pry it from my disconcertingly-not-cold, dead, well-caffeinated hands ;)

I had a HUGE food poisoning, rested 3 days and no relapse. Stable fever of 38 degrees Celcius.
My new regimen includes Propolis. Maybe another undiscovered natural remedy? I use %30 pure liquid form. Daily recommended intake is 10+ drops. I take 5 drops.
Your MS song of the month: Avenged Sevenfold - Unbound (The wild ride)
This ride that takes me through life
Leads me into darkness but emerges into light
No one can ever slow me down
I'll stay unbound
Gonna drink coffee now, ciao ;)

Winter is here
My ex-wife uses my kids as biological weapons (Come on NATO, do your job please) Last week I spent some great time with them. Later I had some weird fever, 38.6 degrees Celcius. Funny thing was my GF had fever too. This week we have realized that we experienced hand, foot and mouth disease because of kids. Kinda scary but no damage
Waiting for year #2 checks. Almost same regimen. Cheers, take care.

Hello my name is Jasmine I was diagnosed with Ms in 2015 I suffer from left leg weakness and left foot drop. I'm currently doing the physical therapy and anytime that I do the physical therapy my therapist always has me use either a walkaide device or bioness device unfortunately my insurance company refuses to pay for either for me I've been going online trying to see if I can find one of these devices for a decent price that's not so expensive but either I miss out on the auctions or the devices are just extremely expensive so I was trying to see if anyone up here may happen to know of somewhere for me to either search for on the internet or so where I can go to get a walkaide device that's not too expensive, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
, so if anyone has any ideas or suggestions for me feel free to hi there respond to this or you can email me thank you

"my insurance company refuses to pay"
Have they given a reason?

Welcome to ThisIsMS. Here is another member's experience with a used Bioness. They were unsuccessful in getting it reprogrammed.
r7111 wrote:I feel everyone should be aware of what they are getting into by buying one. Mine does not work for me, might work for others but Bioness prevents you from selling it by not selling you the supplies that are necessary to use it and wont program a resold unit. This is from Bioness when I asked to sell mine;
“Unfortunately you cannot sell your L300 devices to another person. “They are a Class A medical device which require a medical prescription. For example, let’s say you had pain pills prescribed to you and when you were done with them, you had 10 left over pills. You can’t get on Craigslist nor eBay and sell your left over oxycodone…it’s illegal. Selling your L300s to other people is illegal in the exact same way. “(from Bioness)
This has been my experience and I just want others to be aware

Today I have visited my neuro. Right feet Babinski Sign positive, some days I feel weird about leg-arm movement coordination. She says I am EDSS 0.5/1. Injection sites are OK. So I am clinically very good despite my very heavy first attack of EDSS 5.5/6. She wants to see my MRI results 10 days later.
Lots of blood tests:
Total blood count is all perfect. Hemoglobin 14.2 g/dL
CRP 0.2 mg/L
Ig A 0.83 g/L
My liver is all good, AST 24 U/L, ALP 46 U/L, GGT 52 U/L
Blood sugar is all good. Fasting sugar level 99 mg/dL
Cholesterol is better but needs work. HDL 36 mg/dL, LDL 133 mg/dL, triglycerides 222 mg/dL
Thyroid is good, TSH 0.893 mU/L
Now the important ones:
D3 is 60.5 µg/L, 5000 IU winter dose, 4000 IU summer dose, daily
Calcium is 9.9 mg/dL, still borderline high and needs more calcium care
Magnesium is 2.12 mg/dL, daily 400-600 mg
B12 is 500 µg/L, daily 2500 mcg, gonna increase it
Ferritin is 664,7 µg/L, the last result was 584. I do not understand the increase. Maybe I had a minor attack. MRI results will tell.
Body weight is 73 kilograms. Still drinking coffee and eating almost everything but dairy. I am physically active.
I can't wait for MRIs. Take care ;)

Zinc is very low, 78. I am going to double zinc and copper. 15 days later I will test again.

good idea to step up the intake. it will be interesting to learn what effect 15 days of the higher dose will have. i'm thinking back to my doc telling me to take 100mg/d for a month, but that was when my level was 56.

I decreased my anti-depressant citoplaram to half the dose 3 days ago. Way too many effects. Anxiety, stress, emotions, all have increased. I know this will take some time and I want to discontinue citoplaram.
I am about to be a Q-Grader (Coffee tasting expert) in June. Yea MS and coffee. Why not? ;)

I am much better now. Still a little bit emotional, no signs of panic attacks but my sleep cycle is messed up. I plan to stay on 10 mg for a month and halve again.
These coffee exams will unveil if I have any taste/smell/sensory loss.
