multiple sclerosis - Has anyone been involved with any MS research programs?

A: 20 Dec 2011 Hi, Christieoo the only experience or the one time I was asked to be involved in a program, I tested positive for something and because of the blood work result I could not be a part of it. When I had to go for the blood draw, they had a certain nurse that had to come with me and the person taking the blood had to give the nurse my blood straight away. I had to sign some papers that I agree for them to test me to see if I could be a part of the study. It came back positive so I could not be apart of the study anyway. But anyway I wish you luck that you can be apart of the study, but I wouldn''t worry about feeling like you were a experiment subject think of yourself as being one of the chosen few who are about to help change the future. Take care Liz. Votes:+0CommentVote...

multiple sclerosis - was diagnosed with M.S. 2 years ago it has affected my rib cage on the right?

A: 8 Nov 2011 Hi and welcome. I feel for your pain and I know exactly what you are talking about. Our son has MS since 2005, aged 34 yrs. old. Most of his severe pain is in his thoracic spin and rib cage. he does have two lesions on his spine which contributes to his pain but the rib cage pain is called the MS hug. I am most sure that his what his neuro at Univ. of Penn hospital calls it. I know how he suffers with it and they are treating the pain with neurontin, baclofen and tynenol3. It doesn''t help though. He is currently on tysabri and had 8 infusions which are helping. What meds are you on? Hope this info helps you.

Managing multiple sclerosis (MS)

A: Hello - I''ll try and add my thoughts and observations to your excellent list of concerns where I think it might make a difference. The pain in your lower left abdomen (actually sounds like the upper left quadrant) is probably caused by muscular spasm. There are so many vagaries involved with MS this is probably best left to your neurologist to make suggestions on, since he can view the full patient. Regarding sleep: fairly recent studies found that there is no significant risk (of dependence of otherwise) in taking Ambien and related drugs (of the same family) on a daily basis for an indefinite period. I''d take it straight through the weekend and feel as good as possible as much as possible. About fatigue: this will doubtless be a variable, so the best thing for it is to learn to...


What is multiple sclerosis?

A:  This should help.. MS affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other. Nerve cells communicate by sending electrical signals called action potentials down long fibers called axons, which are wrapped in an insulating substance called myelin. In MS, the body`s own immune system attacks and damages the myelin. When myelin is lost, the axons can no longer effectively conduct signals. The name multiple sclerosis refers to scars (sclerosesóbetter known as plaques or lesions) in the white matter of the brain and spinal cord, which is mainly composed of myelin. Although much is known about the mechanisms involved in the disease process, the cause remains unknown. Theories include genetics or...
