    Hi Caz

    I have MND and do not take Riluzole. My hair and finger nails grow rapidly with this disease.

    Hi,

    Increased metabolism has been noted with MND. Maybe as the body fights the disease. Is urine darker too?

    Best wishes

    Hi caz,

    Might be worth mentioning to the Doc when you next see him ,That as we pay for the NHS and therefore pay his wages , he may want to offer a bit more in the way of helping you ,rather than worrying about costs he has little to do with , considering its the only drug that offers anything to us , Wonder how he feels about the costs of Cancer treatments , and yes I seem to have to shave more now and have got really good at doing my nails !!!!!
