    MS Drugs--Which One?

    Hi. I was diagnosed a couple years ago after 2 bouts with Optic Neuritis. Fast forward to now, I have some additional symptoms, (balance and dizziness mostly) and an MRI-confirmed lesion in the corresponding area. So, the doc and I agree its time to go on meds. I am interested in hearing opinions on which one to choose--The good, the bad, the ugly, based on experiences. Looking at Tecfidera (the twice a day oral one) and Avonex (once per week injection). There are others of course, but these are....

    Sometimes Bioflex Pro is caused by heredity, illness, medication or anything in your head. Impotence can be tough. If it's all in your head, there's a way to find out if your impotence is repairable. Just tie a piece of paper around the penis and let it stand overnight. If it breaks during sleep, you do not have erectile dysfunction, but something blocks you from getting an erection during intercourse.

    Trying to decide what treatment to start

    I am 67 and was diagnosed with m.s. in 1995. I have been on Betaseron, Copaxone and now Tysabri. My main problem is incontinence, but I have been having Botox injections along with cathing and my life has drastically improved. I would like to try Ocrevus for the convenience of taking it every six months but also in hopes it could improve my other symptoms. Is there anyone who is close to my age that can answer my question? M. M.

    Feeling Sick

    A couple years ago I was sent to the hospital for what they believe, but haven't told me yet, MS. I have been having problems recently all over my body and am not sure what is causing it and no one will help me. They are taking a very long time to help me with anything. I began having problems back in April with my bladder. It hurt so bad, but it was that I didn't have a bladder infection, they told me. I am taking medication for my headaches and it helps with my bladder, but it hasn't....

    Vitamins for MS patients

    Which type of vitamin B is needed? My vitamin D is on the lower level? I used to take 1000 IUV but it was not enough so I was told to up my dose to 2000 IUV and take along with vitamin C (eat kiwi, orange etc.,) because the body absorbs it better? IS THAT RIGHT? If not, when does one take it, an hour before eating??? What about Magnesium? I used to take Mag2, two ampules a day, one in the morning and one at night. If not, is one banana a day cover the dosage needed? What else is needed?

    I wet the bed

    Last night I was woken by me urinating on myself. I was in complete shock. I have never had bladder problems before and have NEVER wet the bed as an adult. Should I be concerned? I don't know if I should call my neurologist or wait to see if it happens again. I know that I do not have a bladder infection. I've had tons of bladder infections in my life time and can tell I am getting one before it even registers on the quick test at the doctors. Is bed wetting common with MS?

    Late Onset MS and Spasms

    I was diagnosed with late-onset MS three years ago. My MRI showed I had lesions in my lower spine. I was having balance problems about a year earlier. For the last 3 years I have been on a drug called FAMPYRA. I take it twice a day. I'm not sure if it works but better than nothing. For the past year I have been getting muscle spasms in my left leg. I can now feel the spasms throughout my body which sort of catches my breath. I get them very frequently now. I saw my doctor yesterday and he prescribed....

    Recommendation by my Neurologist to Consider Stopping Meds

    I am a 69 year old female. I was diagnosed with MS in 2004. I believe I had had it for some time but the symptoms we very varied, fatigue, tingling and awful cramps in my legs, constantly tripping up stairs. The diagnoses was an accident, I had been having pain in my neck and they did an MRI which was just low enough to catch a lesion at the base of my skull. They looked further and found five other lesions. So I have been on a beta interferon, Neurontin, Provigil. On my last visit to the neurologist....
