Designing an exercise programme for a participant with MS

Though multiple sclerosis can be a challenging health condition both physically and psychologically, research has shown that a person's level of physical fitness, psychological disposition and general quality of life can improve with regular physical activity, strength training, and flexibility exercises. As Johnson says, despite ongoing hopes for a cure for multiple sclerosis, "exercise is universally available and can be readily designed for virtually any level of neurological disability"

That's from http://www.ncpad.org/disability/fact_sheet.php?sheet=187&section=1382. The site is ...

IN A NUTSHELL

As some of you may know, or possibly recognize my "name", I've been a member here for 6 or 8 months I believe. As of recent I have spent limited time here not because I have ANY dislikes about this board. I just felt I was getting MS saturated....not a good thing. Why make this more of my life than it already is.

I have also visited several other MS forums. Seems I always end-up ...

Anti-viral treatment

Given the hypotheses that MS may have a viral cause especially the Epstein Barr virus, I am going to discuss with my doctor taking valacyclovir which is an anti-viral treatment. In a 2002 study in Denmark patients on valacyclovir showed 20% fewer lesions on average than controls. Is anybody else trying this or contemplating this?

Eat What?

Looking for a "regimen" to call my own...

I'm new here... just posted an intro, started poking around, found this thread and realized everyone posting is lightyears ahead of me.

A little background: I was diagnosed in 12/04. Decided to go to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a corroborative opinion because it was close by and seemed like an institution on the cusp of research. I was mostly asymptomatic, so willing to do all the diagnostic stuff for the benefit of ...

Weblinks on Chlamydia pneumoniae

Here's a list I compiled of many relevant links on Chlamydia pneumoniae:


** Information on Chlamydia pneumoniae in general **
http://herkules.oulu.fi/isbn9514269853/html/x467.html

** Information on Chlamydia pneumoniae and its relationship to human diseases in general **

This article includes neurological diseases and includes the statement, currently ignored by most neurologists, that “chlamydial infections should be included in the differential diagnosis of neurological syndromes.”

Lower Back Pain

I started using Curcumin (extract of tumeric) and after a couple of months have gotten rid of all the pain. No more chiropratic visits and no more pain. My nervous system inflammation has left as well. My nerves are behaving near normally. Highly recommend it. (2000mg daily, half morning, half evening) It is pretty inexpensive too. Haven't noticed any adverse side effects, except no pain.

Provigil

Has anyone tried Provigil (modafinil) for fatigue? At my neuro appt. yesterday, my doctor recommended I try Provigil for fatigue. Unlike Symmetrel which is taken daily by most people, it is taken as needed. I was planning on taking it on work day mornings.
It is a medicine to treat unusually sleepy people who have a sleep disorder, narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea or shift work sleep disorder. It has been used with much success for ...
