After 24 hours of thinking and Cece's suggestion that the following article is appropriate for the General Discussion forum, I am adding it here:http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/ ... htm?mid=51
(Kudos to dania for the initial post, "Relaxed muscles are 'shorter than short'", in the CCSVI forum: post179761.html#p179761)

I'm getting so spastic, my shoulders are almost in my ears. I put a business suit on the other day and I couldn't understand why the sleeves were so long..it used to fit.It was my arms that were short.general-discussion-f1/topic7227-15.html#p179790
Muscles are mentioned so often in our postings that I begin to think they are fundamental to the problems of MS. For many of us, symptoms began, but neurological testing was normal at first. Could bladder problems, constipation, foot drop, tremors and ataxia, etc. be the result of "relaxed muscles"? This discovery in Australia seems VERY important. Of course, I suspect that relaxed muscles might be the result of insulin resistance.
