Re: Optic Neuritis & Corrective Lenses

So, I've had nearsightedness since I was little. It's pretty significant, but since my first attack that started last month, I developed optic neuritis. The steroids didn't completely eradicate it, though I can see much better in that eye now. My question is this: can you still get corrective lense...

Re: Diagnosed with CIS today, more tests to come - things to know/ask?

In terms of actually exercising, when would you say it's safe to try doing something like bike riding again? Is it too dangerous to attempt with any tremor at all, or might it actually help overall by stimulating a lot of the leg muscles? Do you have access to a stationary exercise bike? If so, it ...

Have you ever tried splitting you daily dose into two, talking half in the morning and the other half in the evening?
Taking D3 at night can interfere with your sleep since it's been found to reduce melatonin production.

Re: Diagnosed with CIS today, more tests to come - things to know/ask?

The Tecfidera is also has a similar problem. It was derived from observations that a topical psoriasis cream made of dimethyl fumarate seemed to lessen MS symptoms . That led to an oral drug called BG12, then a drug called Fumaderm, then onto Tecfidera. They just don't know how it works. The thinki...

Re: Diagnosed with CIS today, more tests to come - things to know/ask?

I've tried melatonin in the past, and it tends to cause stomach upset for me, but I'll try it again with no other options. I'd rather not go back on sleeping pills, as I never felt that they gave me very restful sleep, and I was one of the people with the rare adverse effect of hallucinations while...

Re: Dayton Interventional Radiology

I think one thing that Dr. Sclafani's discussion has demonstrated is that use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is critical for successful treatment. It helps to determine an accurate size of the vein thereby avoiding over stretching and damaging the vein and also helps avoid under treatment minimi...

Re: Diagnosed with CIS today, more tests to come - things to know/ask?

Update: Had my brain MRI this afternoon, and the neurologist called tonight to let me know that there were a lot of lesions on it. Some were brand new and lit up, but he didn't know how old the non-lit ones were, just that they're newer than 4 years, since my brain MRI in 2015 was clean. He can't d...

Is CBD oil any good?
CDB oil is fine. The quality of the product will vary with the manufacturer. The CDB industry is still in its infancy. One reputable source though is CW Hemp. https://www.charlottesweb.com/ There are likely others as well.

Re: Hello! New member with a question

Interestingly enough, last night my wife gave me a massage with lavender oil. Be careful with lavender oil. It's been reported to activate estrogen receptors. I think it's best to just avoid it.

Re: Diagnosed with CIS today, more tests to come - things to know/ask?

Well, the symptoms weren't gone with the oral steroids, so I started 1g IV prednisone today. Is it normal for symptoms to become seriously exacerbated after a high dose of that, for at least the first day? In my experience, MS patients in the midst of an exacerbation typically report feeling better...
