Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Has anyone using copaxone found that the actually have stiff persons syndrome, not ms?
    I was diagnosed with ms 23+ yrs ago. 15 yrs ago, I was put on Copaxone. For the 1st 6mo I had gradual improvement, which then plateaued. After 15 yrs, it was discovered that I didn't have ms, but Stiff persons syndrome (sps). After going off of the Copaxone, over the course of 2 wks, my symptoms became so bad that I could not walk without assistance. I have contacted the drug company, and they have shown some interest, but I think they would be more interested if I could present info on other people with similar experiences. I am very serious that this could be a possible treatment for sps. As a pharmacist for 30+ years, I do have some knowledge of drugs.
  • Why would i get copd since i never smoked?
    I have several autoimmune disorders, I was shocked to get the COPD diagnosis since I have never smoked but I had second hand smoke first 23 years of my life.
    My doctor said my Autoimmune Hepatitis and Primary Biliary Cholingitis set me up for COPD.
  • Can emphysema be diagnosed by chest xray only?
    Just wonder, in 2013 chest xray showed enlarged lungs. 2014 chest xray showed emphysema per Doctor. Advised to quit smoking. Any further tests required to confirm or xray enough?
  • Effect of zoloft and vitamin d on seborrheic keratoses
    Has anyone noted a change in their seborrheic keratoses after taking Zoloft?
    Any changes after taking Vitamin D either 5000 IU daily or 50000 IU weekly
  • Does anyone else have trouble getting to sleep since beginning to take brilinta?
    Am trying to figure out just why, since stent insertion, I have developed insomnia which keeps me from getting to sleep at night. Brilinta is the only new drug I am taking.I am very sleepy, falling asleep in my chair while watching TV, but wide awake when I go to bed and staying awake until two or three in the morning. I do not nap during the day and am pretty active with cardio rehab and walking the dogs three times a day.

  • Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
    I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
  • 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!
  • Melatonin reduces essential tremor of the hand
    After taking Melatonin 1mg as a sleep aid for several nights, I noticed that my essential tremor of the hand was showing improvement. Within a week the tremor was almost unnoticeable, and I could print and write neatly, even when slightly stressed at work. I haven't seen this response reported anywhere else; have other people noticed this effect?
  • Bone infections involving my teeth crohns and prednisone over the past 12 years
    Dentist [2] tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
    Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
    Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.
  • 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.

  • Although my MS has progressed and l currently use a wheelchair, it has stabilized as l exercise everyday and honestly believe more in supplements than l do in medicine as they have minimal side effects and just hope and pray that a cure for MS will be found one day
