Re: Is MS an autoimmune disease?

MS is as autoimmune as flat the Earth is. It once appeared to be, but there are serious doubts now. Despite the fact that no disease is autoimmune, unless proven otherwise, I find it frustrating that it is the "non-autoimmune camp" that has to prove that they are right! Autoimmunity in MS is an unpr...

Re: Is Autoimmunity the cause of MS..???

The autoimmunity theory has yet to be proven. This could happen in the distant future, but it is quite unlikely, though.

Re: 159 cases of PML with 29 deaths for Tysabri MS patients

What would you choose?

Watch you deteriorate or watch you deteriorate and take a drug that might kill you or ruin what's left of your life with its side effects?

The answer is simple, isn't it?

Re: NEW paper-Venous Embryology is the KEY to CCSVI in MS

OT: What I find most amazing of all is how can neurologists specialize in brain, an organ they don't even have. Idiots.

I am wondering what are the comments of the other side going to be.

Re: How do we turn off the immune system activated?

But a double-whammy of stopping the damage (if CCSVI venoplasty can stop the damage) and then remyelinating is a beautiful idea. No, it isn't. Comi G. Is it clinically relevant to repair focal multiple sclerosis lesions? J. Neurol. Sci 2008 Feb;265(1-2):17-20. There is much more damage to the CNS t...

This is not a fact. This is a speculation, based on (so far) unproven hypotheses. If anybody have any proof, here is the Nobel prize.

Re: internet racing ahead of the scientific evidence

Internet is a medium of collecting information. IMHO, it's the largest medium of its kind. Isn't it expected for somebody that keeps going downhill following his/her neurologist's advice to seek more information? Where would somebody look if not the Internet? @1eye: No, interferon has never been pro...

Re: internet racing ahead of the scientific evidence

It works the other way, too: "scientific evidence racing behind the internet " We definitely need better scientists. They don't understand that by offering "solutions" like interferon, they have lost their credibility. How can they convince somebody that the blocked veins, that can be seen, do not e...

Re: SPASM AND STIFFNESS AS SPASTICITY

Blaming JL for our problems and magnesium's inability to help is unfair! She has had the goodwill to help.

Apart from magnesium, is there anything else we could do? How about the indian tonic water? Do you have more information about it?

Re: SPASM AND STIFFNESS AS SPASTICITY

I can't agree more. I believe that all "MS help" stuff works for patients that don't need it, in the first place.

Re: SPASM AND STIFFNESS AS SPASTICITY

I take 400mg chelated magnesium when I wake up, along with 1000 IU vit. D3, and 400 mg more at bedtime. It doesn't really help, AFAICT.
