    Hi, my husband is the one that is sick. He became sick in November 2016. We thought he had vertigo however the MRI showed lesions on the brain stem. We spent three weeks in the hospital having all sorts of tests and a brain biopsy that left his left side of his face numb (tingling). We have had two rounds of 5 days of 1000 mg of steroids and have been on 60 mg of oral steroids since the middle of January, 2017. The latest MRI shows the lesions are almost gone. We have now started the transition to methotrexate. We dropped from 60 mg to 50 mg of prednisone at the same time and we are experiencing more dizziness and off balance. I am looking to have somewhere that people understand what we are going through.

    Hi I started taking folic acid about two weeks ago but I stopped cause am not one who is consistent in taking medicine. Am someone who can go hours without eating. I am slim nd I also want to put on a lil weight. Ok. So I decided to start taking the folic acid again since I have been told its really good if one is trying to get pregnant, now my issue is, I feel headache, nd hungry always though am not like that. My family is happy am eating well now. Do u think its the cause of the folic acid?

    Hi, New to all of these forums etc but thought id give it a go. I have recently been taking folic acid approx 3 weeks as me and my partner are trying for a baby. I have been to the doctors this morning regarding my skin as I have been suffering for years - nearly 10! with bad acne to the point where I am giving up and it's getting out of control!
    I informed her of our plans for a child etc and she has prescribed me erythromycin and states that this is fine during trying to concieve and pregnancy. It wasn't until I got home and remembered I never mentioned about taking the folic acid neither did she mention it, I'm just concerned about taking these both together and if anyone else has had this issue or not and what the long term affects of this could be. I have looked online but not really had much luck in finding an answer, Can anyone help?

    Personal experience about folic acid.
    I used to take pure folic acid (the description depicted that it only contain folic acid of 500 mcg per pill). And I started to nose bleed every day, after using of such pill for a week.

    recently, I bought adult gummies from 'nature made' brand, which claims to have 400mcg folic acid. I started to have a nose bleed again after using of such product for about a month.

    For both experiences, my symptom of nose bleeding disappears soon after I stopped the pills.
