Re: Epstein Bar Virus - A Review of the Epstein Barr Virus in Relationship to MS

Wow. Thanks. So I should take Acyclovir, too. The Acyclovir tablets I used to take were big. Doc said I could take the tiny Famvir pills instead. Which is better against EBV, Acyclovir or Valtrex? Maybe it’s HHV 6 that Famvir might have effect on. (ValCYTE was good at first for me, but then less so,...

Re: Thoracic cavity venous flow

This article is so important! Thank you. Who is the author, Tucker? He’s in Canada? Super important for the many Canadians with MS. Maybe call it Fluid Dynamics of ... Venous Flow in MS. The thoracic cavity words might obscure the relevance it has for those of us familiar with CCSVI. And it specific...

Re: Is Dr. Sclafani still around?

So wonderful that you have communicated on this forum again, Dr. Sclafani. Thank you. One thing I’ve wondered about: Fifty years ago I observed an angiogram up to the heart. Ten years ago I did not pass a heart stress test, and the cardiologist wanted me to have an angiogram. I asked our family doct...

Re: does anyone know the correct Billable codes for a venapl

Thank you for these diagnoses and codes.

Several of us are wondering similarly.

I think coding has changed (it's 7 years later, now), but this is something to start with.

Re: Low dose benadryl: An unknown treatment for MS

"5 mg of benadryl every 4 to 6 hours"... A caplet is 25mg, per the Benedryl site. I get mine as a generic equivalent. I think it would be possible to use a pill cutter to cut it into roughly 4 parts, which would be close enough for me. I've been taking one caplet at bedtime for the past months, help...

Re: Lyme test

Lyme testing results are merely indicators, not definitive. IGENEX lab is usually considered the best. There are lots of different types of Borrelia besides the Borrelia burgdorferi, which is "Lyme", and testing may well not test for other strains. I probably got Borrelia persica in the Middle East....
