Re: Who here has a Job?

Unfortunately, you can develop tolerance to modafinil over time, so it might just be that your fatigue appears worse due to drug tolerance. Some of the natural treatments of fatigue include exercise, sunlight exposure, and a healthy diet. There is some evidence from Oregon Health Sciences University...

Re: Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIPD)

CIDP is a completely different disease. It can cause weakness and numbness just like MS, but so can a host of neurological diseases such as herniated discs, strokes, and tumors. What exactly are you getting at?

Re: Facial Numb feeling + Symptom History?

Some random thought: MS symptoms can sometimes be intermittent. they are not necessarily constant. Trigeminal neuralgia is a painful condition which is usually severe and described as an electric shock. Your description of symptoms is not consistent with this diagnosis Not everyone with multiple scl...

Re: Ms incidence in non related partners

To answer the opening poster's original question, spouses of people with MS are not thought to have higher risk of MS compared to the general population. Multiple studies have investigated this and have found that spouses of people with MS have roughly the population risk. In a Canadian study, only ...

Re: Apology needed from Cheerleader and Cece

Aren't most homeopathic "treatments" really placebos in the first place? That would be testing placebo against placebo. You don't know for sure until you perform a well designed study. There is no need to prematurely disregard a treatment. It may end up unexpectedly proving you wrong. A good exampl...

Re: Apology needed from Cheerleader and Cece

Let's say 1,000 people have a bladder infection with the same germ. A competent homeopath will interview the person to decide on a remedy which will eliminate the germ by strengthening the immune response. No one remedy will work for everyone, the single drug model is inapplicable. This would be re...

Re: Apology needed from Cheerleader and Cece

Actually, that holds true for the DMDs as well, except they cost a fortune, require repeated MRIs and injurious lab tests and risk death. I think the placebo effect may well account for their "success". This is why blinded studies are performed. Drugs such as tysabri had excellent results in clinic...

Re: 'Scientific quackery': UBC study (regarding CCSVI)

Dr. Zamboni’s legacy does NOT depend on the success of « liberation therapy » as originally conceived. He will be recognized as the CCSVI pioneer If CCSVI is unrelated to multiple sclerosis (as in the case in several studies) and procedures to intervene on veins are ineffective in treating multiple...

Re: Apology needed from Cheerleader and Cece

Just as an aside, we do have a 78 page thread where phlebotomy (blood letting) is being attempted as MS treatment. There is some logic supporting it. And some personal successes with it. http://www.thisisms.com/forum/chronic-cerebrospinal-venous-insufficiency-ccsvi-f40/topic9480.html There is some ...

Re: 'Scientific quackery': UBC study (regarding CCSVI)

What you say here -- that there is inflammation and immune system involvement as a result of the disrupted flow -- seems to me to clearly answer why someone would stay on DMDs if for any reason their blockages are unable to be treated. This does not actually make sense for the following reason: mos...

Re: 'Scientific quackery': UBC study (regarding CCSVI)

I am re-posting the above comment to re-iterate my opinion that the study was badly done. You make valid points about the individuality of MS and MS treatment, but the nature of a clinical trial is that is applies to a single broadly applied protocolized treatment. Even if liberation is only effect...

Re: 'Scientific quackery': UBC study (regarding CCSVI)

Centenarian100 suggests that Dr. Zamboni has a vested interest in promoting his idea with the additional hope of financial gain. I will point out that Dr. Zamboni is a European University Doctor. Practitioners in European medicine aren’t awash in money like in the United States. Values differ. Doct...
