Re: Tecfidera Recurrent Side-effects (after initial side-eff

Been on Tecfidera about 3 months. I have had several occasions now where i feel like my skin is on fire (like being sprayed with pepper spray), especially in my face. The area where it feels like it is burning turns VERY red. It usually lasts about an hour. It usually happens about 30 minutes after ...

Re: Rebif and painful soreness

I inject in my thighs only. Largely due to the bruises on my belly lasts for a month after injecting and it's just plain ugly. I cant self inject in my rear hip nor the back of my arms cause I can't reach them; and no one else wants to give me an injection. That being said, my thighs are extremely s...

Re: Emotionally Dealing with Rebif

been on Rebif for almost two years. My biggest anxiety was injecting in my thighs, as they were always problematic. That took a lot of mental energy trying to psych myself up for it. Thighs, Belly, didn't matter for me. It is not normal to stick yourself with a needle... I wasn't depressed about it...

Ampyra? Don't think I need it?

Everytime I go to my Neuro, they test my walking time. I don't feel like I have slowed at all. But he wants me to start taking this stuff. They delivered it today. With all the kidney warnings on here I am wondering if I should take it? I mean, the Rebif is supposedly bad enough on your kidneys, now...

Going on two and a half years, no relapses, no side effects. From what I have seen, your body can either handle it or not. No happy medium. Recent MRI showed no new lessions...

I am on beta interferon injections and they dont make me sleepy at all. My "Fatigue" is a whole body fatigue, not a sleepy one. I used to get to where for instance, be watching TV downstairs, and just didnt have the energy to get up and walk to the bathroom to pee. Just total body exhaustion, like e...

I used it for about a week then gradually forgot (?) to put it on till I eventually didn't use it at all. I know, I am a dumbass. Two w...

I just wish I wanted it... More so for my wife than me. She is very sex deprived because of me. She is always ready and I have no interest it seems. I have taken zinc and mag but nothing. What a strain this is on our marriage. I mean, I have a good looking, veryattractive wife.... But, I just don't ...

Good read Lew. Make's ya stop and think. And yes, I do believe in conspiracies with things such as this and cancer. MS patients and cancer patients make a lot of wealthy people wealthier. It would devestate big pharma monetarily (sp) if there was a cure.
