ampyra

I would like to here from anyone else who has tried this drug and their experiences. I am trying to get my neuroligist to prescribe this. She said I could try it when a pharmacy around here gets it in.

stem cell therapy

I'm glad I logged on here to read some of your letters on SCT. I had enquired to a few stem cell therapy companys and was "in the dark" whether to pusue the treatment or not. I had the feeling this was at this time a "scam to get money". I guess I'll hold on to see if anyone really comes up with a g...

depression

I really have had some bouts with depression (brought on by having to live with MS). I have been on Prozac and Fluoxetine. Both seamed to do the job. I'm currently not taking either one and my mood seams to be allright. I've finally came to the realization that I'm dealing with a harsh case of MS an...

how I get along

I have had MS for over 17 years, and it's not pretty! I can't walk by myself, my body doesn't co-ordinate to do things like it used to. Over the years, I've had about every symptom you can think of except blindness(knock on wood). So I know how challenging it can be. But what it all boils down to is...

going to start LDN

I just came back from my family physician yesterday and he prescribed LDN for me. I'm starting with a 2.5 mg dose. I'll let you know how I do on it. It will take a while to get it due to mail order.

tysabri

I've had MS for over 17 years(since I was diagnosed) and my neuro thinks the tysabri may help me because it helps with the swelling of plaques that I alreay have. I'm basically unable to walk without a walker, and barely then.

novantrone

By the way I did have a heart attack, but I blame it on my bad eating habits not the novantone.(it was a mild one, but hurt like hell anyway)
