Moderna vaccine

My wife and I got the 2nd dose of the Moderna vaccine for Covic19 yesterday. I'm having soreness in the shoulder at the injection site. That was minor. But today I'm feeling very weak. This is much worse than the 1st shot. It was a struggle getting out of bed. Just for the record I have the PPMS var...

Re: PPMS & SPMS are qualitatively indistinguishable

I'm not sure what they mean by "qualitatively indistinguishable". The simple way to tell is this: If you had relapses and remissions in the past but no longer have them and you have a continuous progression of disability then you probably have secondary progressive. If you never had relapses or remi...

Re: Caring for the disabled or elderly

NHE You're right about that. I do seem to be progressing more rapidly especially now that the weather is cold and I don't get outside much. And I am spending more time sitting on my posterior instead of exercising. So I'm starting to ride the exercise bike now. Also I'll see if my doctor will prescr...

Caring for the disabled or elderly

Ever since I was Dxed with MS I've thought about what my final years would be like. Now I'm 71 and I need a walker to get around. My wife is 69 and has arthritis. It would not be fair to put the burden of caring for me on her. I also have no desire to spend my final years in a nursing home nor would...

That was a great post. Thank you that.

BTW This is just my opinion but I think the people who obstructed the use of hydroxychloroquine may have cost the lives of thousands of people. This is akin to murder. They should be held accountable.

Re: Brain chip

I am someone who is normally leery of such things for fear someone with evil intentions might be able to take control of my body. But I would do this in a heartbeat.

Re: COVID-19: Outpatient 5 day treatment

He said he has been treating patients since last Thurday so that means maybe a week at most. That's not enough time to draw any conclusions. That's not convincing. However there are other studies that show positive results for hydroxychloroquine. The problem now is you can't get it. I asked my docto...

Re: Baclofen- friend or foe?

I've been taking Neuro-Mag Magnesium L-Threonate 144mg at bedtime since 7/25/20. It seems to be working. I'm having much less trouble w/ spasms than before. And I reduced the dose from the recommended 144 mg to 96 mg. Also reduced the dose of baclofen from 40mg to 30.

Baclofen- friend or foe?

I've been taking Baclofen for many years to reduce the muscle spasms I get in my legs at night. The spasms can keep me awake all night sometimes. I started with 10 mg daily at bedtime but slowly increased to 40 mg. I increased the dose from 20 to 40mg about 1 week ago. It definitely helps reduce the...
