Re: BREAKTHROUGH HOPE FOR MS TREATMENT AS SCIENTISTS DISCOVE

Hi Cheereo! I am BUSY with kids and life in general but am always logging into Pubmed to see updates these days as somehow this site is quite unwieldy. I also spend time on the Bart's Hospital webblog run by Dr Giovannoni, a great neurologist in London. He's running the raltegravir trial which I am ...

Re: Hepatitis B vaccine

I just wanted to repost the link below as I see my previous post put the incorrect link in, doh. It's interesting to note the genetic link to an area involved in suppressing amongst others the Hep B virus and how this area is linked to MS. I wouldn't be so fast to rule out Hep B vaccines as a candid...

Re: New input on Bladder issues please, and wonderful Danish

If you don't have bladder symptoms with MS then you are extremely lucky. I have been extremely lucky to have sailed a third of the way around the world with up to two others on a 60foot cutter rigged sloop. It ain't for sissies. I would only recommend the Atlantic crossing. Will they face the cape o...

Re: pregnancy, spasms, safe treatment

I too suffered from spasms which for me are definitely made worse if my bladder is full. The only way I could stop the spasms at night was to ensure my bladder was voided and that often meant peeing into a large container standing upright as the pregnancy progressed as it was the only way to void pr...

Re: angioplasty alters bp favourably

Well my blood pressure is now much higher than it was before the angioplasty but perhaps that is because I am much less fit and more disabled!

Re: Thymoquinone from black seed oil fights ebv (in vitro)

I think that nigella sativa caused a minor relapse in my left foot and that this has gradually resolved whilst on melatonin, crocin, beta interferon 1a, vitamin a, vitamin d, niacin, tryptophan, curcumin, inosine and minocycline. I would be EXTREMELY cautious about nigella sativa.
