I had GA on the top of my right foot when I was a teenager. Dr had no idea what it was and it went away after 6 months or so. At 35 I was dx with Multiple Sclerosis. And am now 43 and on Copaxone. Never connected the two things! Wow! Hmmm

- How do i know if an injection site is infected?
I have MS and take an injection 3 times a week. My stomach area on my left side will occasionally burn or sting days after as if I just did my injection 5 minutes prior. I've been taking the injections since 2007 and this basically started maybe 3 weeks ago. The pain is on and off.
- Can my sister take phentermine with multiple sclerosis to lose weight
I worry she is taking a pill that will affect the nervous system and may not be good for her body.
- Reaching those with granuloma annulare!
This worked for me its gone!!! I thought I was the only one in the world with this ! But guess it is
more common than I thought!
- Has anyone been prescribed methotrexate for granuloma annulare?
I have had GA for 2 years now, however it has gotten progressively worse the past 6 months. It has now spread over 80% of my body. I am seeing an Endocrinologist next week as I believe my thyroid may play a big role in this. My Regular Dr. suggested I speak to Endocrinologist about a drug called Methotrexate. Has anyone taken this for GA, and if so, can you please tell me if it is working, side effects etc?
I am desperate for some relief!

- Dont use copaxone. it caused huge necrosis of my flesh!!
I took injections for 1.5 yrs. No problem. Then received a batch that caused huge indentions in my skin. I am a body builder, very obsessed with how my body and skin looks. Now I have massive (1/2 dollar sized) craters in my thighs and upper arms. I can no longer compete. Copaxone ruined my life. So sad, I was diagnosed with MS, but it's the medication that destroyed me. it's the f**ing treatment
. Be careful. The drug companies don't care. They are just making $$$ off of you.
- Ms relapse - changed to copaxone in april
I've never joined one of these sites but saw this site. I have had MS for 14yrs but changed to Copaxone in April, had a relapse last week and wondered how others were getting on with it. I have a puffy left calf/ankle which can be a side effect of Copaxone - have others had this - can you reduce the swelling?
If I haven't started using this site - my apologies!
- Developed systemic scleroderma while on copaxone for 10 yrs.
I just tested positive for both crest and systemic scleroderma. I already have ms and have been on copaxone over 10 yrs. I believe copaxone may have caused this. I dont blame the makers. I am sure it has helped more then hurt, but I wonder if this has happened to others. If so it should be something ppl are aware of. That there is a risk.
- Topamax for weight loss, causing diarrhea
I was taking Topamax for weight loss and it worked very well. After 2 months I started having diarrhea. I stopped Topamax and the diarrhea stopped. Is there any drug or supplement I can take Topamax that will stop the diarrhea?
- A self-conducted trial with prozac in a case of "benign" ms
I want to show that, with the approval of my doctor, I started taking Prozac (10 mg daily) to see if the number of the lesions on my brain remains the same. After 14 months no new lesion showed on the MRI. I should mention that I have a mild form of MS, if one may put it like this, but the previous three years my lesions had doubled as compared to the past 15 years. Not wanting to start an Interferon or other immune-suppressing treatment I chose Prozac. At first, I had a lot of problems (insomnia and bouts of crying and indifference) but after a few months they eased off. The only really bad symptom is sexual, i.e. difficulty or rather impossibility to orgasm. In 2-4 months I will take another MRI and check the results, and come back with details, hoping they could be of help for other persons with MS.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 days ago):
I have been told to put up the level of the drug Amitriptyline but I work and if I up the level then I will not be able to carry on working.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I was on Tysabri for 6 months and ended up with breast cancer 2 months after I stopped taking it. Is there a correlation. I heard if you are Brac 1 or Brac 2 positive Tysbri could be the culprit. If anyone has family members that have had cancer, check if you are BRAC positive. It could save your life or at least a horrible ordeal.
From this study (1 month ago):
I started taking gilenya about six months ago. A few weeks after starting the medication I started getting acid reflux symptoms and am now in medication for acid reflux. I want to know if the gilenya may be causing my acid reflux.
