Re: Lumbar Puncture - New to MS

Welcome.

I recommend starting 4000 IU vitamin D3, 400 mg magnesium and 5000 mcg B12 daily. Try to minimize sugar intake.

I was diagnosed without a lumbar puncture. It is not a must for all cases. Maybe discuss it with your doctor?

MS is manageable if you take care of yourself.

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

I believe it is not MS. With such symptoms your MS diagnosis would be easy. You experienced something multi system and it was a complex thing. My diagnosis was just in seconds with symptoms like yours. Not even a spinal tap required. If an MS specialized neuro is in doubt, please let him continue. H...

Re: Brain and Spine MRI with lesions radio & neuro disagree

Trust your MS specialized neuro. Radio guys are NOT qualified to give you an MS diagnosis. Contrast is nothing to worry about. You will not feel anything, only a 2 seconds injection. I believe your issues are related with mineral/vitamin levels. Also worth checking blood sugar and thyroid levels. Ta...

Re: Does my husband REALLY have MS?

His main issue is with his foot. Both feet, really, but one causes him more problems than the other. His foot is constantly cramping up on him. It seems to be worse in the evenings, but it can happen during all times of the day. It looks like a terrible charlie horse. I get them too but not to the ...

Re: FDA warning on stopping Gilenya

Out of how many patients? 35 cases in 100000? We need more data. We know lots of drugs are relatively safe to use. What about discontinue? I only know a little about immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome. Please more research.

Re: FDA warning on stopping Gilenya

In the eight years since Gilenya’s 2010 approval, FDA received 35 cases of severe increase in disability accompanied by the presence of multiple new gadolinium-enhancing lesions on MRI following the discontinuation of Gilenya. All 35 patients received corticosteroids as the initial treatment. Of th...

Re: Do Noise and Crowds Affect You?

After I have started antidepressant Citalopram, my noise tolerance is much much better. During my first attack, noise in my house made me very unconformable.

Re: Running with MS

... By my physiotherapist kept pushing me to do aerobic exercise - he said it helps create new neural pathways. ... So if I could give myself younger self any advice it would be to be more fitness-minded - it really helps. This is very true for me. I still try to go to GYM 3 days a week. I have a p...

Re: Hello

I had a HUGE food poisoning, rested 3 days and no relapse. Stable fever of 38 degrees Celcius. My new regimen includes Propolis. Maybe another undiscovered natural remedy? I use %30 pure liquid form. Daily recommended intake is 10+ drops. I take 5 drops. https://www.mdpi.com/1420-3049/19/12/19610/pd...
