Chronic Axonal Injury

Is anyone familiar with this term? I recently had my 2nd MRI (almost 3 years since the first) and I'd like to know what chronic axonal injury could indicate. To put it in context, here's the sentence: "The right periventricular lesion is associated with T1 hypointensity, which in multiple sclerosis ...

I read this one recently and thought it was funny. :) I was in the public restroom - I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice in the other stall: "Hi, how are you?"........Me: embarrassed, "Doin' fine!" Stall: "So what are you up to?".......Me: "Uhhh, I'm like you, just sitting here."Stall: "C...

Tramadol

I'm wondering if anyone else has had experience with this medication. I began having pain in my left side a couple of weeks ago. a CT scan revealed a 9mm kidney stone. My gp offered Percocet but since I don't do well with codeine based drugs, I asked for something else. She prescribed Tramadol and w...

Re: So lucky and yet unlucky. . . .

P.S. I'm getting the cd with my MRI images mailed to me here. . .I'm thinking of making an animated video highlighting the lesions with large demonic font stating "My name is Lesion, for we are many" I would love to see that! I have no talent for drawing whatsoever but I have all these images in my...

I guess my problem came from the beginning when Zamboni announced his initial results. I would NEVER expect anyone performing trials with MS to come up with 100% of anything unless they ask people if this disease sucks. My initial skepticism was a little less scientific than Scorpion's, it was the ...

JL, Thanks for the kind words. That was a rough week but things have gotten better since. Matt, I hadn't considered SP or PP, I thought I was way too mobile for that but I'll definitely discuss it with my neuro on my next visit. I guess I relate SP & PP with a higher edss, which is my own goofy perc...

He appeared unusually feeble after a long walk on an August day...I don't suppose the disease has changed much in the last 100 years.

Creeping Paralysis

First of all, my heart goes out to the storm victims. My problems are small compared to the death and devastation they've had to endure this past week. It's been an awful week for me, the rain seemed endless, my basement has been leaking, actually, leaking is an understatement, cleaning up the water...
