Request from Institute of Neurology Regarding Oxygen Therapy

Professor Kenneth Smith, PhD from the Department of Neuroinflammation at the Institue of Neurolgy (Queen Square) University College London has sent a request to people with MS who recieve Oxygen Therapy. His request reads:

"I would be interested to talk to any patients with MS who find that they experience a change in their symptoms while they are breathing hyperbaric oxygen. For example, perhaps someone may find that they can see better or worse in the chamber, or that numbness or muscle strength may change, or fatigue, etc., etc. I am interested in knowing about all changes that might occur in any symptoms. If you can help, that would be great."

It is encouraging to see some interest for the use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment with MS. If you have any information that you would like to feed back, please contact Kenneth directly:
