Re: Newly diagnosed at 61 at long last

I'm taking the Ashton recommended 25 mg of zinc daily. Can a zinc deficiency be related to tinnitus? My old useless GP had absolutely no suggestions when I reported my tinnitus her over two years ago but then she wasn't very helpful with anything. I've been on these supplements for about a month & a...

Re: Newly diagnosed at 61 at long last

Thank you all for your welcoming responses, suggestions & the links. I am ever so thankful that the neuro I saw at the MS clinic is not big on the DMDs and didn't even make the slightest attempt to suggest any drugs, which he acknowledged wouldn't be helpful for me anyway.

Re: Newly diagnosed at 61 at long last

So finally got in to the local MS clinic and saw one of their neuros for my "official/definitive" diagnosis and was told I have SPMS. Exactly what I thought all along.

:smile: Other than back pain, trouble with walking/balance has been my major MS issue for the last four years and when ever I mentioned it to my GP she acted like it wasn't her problem. But then again I wasn't diagnosed with SPMS until a month ago so I think she just thought I was a chronic complain...

cytokine GM-CSF

Has anyone read or heard of anymore news about cytokine GM-CSF research as it applies to MS? The last news that I have found was in April 2011 and all the most recent news that I can come up with relates to other diseases. The neutralization of the cytokine GM-CSF could halt the development of multi...

Newly diagnosed at 61 at long last

I'd been telliing countless symptom...
