No wonder estriol slipped your mind! I'm
Of course it would if minocycline was so much better.
And, I should have been more up to speed on the minocylcine before I had my neuro appmt. I didn't know those exact outcomes.
I asked about minocycline at my appmt. but stated only very generally that there was a small study that suggested it was promising. I was summarily dismissed, with "...it wasn't a study, it was an observation".
So, please do keep up the "broken record". You know I'll do the same.
I actually have a lot of hope in This is MS for some potentially breakthrough moments for MS.
In my brief experience it seems like many people with MS (and those affected by it) do a whole lot of independent research trying to understand exactly what it is and what to do about it. In many ways we should be considered, especially collectively, among the leading experts in the world on this topic. We study it and live it.
Because people can share their "individual" expertise by submitting news, writing articles, posting, questioning and discussing in forums, challenging findings or statements, etc. without worrying about patents or profits, I am very hopeful that creative insights, potential avenues to solutions, etc. will continue to emerge right before our very eyes.
Remember that old adage, it's something like, the whole is better than the parts. People with MS can make significant contributions to the "whole", while scientists and researchers do the "parts", which in my opinion is one of the problems with the research.
So Finn, please keep sharing your expertise and wisdom. In many cases it may take a broken record to get past the status quo. And, I won't touch that line from an old cowboy song, other than to say they are doing a small testosterone trial at UCLA.
Hope you're doing well!
