writing to memebers

I am near a few doctors on the list. Do you think it wise to contact them and see if they would be interested in a consultation? I would think they would want a few agreeable participants for their research study.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Request a summarized explanation of stent procedure please

Hello. I see there have been a lot of posts recently about using Stents to open up apparent blockage that may cause the damaging disease known as Multiple Sclerosis. It has been confusing reading these posts. And, I am having a hard time trying to discern personal opinions and actual objective thoug...

I may personally disagree with invitro fertilizaton, abortion, embryonic stemcells and euthanasia ...that's my right. But it's not my right to deny the...

thanks wilson, i'm still undecided. so with embryonic stem cells you are killing a possible baby if you use them? Robbie, are you asking when life begins? I can safely state that not one human being on this planet holds the facts to this answer. However, I know that some of us BELIEVE that life beg...

Why some aren't rejoicing

I can tell you why some are NOT excited by the news. And, here is why. Scenario1: Stem cell research other than embryonic is funded and a cure is found. Result: Everyone can partake in the cure. Scenario2: Embryonic stem cell research is funded and a cure is found. Result: only a certain majority ca...

Daisy, thank you very much for all the info about Lyme. I am assuming I can go to any testing area (like Quest) if ordered by a MD. Do you know where I can find a website or detailed information so I can print off exactly the test I want so my general physician knows what to order?

Thanks

I want to thank everyone for the replies. They say "Opinions are like noses-- everyone has one." My opinion is that MS may be caused by infection or some environmental effect. The statistical numbers cannot be ignored. Colorado is a very transient state. 1/5 people that curently live here did not gr...

I live in a high rate area...

In Colorado, 1 out of every 750 people is diagnosed having MS. That is far above the norm of 1 out of every 2000 diagnosed on the American continent. Has there been any studies done that show you may increase your chances of disability due to MS if you continue to stay in the high rate area? Or to p...

I really don't know what type of MS I have, RR or Progressive. I haven't been to a Neuro for over 2 years. Besides what was stated above about the latest MRI, it is noted that everything like ventricle, nasoparynx, and mastoid is normal (whatever that is??). Impression is "stable white matter lesion...

No new lesions relative to prior examination

Hi. I had an MRI recently and the out come is... "The brain demonstrates area of FLAIR hyperintensity in the deep and subcortical white matter. There are no new lesions relative to previous examination." It has been 2 years and 9 months between MRIs. Obviously, this is good news. The question is... ...

At first, I took one of the CRAB drugs. After three months of making myself sick, I decided to quit the jabs to the legs. I read a couple of articles about Minocycline and MS and decided to go that route. After a year of Mino only, I went on the whole abx regimen. With the recent studies of MS and t...

Congratulations on finding a doc that will prescribe the Minocycline. I took Mino for a year and had the same reactions you did without the nausea. I tried to take 2 100 mgs daily but had trouble breathing, especially at night. So, I just took 100 mg once daily for 9 months and worked up to the 2 X ...
