If you think histamines are your nemesis during allergy season, here's something that might change your perspective. New research published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology shows that histamine could be an important molecule to developing new treatments for multiple sclerosis (MS).

Hi,

that is very interesting...

In 2008 and 2009 I posted the experiences my sister made: it was always hay fever OR MS flare, e.g. when she had a flare during the hay fever season, her hay fever disappeared and vice versa ( http://www.thisisms.com/ftopic-6731-0-d ... rasc-.html and http://www.thisisms.com/ftopic-5800-0-d ... rasc-.html).

Best regards,
Sandra

I agree too. In years gone by my hay fever was off the scale, once MS kicked in it has never bothered me again (the hay fever that is). I would much prefer hay fever over MS. :?
