Well I don't see the Uro until November 5th. The initial testing was done by my Nurse Practitioner. Now I'm a Nurse too and from what I have always seen, cath's hurt. Especially in men. Don't you find this a painful procedure to endure everyday? I just don't want one and I wish there was another way...

WOW thank you for the time you spent writing me on both issues. I guess we are truly in the same boat with these two issues. I don't like the side effects of baclofen so I don't use that or any of the other meds they have. I don't do well with them at all for some reason. I take some tylenol arthrit...

Bladder Issue. This is new

I have always been one that had to "pee" all the time but now I have to go so much that its downright annoying. I can't sleep an hour without having to go. This has been going on for months now.

Thank you :)

Copaxone Thoughts...vs Interferons for inflammation

I was told Copaxone is not good for inflammation in the brain. The drugs good for that are Rebif or Betaseron. Is there any truth to this and does anyone know anything about this.
I was told Copaxone doesn't help with any sort of inflammation/swelling as the interferons do.
Thanks for the input.

No No...
I just said they warned me thats all. Not trying to lose any weight at all. They warned me it could happen..
This is strictly for fatigue.
I didn't like Provigil because it would speed me up for a few hours and I'd crash hard..
