I HAVE HAD MS FOR 5 YEARS NOW, AND HAD 3 FLARE UPS IN THAT TIME. THIS THIRD TIME WAS THE WORST FLARE UP. SEVERE TINGLING FROM CHEST UP, LOST CONTROL OF BOTH BOWL AND URINATION CAPABILITIES, BALANCE, WEAKNESS, AND I WAS REALLY USING A WALKER TO GET AROUND.

I'm now taking my second 3 day, 1 gram infusion. Sept was for eye problems due to the MS and now its overall pain and weakness; both flare ups. other than the after taste (which can be helped with lemon drops) the infusion are good.

Comment:
I have the 3 day IV treatment only whne having a severe flare. I have always found it to help. We do the IV at the Dr.'s and I have them just leave the needle in rather then get stuck each time.

I don't like the ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I take this every 4 weeks (IV with an in home nurse) and by the time 4 weeks comes up I am ready for this. It does help me to walk with my walker instead of power chair and have more energy,less tired and aches and pains. For about 3 to 4 days my face turns very red and swollen and hot through-out body. Good for about 3 weeks then we start over.
