Gilenya and Airplane travel

Hello all. I am due to start Gilenya at the end of next week. I have been on Copaxone for about 2 years but still seeing a new lesion every few months. Was wondering if anyone has experience traveling on airplanes while on Gilenya. I have to travel internationally every 6-8 weeks (Asia and Latin Ame...

Re: Going through customs with copaxone

Also I have carried up to 14 needles into many countries in the regions I mentioned and have never been questioned on any occasion.

Re: Going through customs with copaxone

Hello. I travel a lot outside of the US and I have never had a problem with anyone questioning my medication in Asia, Europe or Latin America. I think it is safe to say that most places will not question your needles.

Re: Copaxone and elevated liver enzymes

Update on this post. Elevated liver enzymes went away after a few months.. I cut the fish oils down to 6000 mgs a day. Switching to Tysabri now because of a new lesion found on my neck although brain was stabilized during Copax treatment.

Re: Shattered syringe with Autoject

Hi all. Folowing up on my post from 14 months ago. I did the Copaxone run and after the incident with the shattered syringe it never happened again. Probably due to user error. Would just like to clear that up as I would like to try to be a responsible poster as I leave behind the breadcrumbs that I...

Re: PML Cases Now Reach 486

Hi Harry. I saw your website with the PML numbers for Tysabri patients. Thanks for putting that together. Do you have numbers on JC Virus tested negative patients who got PML? I was told me there were 2 cases in its history but those eventually turned out to be actual positive JCV people in the end....

Shattered syringe with Autoject

Hi, day 4 of Copaxone. Injected into right hip. I pushed the trigger button and fired. Watching the window go down but then I noticed a sharper pain than usual from the 1st three days and then the yellow line stopped moving. I kept it held firmly in my skin for about 30 seconds with no movement. Fin...

My Ulhofts/Puflrich is about the same but the last two days I have had bad vertigo. I feel like I have had too much to drink. My neuro is prescribing me a 3 day steroid course...

Re: New Member looking for natural care advice

Jimmy: Thanks for the zinc / magnesium advice. I read the first page of your regimen page. It seems like I need to have a nutrition blood levels test done, correct? What is the proper test I should ask for? I purchased some zinc and magnesium supplements. Would you recommend those or should I go wit...

Re: New Member looking for natural care advice

Thanks so much for the feedback. I guess that overall it is probably somewhat of a pride issue. You want to be able to say that you can have control over things. My mind is very linear, if I do X then Y happens. If I sleep 5 hours a night or less and am stressed out then I will get MS symptoms or pr...

Nothing until 2008 when had an episode of vertigo which proved to be caused by nystagmus. Was diagnosed as probable for MS at the time but no lesions seen. Nothing again until 2012 when I...
