Re: Aberrant oligodendroglial-vascular interactions

Could this be related to why treatment for CCSVI sometimes works for a while?

Re: cladribine / leustatin / mavenclad

Hey I just got an email ad for Mavenclad (cladribine) and its apparently approved, but my doctor friend says never take a new treatment in the first 25 years. Give them time to debug. That said, my back and leg pain appears to be receding on its own. I like when that happens. But it's a new symptom ...

My spine

I have been for an MRI of my spine. I suspect it is just a case of path-of-least-resistance, but the following was said in an exchange with my family doctor: From: Doctor May 10 On your MRI there are multiple mild disc protrusions in your thoracic spine that indent the anterior (front part) of the s...

Acronymosis

Acronymosis © Chris Sullivan 2019 Many organizations, both governmental and NGO, suffer from a problem, commonly found in government bureaucracies. In fact, there seem to be serious cases of it at provincial, federal and municipal levels. These may have been acquired by proximal activities. People f...

Re: MS review: The division of MS in "types" was made up just to approve interferons

The subdivision of MS sufferers into 'types' has allowed neurologists to prevent insurability of MS patients, denying them use of existing insurance agreements to pay for conventional medical therapy. My wife and I both begged them. They all said no. This should be the subject of a MASSIVE class act...

Re: hair (and eye) (and nail) changes

OK I have had unusually fast hair growth, including places I have never had it. Since starting biotin. Nail growth too. My friend who is my age who broke her neck at 23 and had car accidents since, says she has had terrible hair and nails for years. So I sent her a bottle of biotin. We'll see in a f...

Re: lead poisoning

The attention of some of the best minds on ThisIsMS reassures me. I think these arguments are too easy, though. I doubt you can conclude much about MS from the date of the first documents or case instances, since we are talking about tiny sample sizes. (About volcanic activity: it can protect agains...

Re: lead poisoning

I have to wonder why there has been no comment on this. I thought we had some very smart people here. Isn't anybody even curious about the predicted sharp decrease in the incidence of MS, due to end of leaded gasoline? Or do we not want to know?

Re: It’s probably just fear but....

I have a wheelchair but I only use it when I can't go the distance with my walker. My legs have hurt lately but I have been classified secondary progressive for many years. Once you have used a cane you can be classified SP. It does not mean anything about what your future holds. As far as I have be...

Re: 2018: Comorbidity in US patients with multiple sclerosis

Thanks for keeping on top of this. This morning I had scarily painful legs so today I stayed away from the NuStep. The other thing I've been doing is trying to walk every day. But today being a snow day I didn't. If I don't have the same scare in the morning that'll be it. I'll have to take every ot...

Re: 2018: Comorbidity in US patients with multiple sclerosis

Well I would have thought I would never need a B supplement, because I take 300 mg /day of rice bran, which I thought was all the b vitamin part of rice that is removed, and you don't get, unless you eat brown rice. I'm only using it as filler but I would have thought I got lots of B2! Guess not.
