In case anyone is interested, I came across a reference to this... From the UK MS Society, "in the seven parts of this video, Dr [Alasdair] Coles gives an overview on four current or emerging therapies for persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). These are Tysabri, Cladribine, Fingolimod and Alemtuzumab." http://www.mssociety.org.uk/support_and_services/audio_and_video/video/awareness_talks/current_and_emerging_therapies/current_and_emer.
Many people who come off of Tysabri have been put on Gilenya pills. You would have to get checked first for heart issues, immunity to chicken pox and maybe one or two other things, and have an eye exam to rule out macular edema (swelling). Then of course you have to get approval from insurance or proof that you could afford the pill. Once that happens, you get scheduled for a 6 hour appointment for your first pill. They keep you on an EKG to watch for lowered heart rate.
Some risks, but not as bad as the literature makes it sound. This site has a good video on the Tysabri (Natalizumab) Hope this helps.
I take D3 only. Vitamin D Council has an articles about vitamin D levels: I tested my vitamin D level. What do my results mean? I just picked the last two levels since the article is very long.... "My level is between 100-150 ng/ml Although these levels aren’t toxic and aren’t usually harmful, they are thought to be too high. There are no known benefits to having a vitamin D level over 100 ng/ml.
I am getting Tysabri, from which I have no side effects. I had not heard of Terry Wahls, so I looked her up.
oops hit post before I was done. Thursday -Tysabri # 3 Friday -rest since the Tysabri causes fatigue for a day afterward. Son home already from college for a visit.
After 4 years of Betaseron, Beta w/Methotrexate, and 3-4 exacerbations a year (IVSM after each one), 2 infusions of Tysabri, a year and a half of pulse steroids, 2 months of Copaxone, I volunteered to be a lab rat for Tovaxin. I travel from Boise to Portland for this and just finished the Phase IIb double blind study. I am now waiting to find out if I will continue in the extension study. This is the phase that we will all get the real drug.
I have not had the vaccine in years and I wont be getting it anytime soon. I am on tysabri and have mixed feelings about getting it. I cant visit my mom but its ok she should be home today and will see her when she is better.
- ) If there were no profit motive, then there would be no Tysabri, Avonex, Rebif, Copaxone, Betaseron etc. No one is going to develop these drugs for free.
I found the article. It's 12 years old.

Cant do anything at this point, because this vocal cord infection from the Tysabri is still there. Also doc said, NO more talking for a week again. I am re injuring myself. Yesterday, my 12 year old, decided to Mummify a dead chipmunk for science. He was supposed to use a raw chicken leg. No, he decides the dead chipmunk on my lawn would be much better. I was DISGUSTED to say the least. He comes in the house wearing gloves with this thing wrapped in tinfoil.

bama88 are you taking any medications for your RRMS? what is happening is that the myelin sheath is being torn away commonly known as dymelinating this happens when your body sees itself as a foreign body and starts attacking your immune system and consequently your myelin which is what is causing the misfiring in your brain with your neurons During a multiple sclerosis attack, inflammation occurs in random areas of the white matter of the central nervous system.
My meds - Baclofen 20 mg, 3x/day Gabapentin 300 mg 3x/day Trileptal 300 mg 1-2x/day Claritin 10 mg Tysabri 300 mg 1x/month Can these be numbing my noggin? Or is my noggin just turning to mush? Or am I depressed? I don't necessarily feel blue, just numb. WTF?
It feels like almost Wednesday to me.... I was at the clinic today for Tysabri #11 or 12 - I'm rethinking that it might just be #11. Asusual it was a non-event except for the drive time and the sit in the clinic time. I have a urogyno appt on Friday - something incubating and I need to stop it before it gets out of hand. Three more days to work and then a long weekend ahead. I find these four day work weeks fit my rhythm pretty darn well. Thanks for starting this, PD.
I have also discussed my wishes with my husband and kids, so everyone is clear on what I do and don't want and why - that way there would be no surprises if something were to go bad. (I have now been on Tysabri for 2 years, and am well aware of the risks.) I have it set up so that my husband would make decisions if I am unable to, but he obviously would also discuss them with the children as well.
We would like you to upload a home video to youtube.com . Once the video has been uploaded, please email us the link. Please upload a 3-5 minutevideo telling us in more detail about the tattoo you want and why you want it. We want to hear the story behind the tattoo in as much detail as possible. Make sure you are in a well-lit room, and frame it from the waist, up to your head (not too close, not to far). Be as outgoing and expressive as you can.
I am not going to leave the site just because she says that I am not having a flair up of MS, I have still been diagnosed with MS and I am not going to give up my new friends just because of that! The new neuro has suggested that I try exercise and she gave me a video that is put out by the Toronto MS Society. She also suggested that I start playing a video game that will take me out of the present and have me deal with a different world and role playing would be a good idea.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BGBSsKBrbI&sns=em If I didn't know better I would think I was the one that posted it. She explains everything that I am going through. I have a horrible fear that one morning I am going to wake up and not be able to walk or may be blind in one eye. I know I can't live my life in fear of the 'what ifs' but sometimes not worrying is easier said than done. Sorry I'm rambling, I'm just having a 'feel sorry for myself' kinda day.
I even brought a video to show her them). Or she’ll say - that’s probably from my prescription meds (my cognitive difficulties). And then totally doesn’t comment or say anything about other symptoms (blurry vision, weakness, & pelvic floor spasticity that causing huge problems - that's documented my PT biofeedback mcgs). She ended up telling me at the end, everything looks good & my MS is stable. What?! Why doesn’t she listen to me??? I’m currently on disability.
The ophtho was so horrified that he called a colleague in town to see if he would see me. He did that day, and video conferenced with a N-O who diagnosed it as ON and ordered various tests in addition to the IV Solu-medrol. He insisted I get a new PCP, and 3 weeks later I had one as well as referrals to actually SEE the N-O and a neurologist. Five weeks post attack: Completed tests (MRI, LP, EVP, and blood work). Diagnosis: nothing.
Working 4 days this week (and they're beating me up already!). Dental appt. and Tysabri infusion Wednesday. Hoping to ride my bike Saturday.
Recently my girlfriend sent me a youtube video of a girl telling abt her diagnosis. Which caused me to cry. I understood her meaning which was to remind me of god. But it made me upset. I don't need to constantly be reminded. This disease is going nowhere. So don't stare at me, let me live my life, and pls look at me for me.
yea...I have thought the same thing about it being PPMS. I just now started Tysabri, so I am praying that it will help. I did talk to my neuro, and I think you are right about dx RRMS so DMD can be used.....and Ty has even shown improvements in brain lesions, so my fingers are crossed. Relapse, Attack, Flare and Exacerbation are all the same: This is from: http://ms.about.com/od/multiplesclerosis101/p/ms_relapses.
It won't hurt to try lotions, but if you're like me they won't do any good. I tried liquid Benadryl, Spray Benadryl, poison ivy stuff, and various strengths of anti-itch cream, including prescription. Also tried several allergy meds. Nada. Nyet. Zilch. Hope your luck is better.
