing was wrong so I wanted him to see what happened to me when I didn't take them. He was in shock I think. Completely baffled and ...

Caring for my RRMS fiancee : challenges


My fiancee of 3 years has blocked me out and pushed me away, due to stress from arguing over the course of the past year.

She was diagnosed with MS over 10 years ago. It went into remission after a hard 9 months. We have been together since 2009 and have been deeply in love nearly from day 1. MS resurfaced in late Summer of 2012, after putting in a notice at a stressful ...

When is it NOT MS? Are my symptoms MS-like?

When is it not likely to be MS? In other words, when someone has their first symptoms, what features of the symptoms make it less likely to be MS? I’ve read that when initial sensory symptoms are quadrilateral (essentially all over) it would be highly unlikely to be a MS lesion. Is this true? I’ve also read that when first sensory symptoms quickly come and go by the minute and roam around it is less ...

Categorisation of MS relapse subtypes by B cell profiling ..

Categorisation of MS relapse subtypes by B cell profiling in the blood

Introduction: B cells are attracting increasing attention in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). B cell-targeted therapies with monoclonal antibodies or plasmapheresis have been shown to be successful in a subset of patients.

Here, patients with either relapsing-remitting (n = 24) or secondary progressive (n = 6) MS presenting with an acute clinical relapse were screened for their B cell reactivity to brain ...

Can Multiple Sclerosis be affected by diet?

The first prospective population-based study of dietary patterns and risk for multiple sclerosis (MS) has found no relationship between eating a high-quality, healthy diet and a reduced risk of developing MS.

One caveat was that the study focused on current diets in adults only, and it is possible that diet in adolescence may be more important regarding risk for MS, it was noted.... Read More -
