Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.


I recently had an episode of uncontrolled "shivering." I would shiver and shake for maybe 10-15 minutes, then it would subside for a while, then come back. This went on all afternoon and evening. When I woke up the next day, it was gone. I don't even know if it was M.S. or something else, since I don't have the flu or cold or anything else.
I do not take DMDs.

Thoughts, anyone?

Doubt about cannabinoids and fingolimod


I'm a diagnosed MS patient for around 7 years or so. I've been taking Interferon B1a, first 44mu and now 22mu throughout all this time.

Around a week ago I discovered I had another relapse and the doctor recommended me to start with Fingolimod. But the first thing I did after that was checking Wikipedia and got to this quote:

Fingolimod has also been reported to be a cannabinoid receptor antagonist

Does that mean ...

Dr.Purita - Marrow-HSCs regenerate // Fat-MSCs imunomodulate

Quoting Dr.Purita (Boca Raton), as quoted on AdiStem site: ... stemcells/
Bone marrow supplies the much needed hematopoietic stem cells which are the drivers of tissue regeneration, while the fat provides the mesenchymal stem cells which drives immunomodulation which is the step needed before regeneration

So.. it follows that the below process by AdiStem
is incomplete. It requires followup with bone marrow HSCs.

Emotional lability

My mother was diagnosed with MS- relapsing/remitting in 2009. She's been very active in finding the best treatments possible and has tried her best to not allow her diagnosis to affect my family (I am 22, my sister is 20, and my father). However, over the past year or two it has become very apparent that her emotional stability is beginning to waver. I have not lived at home in 4 years so it's been ...

New to MS forums...

This is my first MS forum I've ever been on, so I don't really know what to expect. My mother, a nurse, was diagnosed with MS-relapsing/remitting in December of 2009. I was 18 years old and a freshman in college so I didn't really care/understand what this diagnosis was going to mean for my family. I'm now 22 years old and a month away from graduating from nursing school. I'm now MUCH more aware of ...

IJV Blood Flow Linked to Disability

Hi all

Came across this study of 58 people with MS and 13 healthy controls that found an association between IJV blood flow (wash out rate) and disability levels.

Internal Jugular Vein Blood Flow in Multiple Sclerosis Patients and Matched Controls (full article available) From the abstract:
A significant correlation was found between Internal Jugular Vein wash-out and level of disability (R = −0.402, p<0.05).

From the article itself:
In conclusion, these results suggest that ...

Hearing a lot of negativity with Avonex?

I am a recent user of Avonex (6 Mths) and I am very pleased with the results today. I did have severe attacks of pain ( seizures ) in my right side, the second and third months of its use. My Neurologist stated it was a side effect some users get and I really got it bad. The seizures happened two or three times a week during that time.
All of a sudden there were ...
