    Biotin - do you take it and does it help

    My neurologist suggested that I start taking 300 mg. of biotin.  He says that there is research that says that it can help.  Haven't started taking it yet but am wondering if it helps anyone here.  Will probably order some over the holidays and start taking it in the new year.So many people I knew have left this site.  A lot of my hug history says "deleted user".  I have lost over half my...

    How does everyone feel about Solumedrol?

    I'm wondering if it's worth it to have the stuff after having so much trouble trying to get it set up.  The MRI of 11/8 indicated there is a new active lesion in the spinal cord and it's concerning enough but I'm still waiting to get the in-home treatment set up.  It's just so frustrating.  I've read that it's worthwhile to continue pursuing this but it makes me wonder if it really is. ...

    Liver Enzymes/Aubagio

    I am in my second month of Aubagio treatment. I have had two blood test to check my liver. Both times it is showing my liver enzymes are high. My MS specialist wants me to continue to take this for six months. Then, do another blood test to check liver enzymes. I do not know if this will cause harm to my liver. I am concerned about it.

    Bothered by cold?

    It's a good thing I now live back in Florida because the cold really bothers me now.  All I have to do is eat something cold and my legs feel like they are on fire!  A cool breeze hits them and yep, on fire.  Otherwise, they're fine but if I eat something frozen, my legs feel like someone lit a torch to them.  Crazy!  Gentle, warm hugs,  Linda

    I don't really know how to start this off so I'm just saying Hey I guess. I was diagnosed with MS 4-5 days ago and I'm 16 years old in the middle of midterms to say I'm a bit upretty would be fair right. It started a couple of month ago end September with optic neuritis. The hardest part of that was me not being able to roll my eyes at people without getting a pain shot to my eye. I was referred...

    Optic Neuritits / Blepharitis --MS

    Well, I went to my eye Dr, yesterday, he sees no optis neuritis yet, thank God. But he took magnified pics of my eyes and I have a hideous case of Blepharitis, and he said it occurs in people with weakened immune systems. MS is a usual cause of Blepharitis. He sold me a bottle of (get this) "eye-lid" cleanser to get rid of the gunk that you can only see under a microscope, and I came home and...
