I could cope with a limp, fuzziness in the fingers, a need to visit the toilet in a hurry, but the nightmare scenario for me is anything which affects my cognitive functioning. This research article, like many others, notes the loss of grey matter in addition to white matter (myelin).
As usual observations rather than explanations.

Does this research call into question the notion that MS is a disease which attacks myelin? It seems to me that it is a disease which attacks the CNS (grey matter and white matter). The national MS Society websites might need to revisit their definition of what MS is.
