muscle relaxant

During my initial MS phase when still I was not diagnosed, I ended up with an orthopaedician due to joint pain. The Dr gave me muscle relaxant for few days. This was really helpful and even some of my colleagues noticed the change. I was wondering if someone has any experience.

dairy

I have read articles that suggest avoiding dairy products for MSers. I am heavily addicted to Tea & consume around 7-8 cups. And unlike in western countries, Indian tea tends to contain good amount of milk. So I would like to know from people what has been their personal experience on dairy products...

If these guys were smart they would get in the game, and begin to at least explore the possibilities and collaborate with vascular docs and IRs to learn. To that extent the Beirut study is important in that it leaves behind 'ccsvi exists?' behind. I think long term question is which comes first? Bu...

The Beirut study concludes that CCSVI is a cause of MS. So, where does that put German and Swedish studies which found that CCSVI has nothing to do with MS? Anyway, the question really is not what comes first but whether fixing CCSVI provides relief or not. The Beirut study concluded that CCSVI was...

kiwee, This is good. Since you say you have not noticed any changes, I am wondering if changes you describe would mean that fatigue is gone. Who knows fatigue might be directly associated with reduced blood flow which has been taken care now. Hopefully, fMRI will become standard test in future and w...

Re: MSS study grants

Call me naive, but would it not make sense to involve a Vascular Specialist in this as the whole idea being a Vascular condition... maybe it is just me... I think all they really need is people from diagnostic side - like imaging and scanning experts. They have them. They can include a vascular spe...
