' Nevertheless, those small savings may add up to $300 billion by 2029, according to some estimates, and future technologies that make it easier to assess the structure and function of a protein could add to those savings." And as an example of what can go wrong "In 2003 Johnson & Johnson learned the hard way that a seemingly small change to the manufacturing process can have devastating consequences.
THINGS THAT LOOK LIKE LESIONS ON ONE VIEW ARE OFTEN JUST THE BLIP EDGE OF A NORMAL STRUCTURE. THAT's JUST MY OPINION. EVERYTIME I'VE SEEN PEOPLE TRY THEY GET ALL WORKED UP OVER STUFF THAT ISN'T IMPORTANT. I WOULD DEFINITELY LEAVE A CALL FOR YOUR NEUROLOGIST TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT THEIR INTERPRETATION OF THE FILMS IS. MY MS NEURO IS WAY BETTER THAN THE RADIOLOGIST AT READING THEM. YOU HAVE CONTINUED ON YOUR COPAXONE, RIGHT? HOW ARE YOU FEELING?
1 AV conduction block. This is becoming increasingly symtomatic with a feeling of fullness and pressure in my chest and some shortness of breath. After having an absolute strength draining session with a rate between 45-55, I'll come out of it and race in the 95-110 bracket for a while. That is really not feeling very much better. Today is one of those days when it's been near constant. Matter of fact, it woke me up this morning. I sometimes get a moment of relief with a fart.
The sting never got better for me although I would still take Copaxone if I could. I thought Copaxone was bad until I had n injection for a blood thinner in my belly after surgery. That was the most painful shot I ever had.
1cm with a fixed septation and echogenic material and irregular nodular echogenic structure along the wall that measures 3.3X3.3cm. There is no free fluid. Impression: Complex solid and cystic appearance left ovary measuring 7.4cm findings are suspicious of a cystic neoplasia. The differential diagnosis include complex cyst such as hemorrhagic cysts. Recommend correlation with laboratory values CA 125. Less likely is a cystic teratoma. No free fluid or fluid collection.
Unsure how long I have had MS. Many brain lesions- no spinal lesions- newly taking Copaxone. Question Are other experiencing abdominal pain? I have had constant abdominal pain for 13 months. It is a burning sensation that is about a level of a 6 (on 1-10 scale) when my bowels are almost empty (I often only drink water for a couple of days to get the pain down to that level. It is currently the level of an 8.
I need to call the Neurology Clinic and start the process of getting on Copaxone. Then work until Thursday. Need to get the house cleaned up. 10 days of vacation starts Friday.
Then the question was what to do. None of the neuros at my center think highly of Copaxone, and my symptoms were pretty stable. Not being on a DMD made it easy to pretend my disease wasn't serious. I'm sure many of you are thinking that this was truly dunderhead thinking for a physician. Yep! Guilty. Denial is a beguiling and attractive way to slip along while giving sage advice to everyone else.
I have not been on much lately but have noticed lots of new members. So FYI, I have RRMS, dx 2007, and on Copaxone since 2008. If anyone has else has felt like Alice in Wonderland with the weird sensations and/or if you know what might be the cause, I'd love to hear from you.
-) By thew time I was diagnosed my doc also felt I was beyond the firstline meds like Copaxone and Rebif. I went right to Tysabri. I was on Tysabri for 20 months and then it stopped working. I never had any problems at all with it.
It’s reputation was that of a death sentence and it was feared like leprosy! In 1965 the first attempt was made to provide doctors with structure in making the diagnosis of MS, called the Schumacher Criteria. It was actually very simple.
I loved all the medical research that backs up the link with cow's milk protein that seems to look very similar in structure to mylin. Most compelling of all was Prof Jelinek's own story being diagnosed at 45years and has now been relapse free for over 10 years since starting the diet. I may be brain washed and desperate to stop my rapid decline but I am willing to give it a try and so far am not missing the dairy or meat.
thruogh the years i have been semi- dx'd , undx'd and re-dx'd i havae tried copaxone, avonex, beta and poo poo loads of solumed my coarse in aaction now is tysabri.... my dr has 400 patients on it do you have your blood monitor for JCV?
clean the bathooms, organize old photos, bake some muffins, organize computer files, etc. A friend's mother is turning 60 in March and I offered to put together a video/slideshow to play at her party, from old family photos which they were able to sneak out of her house.
At this point the only medication that I take is Baclofen (waiting on insurance for Copaxone), but I only started that about 2 months ago. I tried doing Metamucil, but that didn't help. As far as increasing fluid, which quite honestly I need to do, I don't do because of the urination. I'm an RN, so it's already hard enough to go the bathroom the number of times that I do, let alone adding more fluid!
Hello. You can have fibro and MS at the same time. I too have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. My history of diagnosis' started as arthralgia & myalgia, then came fibromyalgia, then a year later came the dx of MS. At the onset of strange sensations more than one doctor looked at me strangely while I described my symptoms. I became accustomed to their facial expressions which they tried to hide but weren't good at.
Steph - The pupils are a complex mix of two different actions. They can activately (meaning under the action of muscles) both constrict to become smaller and they can dilate, becoming larger. Each action is handled by different nerves. There are two muscles around the pupil in the iris. The first is a circular muscle that surrounds the pupil like a sphincter (purse-string) called the "sphincter pupillae.
You might want to read my journal entry. Copaxone will cost me nothing out of pocket. I already have potential damage to 75% of my neurovision system. There is no medical evidence that any change in diet or lifestyle will preserve my vision. There are multiple blinded and follow-on open label studies that Copaxone will reduce my chances of having a relapse or additional lesion load. This is a personal decision. If they can show me life style changes that will help, I'll do them too.
On MRI MS lesions are perpendicular to the corpus callosum (large midline white matter structure), tend to radiate out from the corpus callosum (finger like projections) and will enhance with contrast if acute. Small vessel ischemia tends to be subcortical in a random distribution and less confluent than MS lesions. Small vessel ischemia never enhances with contrast.
He was quite concerned that I'm not getting the right treatment, and I reminded him I'm allergic to Copaxone and am on Avonex. Anyway, he called the swallowing thing Esophageal Motility Disorder, which I know has been described and discussed here from time to time. He gave me a referral to a swallowing center at the same hospital, but noted that if I'm not having trouble at the time, nothing might show up. Some of our members might not know that this kind of thing is rather common with MS.
Now have a great neuro that I adore and who has a great attitude, listens, wants me to ask questions, doesn't 'direct', but gives options and suggestions. I am on copaxone, started earlier this month. The meds today have a proven record for slowing progression, there is lots of hope! There will be some changes and somethings to adapt to, but that is just part of life anyway! Much like everything in life... you get out of it what you put into it. And attitude is everything.
He has since lost balance, coordination, speech structure and had illness like symptoms (ie flu) All of these symptoms seem exacerbated by the bloody Rebif jabs he takes 3x a week. I have an appt for him scheduled for 10 June and I feel we will get another dx....Until then does anyone know what damage this Rebif shot could be doing to someone w/o MS? He's being encouraged to continue and "drink lots of water" but this is of course by the bloody mfgr of the drug itself.....
