"amelia"]I might can help you some. Gary has had leg spasms bad. His leg, both at different times, will lift up in the air when he is sitting, jump around and then slowly go back down. In bed, I know not to even get near them legs. Anyway, he has had moderate success with a small amount of red wine, about 4 oz before bedtime. It does work and usually the cheaper wine, like Mogan David works best. He says tastes better too. Is Marg your wife with MS? What treatment has she been on, how long?
I certainly share your concern about just how much Tysabri will benefit MS patients.
MS TREATMENT MAY HALT DISEASE !says Dr. Victor Rivera, medical director of the Maxine Mesinger Multiple Sclerosis Clinic at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and The Methodist Hospital.The drug Tysabri may help prevent new brain damage from developing in patients with multiple sclerosis, neurologists say. In the clinical trials, the development of new lesions in the brain ... was controlled in almost 90 percent of all cases,
None of the patients has had any relapse or attack since we started the trial. Tysabri, approved in November for certain multiple sclerosis patients, appears effective, fast-acting and safe for the relapsing forms of the degenerative disease, Rivera says. Tysabri is made by the trial's sponsor, pharmaceutical company Biogen Idec. The drug is being tested in an international study.
