Re: Trigeminal neuralgia = MS?

Thank you. I'm from Europe, currently an international student in Africa. I will probably get an MRI that's covered when I go back home. Hi Dololo, Your story sounds like mine. I was working in Asia when I had TN which led (hope it won't be the case for you) to an MS diagnosis. One night, TN was so...

Re: Antiretroviral Drugs

Hi, It reminds me the story of this woman who has ms and noticed huge improvements of her ms symptoms after taking HIV drugs. *https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-sussex-34659771* For sure, only one person claiming he/she knows how to cure MS doesn't mean anything. But, MS-associated-with-retrovirus...

Re: Are you man or ms?

Hey gristy,

Have you ever heard about the psychological phenomenon called the Backfire effect?

It says: the more you try to convince people about something, the more convinced they become that you are wrong.

Maybe you should medidate about that :wink:

Re: hair (and eye) changes

When I was taking 300 mg Biotin per day , I used to go to the hairdresser two times per month!

story behind "The show must go on"

Hi, Today, I discovered the story behind that song. Did you know this song was recorded a few weeks before Freddie Mercury’s death? He knew he was dying from aids, and he had lungs issue. Guitarist Brian May saw he was struggling as he was very weak, so he told him to have a break. Mercury drank a g...

Re: RE: CLEMASTINE FUMARATE RESTORES MYELIN IN M.S

This is old news... + the correct title should be "Clemastine Fumarate restores Myelin in RR MS" Many PPMS (including me) have tried this med for several months, at the same dosage than the study (2 * 5.36 mg/day). We haven't noticed any positive result. I'm not saying it means CF definitely doesn't...

Re: Pain in Multiple Sclerosis

My wife's pain dropped considerably when she started taking CBD oil and magnesium. I just realized that I was not feeling the pain behind my eye anymore. I've been taking CBD oil for 10 months. But I can't say for sure CBD is the reason for that. However, this oil didn't stop my MS progression... I...
