Re: Health care assistance needed to cover MS injection

It seems for every study there is an equal and opposite study. A variation of a physics law!

I read today that Copaxone will be off-patent soon. That opens the door for generic versions. Could be less expensive for jaykateri.

Re: body talk - anyone?

Dachshunds, because of their build with the long back with no support, are prone to what we used to generically call "down in back". My parents raised Dachshunds for many years, and luckily only had this happen once. It is a physical injury, not the result of, what was it? high liver levels or somet...

Re: Will be starting BG12 in a few days

I've been on it for a little over a month. Only side effects I've had was face and neck flushing/redness, but only maybe 3 or 4 times. No tummy troubles at all. I do not premedicate. I personally would not premedicate at all until I knew I had to.

Good luck to you with BG12!

Re: Chiropractic works for me!

Sorry that happened to you, stazmatic.

As I said in my opening post, "It is not for everyone - I've heard bad stories. But it works for me!". Wish there was something that worked well for us all.

Re: Anyone with MS received vaccines after DX

Only vaccine I've had since diagnosis in '00 has been the whooping cough, diphtheria, and tetanus combo known as DTaP, this year. We had a whooping cough outbreak here in EC Iowa. No problems! Please take everyone's experience as exactly that - other people's experience. I personally don't react to ...

Re: Why so much scientific research ends up making news

Thank you for explaining the process. Very interesting! Unfortunately there is little news about MS, and what little there is isn't a headline. IMO, our disease is too vague and non-specific to be headline news. Unlike AIDS, where any thing is big news: http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/story/2012...

Re: Talkin about wheelchairs

That's right, and also pawn shops. I've seen wheelchairs and scooters in pawn shops. You might be able to negotiate on price there.

Re: wildlife is cool

I like the wild wild life myself. This morning watched a doe with twins cross the road. We have wild turkeys in the yard occasionally. Sometimes a bald eagle will do a fly-by. I love living in the country!

Re: Chiropractic works for me!

Friday was adjustment # 11. Saturday I had a setback. I didn't walk any further than usual but could hardly walk most of the way back. Felt like I'd never started this treatment. :confused: And I was like that all weekend. This morning, the Chiro said that setbacks are normal. Not everything works p...
