Hi all. I see new treatment for spinal injury, a method of allowing the brain to move limbs. Optimistically this may help people with ms. 

 

Best wishes

    • Treatment?

      Hi,   something that has recently been niggling me is why have I never been offered any 'treatment' for my MS..is the no treatment route a common thing? am I expecting something that doesn't generally happen? I've had MS since 2003 seconday progressive since 2011 according to neuro'.. personally I think I've always been primary progressive..I have no memory of any 'remissions' just never ending symtoms and an insidious decline..the only thing I was ever offered was Gabapentin for my leg pain which made me feel ill..   The thing is I went to see my GP not so long ago about something not MS related..well she was a locum..they are all locums at my surgery none ever stay long..anyway for some reason she asked what treatment I was on for my MS..I said none..she was so shocked..she said I must have 'slipped through the net' and apologised profusely I was quite shocked by this..it started me thinking if things might have been different..maybe I would still be able to walk..maybe a lot of things..maybe I was diagosed too late for treatment..I only see my neuro' once a year so come September if by the responses on here it seems usual to have treatment I will bring it up with him.   Fran x

    • HSCT treatment in Sweden

      A close relative is looking into treating her RRMS with HSCT. As Europe is the most viable option I'm interested to hear about any experience from Karolinska University hospital in Sweden.   I've managed to find a blog from a Norwegian woman describing her experience and her life after the treatment. By contacting the hospital I've got the info that they have expanded the capacity and how the process looks like. I'm however looking into additional sources of information. Do you guys have any input? Thanks   http://mindevenmore.com/   http://stockholmcare.se/Upload/Autologous%20hematopoietic%20stem%20cell%20Transplantation%20for%20MS%20patients.pdf

    • Accident and Injury Claims Query

      I fell and injured my ankle over two years ago. I decided to persue a claim as I was crossing badly maintained public ground. Finally, I have received an appointment to be assessed by medical personel.   However....about seven months after the accident I began to have several worrying symptoms that have led me (through several GP appointments) to be on the waiting list to see a neurologist. I have noticed that my range of symptoms are possible MS symptoms whilst my GP has mentioned M.E. twice.   My question is: should I mention this ongoing diagnostic process to the medical practitioner examining meon behalf of the law firm? Would it help or hinder my case? If this is MS (or some other disease that shares similar symptoms) it may have affected me at the time, though as far as I was aware then I was perfectly fine. I was carrying a child and avoiding a reversing car at the time.   So do I say anything about this or not? If they look at my medical files, surely they'll notice the recent surge in activity?!? Help!
