Re: Swollen ankles and feet

It is too soon for me to make any definitive conclusions about the LegXerciser at this point with regard to its long term benefits for me. Time will tell. Should I be able to confirm improvement in the future, I will post an update. At this point, the one conclusion I am sure of is that my legs get...

Re: Swollen ankles and feet

Hi ElliotB, I just received the "LegXercise" machine I ordered and am trying it out now for the first time. I am impressed with it. If you have any type of issue with your legs such as stiffness and/or cramping, swelling or have lost the ability to use them, it may be a good idea to invest in one an...

Re: Shoulder to shoulder with the 'Desatascador'.

As I have already suggested, degaussing to remove magnetite from the shoulders is essential because this deposit is easily transferred to the brain by large electromagnetic fields at 50 or 60 Hz we use in our daily lives. Here, and I stand by this, it is probably due to holding the plastic body of ...

Re: Zinger Chair?

It looks like the Zinger Chair is available in the UK as the Joy Rider Chair with more conventional motors and drive mechanism. https://www.e-goes.co.uk/shop/joyrider-powered-chair/ The following site says that the Zinger was the Joy Rider's predecessor so the US is getting marketed a second rate, o...

Re: Zinger Chair?

do you get a lot of rain in your area? Yes, and also a few days of snow each Winter. The driveway is also sloped and full of pine needles. did you find something else that you prefer? I'm still shopping, but something like these look intriguing. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073V11B1Q/ or https://www....

Re: Zinger Chair?

After reading multiple reviews I've discovered that the Zinger Chair's drive mechanism consists of a knurled shaft that is pushed against the tire treads in order to propel the chair. If the tires get wet or get debris on them, like pine needles, then the drive mechanism loses its ability to propel ...

Irony for breakfast

You gotta love the irony in the disconnect of our modern food supply. I was eating fresh strawberries, watermelon and an orange for breakfast today looking out my window at an inch of freshly fallen snow covering the ground and streets. :roll:

Can MS look like withdrawal from opiates, or any other drug?
From the info posted, it looks like kratom is the opiate. Your boyfriend likely needs to go to a residential drug addiction treatment center.

Re: Optic neuritis?

I had optic neuritis when I was initially diagnosed. My vision in one eye had clouded over. It was as if my glasses were permanently fogged over, but just on one lens. The doctor could readily see the inflammation in my retina. IV steroids, solumedrol, helped clear up my vision, but it remained sens...

Re: Focus on the gut-brain axis

I've decided to try the sunflower lecithin. I take 2 tablespoons per day. I mix it with some plain yogurt. The lecithin gives it a smooth texture. This provides roughly 5 g phosphatidylcholine, 3.6 g phosphatidylinositol and 2.2 g phosphatidylethanolamine per day. I've only been taking it for a cou...
