Re: Canadian TV Documentary about CCSVI - Urgent Request!

Loreena One of the many things you can investigate is how and why all vascular research of last century regarding MS was denied, ignored and discarded. In the end, that is the material that perhaps inspired Zambonii and becomes a solid ancient basement for his work. I am already imagining documentar...

Re: SPASM AND STIFFNESS AS SPASTICITY

Sou. Thx very much. Of course we are just exchanging aiming at the sole goal of best possible recovery of function. I read carefully the wikipedia link you posted. In my understanding the conclusion you can draw from reading is exactly the opposite: spasticity may arise from damage in upper motor ne...

Re: SPASM AND STIFFNESS AS SPASTICITY

Sou´s statements are not extreme at all in a bad sense. Though I am curious about basis to conclude spasticity comes exclusively from damage in upper motor neurons. Generally speaking this does not seem to be the pathological path in MS. Do you have any material supporting your statement?

Re: Sativex trial in Argentina

As a general rule the country might approve drugs approved somewhere else. I do not have details on reciprocal agreements on that respect It might be just a commercial problem on how and when GW decides to officially market the drug and therefore requests a license. Unfortunately CRABS are available...

Sativex trial in Argentina

The drug is not approved in Argentina yet. I am in the process of organizing a clinical trial for a group of us. I already contacted GW and gathering doctors down here who will lead the trial and make medical evaluations. Can I have feedback from those of you who used it for spasticity on its effica...

Re: Heavy legs

1eye: Adding on your splendid characterization; On individual basis muscles seem to work. In my case i.e. streching reflex (spasm)in my left leg is so poweful that one would rarely say that there is a problem at all. An expert (we) would inmediately realize that it is not functional though when oppo...

Re: Heavy legs

You see. Many,many people experiences same picture: muscles contracting and relaxing arbitrarily, uncontrolled and disorganized. Good news is that muscles contract and relax which is their main function. Bad news is that they do not team-play. That is perhaps why I sometimes feel qualified musicians...

Re: Heavy legs

Rosegirl: also my only symptom that allows me to stand but prevents me from walking. Sometimes I feel that everything is in place (muscles, nerves,etc) but there is a missing factor that needs to be found to recover full mobility. Any idea or suggestion?

This takes me back to the issue of demyelination again. Is there conclusive evidence that damage of nerve tissue starts up by loss/breakdown of myelin? Would it be possible that latter ocurrs as part , and among other things, of damage of nerve tisue?

Many have already questionned the autoinmune adjective olaced on MS. I tend to think that also demyelinating adjective should be given a critical review for it might be misleading towards an efective therapy. Within a 1mm3 lesion (a small one in general )seen as white spot on MRI there might be arou...

I tend to agree with dania in the sense that spasticity cannot be entirely well explained by nerve damage or lesions. There has to be something else !

I am trying to find out drugs to deal with spasticity thus improving mobility. Do you happen to have any info on Sativex which is apparently a new cannabis based drug recently approved in Europe aimed at reducing spasticity? Any other potential therapy suggested?

Sativex - Mobility/Spasticity

I recently learned of a new drug approved in Europe named Sativex that has the potential of significantly improving spasticity. It seems to me that is also available in Canada. I know that it is perhaps topic for other forum but it occurs that I was liberated 9 months ago and spaticity is practicall...

Oxygen is increasingly arising as one of the potential beneficial therapies for pwMS in order to induce neuro-regeneration. However, I learned from my doctors, oxygen has 2 faces. The potentially dark one is that it makes cells work harder and, as a result, production of free radicals increases and ...
