Hi, does anyone know of a doctor in the Phillipines who will treat chronic illness in a half decent way?  MS?
I believe my uncle has lyme (he's diagnosed there with MS), and he's too sick to travel back here.  He's in the hospital, and their prognosis isn't good.  He has an extreme amount of muscle wasting, can't walk, etc.  They're just treating with of course steroids and pain meds.  Also, can anyone who was diagnosed with MS let me know if any specific anti-depressant has helped?  You can e-mail me privately if you'd like.  I don't know if the anti-depressant recommendations would be any different for those whom have been diagnosed with MS (tends to be an individualized response), but it's a shot in the dark.  Any information I could gather would be helpful, he's really struggling.  Thanks so much,

Have you posted this on the MS board yet? Gretchen is very knowledgeable about MS and she and others there can probably help you out.

As for an LLMD. You can try Ticker at or maybe
